Overheard in Houston

I overheard the most awesome conversation this morning. I walked into Starbucks to get my Wednesday latte. (I go to Starbucks every Wednesday morning. It helps me get through City Council.)

There was a group of older gentlemen all sitting around talking. Here's what I heard.

Old Man #1: "What is lip gloss, anyway?"
Old Man #2: "It's just some clear stuff you put on your lips."
Old Man #1: "I've never put it on MY lips! Why would you need lip gloss. I don't get it."
Old Man #3: "Ladies use it. You don't have to worry about it. All you need to remember is that if you do have any liquids with you, they need to go inside a plastic bag. I don't know if lip gloss has to go in there."

(At this point I realized they were discussing the airport liquids rule.)

Old Man #4: "Remember the days when you flew in a suit and tie? And the ladies wore white gloves."
Old Man #2: "Those were the days. Those were the days."
