This is why the Eatsdropper drinks wine

Whew, hot stuff in the city today! You know what else is hot? When you whisper sweet little overheard nothings in my electronic ear at eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com or by Twittering them to @Hedonia. Mwah!

Him, in shorts and flip-flops: "I wrote you a two page poem, I’d like to read it to you. I wanted to get you a rose to hold while I read it."
Her, in a beautiful dress and gorgeous heels: (looks around nervously) "Maybe not here."

"I spent so much time writing it, I really want to read it to you. It’s
romantic. What, should I pretend I haven’t spent days writing it?"
Her: "That would be okay, yes."
Him: "Okay, I’ll just forget it. I’ll forget I wrote you a two page poem and was going to read it."
Her: "Yes, that sounds like a good plan."
Him: repeats himself over and over, saying same thing…
Her: "Maybe we could just leave."
Him: "And ruin this evening I have planned? What’s changed between us?"
