overheard in Providence

I think this was last week. cgoldfish and I were walking from Wickendon Street to Wayland Square when a guy on a bicycle went weaving past us. He was steering with one hand and talking on a cell phone with the other and was really not concentrating on going in a straight line at all, so it was a little hazardous. It wasn't really clear who he was talking to, but we did hear one snippet of the conversation as he went past:
"I'm just really frustrated! I haven't had any sex!
So now whenever I see someone riding a bicycle in a kind of a hazardous way now (which isn't an entirely uncommon occurrence) I think to myself, "Aw, he's probably just frustrated because he hasn't had any sex."

The end.
