Have you ever overhear someone talking and an idea popped to mind. Even if it is just a short snippet. Let me give you an example. The other night at a NaNoWriMo write-in several college students passed the table in which the group sat. Their target turned out to be the vending machine. This is the snippet I heard.
Person 1: I do not know what to get.
Person 2: I like to get those. I like to bite the heads off of them then eat the rest.
Now, I do not know about you, but I thought that sounded hilarious. It also brought up ideas from others around the table when I retold the story that night. Most everyone thought about a possible Zombie book. I did too. But there are so many ways that one can take the idea.

What ideas have you gotten from eavesdropping on a short conversation?
