Overheard

[Out to eat .]

“. . . she read the straight average, not the weighted average . . .”

“. . . ”

“. . . so I filled out an evaluation just like anyone else. But there were no categories . . .”

“. . . ”

“. . . sixty thirty-second commercials . . .”

“. . . ”

“. . . and the other is one-oh-four-point-three . . .”

“. . . ”

“. . . does she do all of them, or just the specials?”

“. . . ”

It felt like David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King .
