On the train home this evening I was adjacent a gaggle of ladies of a more mature vintage, all of whom were in the mood for multiple crossover conversations.
The to and fro was bewildering. I zoned it out fairly rapidly but was deeply tickled to hear one of them say ‘To cut a long story short, I lost my mind!’
Has anyone else heard pop lyrics quoted in ordinary conversation? Not necessarily on a commuter train. Anywhere will do. I’m not fussy.
