Overheard at the gas station:
Man on cell phone: I don't know, somewhere on the Peninsula, I needed to get gas. .... No, it's not Palo Alto. I can't see a Starbucks from where I am.
(Apparently no matter where you are in Palo Alto you are in sight of a Starbucks.)
Overheard at the shelter 1:
Woman (looking at kittens): Oh my god, they are so cute. Look, baby, aren't they adorable?
Boyfriend (looking at cell phone): Dude, Leo got a tattoo on his ass. Look (shows phone to girl).
(Personally, I'd rather look at kittens than Leo's ass.)
Overheard at the shelter 2:
Woman, looking at a kitten, to husband: Honey, I've found my birthday present.
Man: Can't I just buy yourself some shoes?
