Overheard earlier this week at the KFC/Taco Bell on South Street, Philadelphia, a conversation between a twentyish man at one table and a twenty-something woman at another:

Twentyish Man: "Yo, you need some green?"

Twenty-something Woman: "What?"

Twentyish Man: "You need green?"

Twenty-something Woman: "Money? Do I need cash?"

Twentyish Man: "No, girl, green."

Twenty-something Woman: "Huh?"

Twentyish Man: "Green. Green, girl."

Twenty-something Woman: "What are you talking about?"

Twentyish Man: "I got some awesome green. And X. Coke. Blow."

Twenty-something Woman: "Uh, no. I think I'm okay."

I didn't catch on any more quickly than she did, but then again, I don't expect to encounter drug dealers when I'm eating a pair of Double-Decker Tacos.
