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?

“It has a lot to do with the sharp angle of the bluff and the width of the peninsula.”

“That tube down there on the floor does absolutely nothing”

“I usually drink Stolichnaya, but I’m not too happy with Putin and Russia lately. I’ll have Smirnoff instead.”

“It’s real hard to grow a cow from seed.”

“That Tiger Lily had some growl I’d say.”

“Some mental implants would be highly advantageous.”

“Grandpa made awesome muffin tops.”

“That cloud formation is a perfect surreal version of what is happening in my brain.”

“Hey cheeky monkey – smile, would ya?”

“Look out for the squirter.”


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