Overheard and Pet Peeves


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“The sock line is dead sexy!”

“Breast-feeding a baby is like partying in Milwaukee.”

“That’s a beautiful wig he’s got on.”

“I am the reigning queen of flat tires.”

“There are no lovely towns near Green Bay.”

“He believes the infrared scanners will make him impotent.”

“‘I hear Clay Mathews may not play next year.’ ‘What does he play? The guitar?’”

“It looks like my grandma knitted this sweater while wasted.”

“Where are you? You’re at my snowmobile.”


Is there something that really irks you, gets your goat, rubs you the wrong way, drives you up the wall, gets you bent out of shape, puts a stick in your craw, or makes you want to throw in the towel?

“Slipping on an icy sidewalk and having no one to laugh with, because falling down has to be one of the funniest things in the world.” ~ Lonely Laugher
