a fine season for toasts

Overheard in New York is an addictive blog by Morgan Friedman. People submit odd bits of conversation that they overhear. I suppose some of it may be made up or enhanced for effect, but I don't like to think so.

Here's a recent entry:
We Drink to Freedom Toast Here

Drunk guy: Here's hoping you're in Heaven ten minutes before the devil knows you're dead.
Drunk girl: What's that mean?
Drunk guy: It's an Irish toast.
Drunk girl: Oh. Well, here's to bread, eggs and cinnamon.
Drunk guy: Huh?
Drunk girl: That's French toast.

--Stoned Crow, Washington Place
