Overheard in L.A.: Where Gym Bunnies Roam
We know that burning calories after last week's debauchery is hard work, and it's a bummer that Mother Nature doesn't come equipped with an LED display to measure your caloric output. Our Overheard in L.A. round-up this week includes snippets of overheard conversation from gym bunnies, Skittles nazis and trickle-down economists.
Our Overheard in L.A. feature relies on you to send us the strange conversations you overhear in this city. Send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org. (In the e-mail, put "overheard" in the subject and tell us who said it, where they said it and any amusing context.)
