I walked home from work yesterday, reading a collection of science fiction stories by women (Women of Wonder). It took me only 40 minutes and felt fine.
On the way I passed a well-healed professional woman talking on the phone. The snatch of her conversation I heard reminded me of the Zeitgeist discussion. It went something like this:
"We need to work up a language. She's planning to email them Friday morning. We need to work on the language. She should sample the conversation ..."
How interesting that I heard a sample of a conversation that had the words "sample the conversation" in it!
