One of the immediate things I noticed when I was visiting Toronto in July, was the joy of overhearing little snippets of conversation. This isn’t a new phenomenon in my life. After eight years in Germany, I noticed it every time I visited the UK. But in Toronto I kept a list of my favourite overheard snippets.

All I wanna do is go training and drink beer.
