Eavesdropping with Matt (Episode Thirty-Seven: East Meets West)

Dedicated to the portly fellow in the short shorts and tight white sleeveless shirt at the picnic table behind us at Manly Beach, and also to the six elderly Chinese tourists at the table next to us, who had no idea that I could understand what they were saying.

Tourist 1: Look at that big foreigner! He is very fat.

Tourist 2: He is a little bit big.

Tourist 1: I would say he is fat. Everyone look at that man, don’t you think he is big?

Tourist 3: He is big.

Tourist 4: Do you think he is cold since he is wearing so little clothing?

Tourist 5: Let’s go. I’ve had enough to eat.
