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 have to rethink my entire life.”

“Have fun in your shiny green pants!”

“I love Krista Clothes Days!”

“I’m sorry you had to have your tonsils drained today.”

“Yeah, this tanning thing has been weird for everyone.”

“I hope you find great pleasure in your Mod Podging.”

“Oh, why not join the masses and post about your bliss?”

“Doesn’t he know work is for knitting.”

“Thank you for keeping me posted on your lipstick decision.”

“She makes me want to get a divorce and I’m not even married.”

“A lady always knows when to leave a party, and Winter 2014 is no lady.”


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