The Eatsdropper wants lots of fungus

Ufa, it’s been scorching, stinking hot ’round these parts lately. I don’t mind much, though our condo has a tar roof and no air conditioning. The natural air conditioning in the form of fog will return soon enough. But no matter how hot it is, I’ll still welcome the virtual whispers in my ear as you send me your overheards to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com or @Hedonia on Twitter.

  1. “the fuuuuuunguuuuuussss is the best part” – talk about precocious kids 😀
    laughed my sorry behind of about these eatsdroppings. I’m just wondering: did the woman proceed to give her child the wallet?

  2. This is totally random, but I met your mother today and she told me to visit your blog! She’s quite the entrepreneur!
    Love the Eatsdropping, by the way!
