I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic

Overheard on a bus

“I have absolutely no skills. I can meow!”

Actually this made more sense in context – that of two jobbing actresses discussing the pressure to have other strings to their bows, such as dancing, playing an instrument, being able to whine like a dog (?!). But why let that spoil a good quotation? These two were quality, too. Other examples included: “getting up for people on the bus is a win-win situation. You get to feel good about being courteous, and you remind yourself that you’re young enough to be able to stand”. And all between the city centre and Leichhardt.
