Overheard: Dating her is like dating Jesus.
Where it took me: Full disclosure: this line was not overheard at Starbucks. My friend, D, heard it when someone walked passed her while she waiting in line at Toronto's Fringe Theatre Festival. Which meant she never heard the rest of the conversation. What on earth could this guy have meant? There is probably a long, theological, poetic exploration possible from this line, and maybe I'll get there one day. But I wrote a haiku, instead, which I think highlights the absurdity of the thought, and leaves the reader (and the writer!) with lots to ponder.
