Business overwhelms today, but I did overhear something peculiar out on the street earlier that I can share as well. It was a man talking to two female companions, all kinda shuffly and dumpy but they seemed maybe a little more back-office staff than tourist... perhaps the HR dept. is taking a holiday together? Anyway, here's what dude said: "So, do you want to try to find some cilantro now?" As noted above - peculiar.

hmm... an intriguing possibility there. It was just so odd, in that he said it in exactly the same way as you would say "So, should we go grab a burger now?" "So, feel like getting a beer or something?" I've just been picturing them grazing on a big communal bowl of cilantro ever since my encounter.

tonight at New Season's deli counter:

customer: "Does that have cilantro?"

staff: "No. it has capers, but not cilantro."

(and yes, i thought of your own overheard conversation as i overheard this one. because. well. yknow.)
