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 don’t even think you’d be able to stare directly at their offspring because you’d be blinded by the beauty.”

“I chased an elephant down a hill all weekend.”

“‘Using a Neti Pot is my new favorite hobby.’ ‘The wonderful world of Wisconsin winters.’”

“Looks like Matt Lauer moved in too!”

“Group sexting. What fun!”

“It’s always been a dream of mine to at least qualify to be assassinated.”

“That may come in handy when you start popping babies.”

“We like to feel our arteries clogging up when we eat popcorn.”

“Guess what I bought you, but I ate it?”

“Spilled some cheese on my son’s head. That’s what we call a Wisconsin baptism.”

“I thought there was a dog in here, but it was my hair.”


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