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?

“Rug burned armpits are probably the most uncomfortable thing I’ve dealt with in my life.”

“I’m trying to figure out my wedding and my life!”

“‘What do you want for your birthday?’ ‘If you want to you can give me a gift then something I can eat.’”

“Having people not fall and crack their head open is my goal for the winter.”

“I will treasure every pee I take in peace from here on out.”

“She needs to take an eternal nap.”

“Love is a dove…unless you are being eaten by a hawk.”

“‘There is a fruit this wine tastes like…’ ‘Grapes?’”

“I had ‘80s hair in the ‘90s. I admit it.”

“I was in the Hobby Lobby, walked down the wedding isle and started crying.”


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

“A BIG thank you to the three gentleman who stopped and assisted in pushing my car out of the snow bank (at the end of my driveway) last week. I was literally stuck for less than five minutes when help arrived and was on the road in 15. I love living in a small community!” ~ Jess Farley

“Shout out to this Arctic weather – I love feeling as if I’m living ‘beyond the wall.’” ~ A Stark at Heart

“Shout out to those folks out there who know the difference between ‘reply’ and ‘reply all’…and therefore spare me from reading reams of unnecessary communication.” ~ Anonymous
