Late afternoon at a restaurant. Two young women tweeting.
“Is that like good grammar? ‘Strolling around Copenhagen’?”
“Ok so I wrote ‘Casually exploring Copenhagen with this hottie'”
“With this hottie?”
“Ok, look up cutie, smile, open your mouth, with your teeth out…”
Evening infront of a shopping mall. A young man talks on the phone.
“Hey you, yeah, I’m on the street, I’m outside. No. You get down here. No you come out, now. Now! You come out now! Yeah. [hands the phone to a young man next to him] Thanks a lot. Ok, so my friend comes out now. You give him twenty euros, ok? You just say it’s from me, ok?”
“…. well… nah… It’s too complicated.”
“Just give it to him, and then you…”
“Forget it. I won’t.”
“Yeah… well I need to… [walks away]”
Afternoon. A well-dressed elderly couple walk by a restaurant. The woman says to the man:
“Hey… look! A bottle of red wine, 10 euros! Should we go?”
“We already drank one bottle, darling.”
On a bus. An elderly lady hops on and starts talking to another across the aisle.
“There’s a fine hassle at the bank! What a cue. And one man fell on top of me. He fell on me! He was feeling dizzy you see. He had a dizzy fit. And was sent to the hospital. After the fall… I didn’t need to [pause] Luckily nothing happened to me! Even though I was squished right under him! [laughter]”
“Yeah, sometimes things…”
“…once a man’s shopping tote broke on the escalator, a canvas tote, the seam in the bottom tore up, all the books scattered around… I lost my step among the books. Yes… well…”
In a restaurant, lunch hour. Two middle-aged women talking.
“Our girl, she’s really social and outgoing but the boy – just like his father.”
On a train. Afternoon. Voice on the tannoy.
“And for the English speaking passangers: we are having technical problems so we can’t go as fast as we want to. We will be late about five to fifteen minutes. Apologize.”
Coffee house, afternoon. Two young men talking.
“He had a wife, did you know that? For years. And now he’s dating, a woman. Like… I didn’t see that coming. ”
“Yeah, I’ve seen… in concerts, I’ve seen him together with…”
“Yeah, hmm. Didn’t see that… but I’ll be in Berlin so I won’t be…”
“Maybe they’ll do a broadcast in radio or…”
“Yeah, I’m sure….”
