Overheard in a train
On Friday, New Zealand had another series of earthquakes, which shook up Blenheim and Wellington rather a lot. Yesterday, Saturday, a woman across the aisle in a train had a cellphone conversation about it. And this is how it went:
"Was I hurt? Yes!"
"I hurt my shoulder!"
"I hurt it fighting a man to get under a desk."
"Well, he was a big, burly fellow, and very determined."
The woman, as it happens, didn't seem to be hurt or in any pain, but obviously, whatever gallantry her co-worker owned had been shaken out of him.
