Overheard and Shout Outs


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?

“I head to jury duty. Don’t worry, I get paid $10 a day; rumor has it, lunch too.”

“This tastes like coffee on battery acid.”

“How and why do snakes climb stairs? Who thought that was a good idea?”

“I think you’d do well in a nudist colony.”

“Feeling like somebody at the top of the heart-lung transplant recipient list.”

“Our internal battle over what constitutes a good comic book movie continues.”

“My best student worker this summer loves listening to John Mayer, so she’s pretty average now.”

“This is a recipe for odd dreams.”

“I like third gear.”

“It’s like skinny-dipping in air.”

“I can’t understand Jakob Dylan’s lyrics due to acid in the womb.”


Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?
