Odd, Funny and Fabulous: Overheard in the Courthouse Elevator

The scene opens in a jammed elevator going down from one of the top floors of the Daley Center. A group of attorneys force their way into the car and strike up a conversation.

Male Attorney: I like your shirt. Seems festive.
Female Attorney: I’m wearing green in celebration of Notre Dame’s win over BC.
Male Attorney: What’s “BC”?
Female Attorney: Boston College.
Male Attorney: Is this a sports thing?
Female Attorney: Football.
Male Attorney: I’m gay.
Female Attorney: So?
Male Attorney: These sports things just go right over my head.
The rest of the elevator spends the remainder of the descent in silence collectively asking “Huh?” and praying that they don’t start to giggle.
