Overheard: 7/22/06

Overheard on the 7 train en route to Shea Stadium to watch the Mets play the Houston Astros.

Scene: Two little beautiful Hispanic boys are sitting on their parents laps, they are about 2 and 3, respectively.
One little boy has a Mohawk haircut ala Maddox Jolie-Pitt. He is sitting on his mother's lap.

Little Mohawk boy: Will there be food there?
Mom: Yes, of course.


Little Mohawk boy: Will there be cake?

Mom looks beseechingly at Dad.

Dad answers: No, but there will be french fries.


Little Mohawk boy: (big sigh)

Cute. I think he might be on to something though...of course a piece of cake would probably run you about $30 at a ballpark...
