Catching up on Overheard in New York

My favorites from the last month:

Gangster chess player: You're cute, but let's see how smart you are.
30-something career woman: I'd play you, but I'm on a lunch break from my job. Checkmate.

--Union Square

Eight-year-old boy, showing his dad game he is playing: Daddy, daddy, she won't come!
Dad: Keep going, she will come eventually.

--F Train

Guy #1 at bar: I was driving all day today. My groin is really tired.
Guy #2 at bar: How were you driving?!?!

--Heartland Brewery

Enthusiastic cowboy-hat wearing teen tourist, indicating subway car: We need one a these in Texas!
Friend, sullenly: We got no place to go in Texas.

--1 Train
