Eavesdropping in Oz

She says ….
(to the muscular male, hand in hand)

“You’ll probably forget about me?”
*Australian question-mark*

 

He says ….
(to the tiny, fresh-faced, hopeful girl)

“Do you think so?”

 

She thinks ….
(wrongly)

“Ah, he says he’ll remember me!” Screen Shot 2016-11-17 at 10.20.19.png

 

He thinks ….
(with a slight sense of self-congratulation)

“At least I didn’t have to deny it” Screen Shot 2016-11-17 at 10.21.18.png

 

I think ….
(with empathy)

“Ah, you sweet, sweet thing.
You have so much to learn.

And you never, ever will”.
