It wasn’t exactly overhead.  It was half directed to me, a conversation between the launderette lady and another very old local lady that was in there.  They were, I don’t know, they must have been in their 70s.  The lady that lives near me near Murray Grove, and she had been away for a week or so and I’d gone to do my laundry.  And then she was saying there was a shooting just outside the shop.  Somebody was killed the other day just outside the shops over there and they were talking about it.  And then she started going on and on but what was the matter anyway, it was just a bit of piss and blood and vomit anyway.  That’s what makes the world go round and I thought that was…

Interviewer:            a bit of philosophy.

Respondent:            Yeah, wisdom.
