Overheard

July 25, 2008

FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
(baby-talk cooing)
Ooooooooh! Who is this? Who is this? Isn’t he adorable?!?

OTHER FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
Oh, thank you!

BABY (O.S.)
(inarticulate gurgling)

FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
Yes you are! Awww. Boo boo boo!

OTHER FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
Hee hee! Well, we have to go. Time for someone’s nap…

FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
Oh, so soon? Bye-bye! Bye-bye!

Murmured goodbyes, a pause, elevator DINGS its arrival. A beat. Then:

FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)
(loud, strident)
I fucking hate kids.
