This is a question Overheard secrets

When I was a barman, I stood by polishing a glass as a couple had a hushed argument two feet away about what they were going to do now she was pregnant. The bloke promised to leave his wife, but subsequent hushed arguments revealed that he did not. What have you overheard?

Story from about this time last year
I was on the bus one morning, and there was also a kid, travelling with someone I assume to be his older sister (she looked about 16, he looked about 5, both in school uniform), and he was asking loads of questions.

The concept of the emergency exit seemed to fascinate the kid, and so he spent 10 minutes asking questions about it. He then asked "Is it so superheroes can save us if we're in trouble?" She agreed, and told him it's so all superheroes can help, even if they don't all have super strength.

When he asked about this, she started going on about the emergency services. I only heard about the Fire Brigade being super-brave and the Paramedics being super-clever (her words) before I had to get off the bus, but this kid was loving it, and from the grins a few of us were exchanging, so were we.

Just really made me smile.

My sister asked my Dad
why his nose was so much bigger than hers. She was six.

My Dad said that when you turned seven your Dad would break your nose so it could grow into an adult sized one.

She was worried all afternoon until he set her mind at rest.

If I ever have kids, which I won't
I'm going to tell them that Narnia is DEFINITELY located in the back of our wardrobe, and they should keep looking for as long as it takes me to get fed up of my Xbox.

For his birthday,
a mate's six-year-old asked for a horse that can go to Tesco's for you and carry home shopping in it's mouth.

My mate was baffled until his kid added,"Like the one Sloppy's got."
