Overheard and Shout Outs: Dec. 23, 2015


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?


“What’s this little shower cap doing on my desk?”


“You don’t want to kiss me. I don’t even know you.”


“Obama is probably the reason I didn’t get my Easy-Bake Oven when I was 5.”


“Step, shuffle, salute, krunk shake. That’s how I dance to the National Anthem.”


“Hitting on your host’s wife helps to build camaraderie.”


“Everyone would’ve done better as a chubby little pug.”


“Hopefully she gets half his tan in the divorce.”



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

A shout-out to the theater, music and other organizations that create special events during the winter for Door County locals who can’t always make it to their regular season events during the summer. It’s great to see everyone have the chance to take in a show or performance!
