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?

“Retractable … that’s fun!”

“A Ficus losing its leaves? That’s like me popping a Xanax.”

“He ate a goldfish to impress a carnie, so…”

“Well, it’s finally warm in this part of the building. They must have gotten the AC figured out. Also, it smells like smoke…”

“I don’t want to ruin the lovely salad thing happening in my mouth.”


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