Overheard and Shout Outs: Feb. 22, 2019


Are there tidbits 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?

“People who love essential oils come out of the bushes and woodwork.”

“Don’t force me to look at your magic.”

“You can’t say that – you’re not a mom.”
“Yes, I am. I’m a mom to my baby dolls.”

“Raisin toast solves everything.”

“Stop touching my gnomes!”

“Beards and milk don’t mix.”

“We wanted to get hygge.”


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

“A shout-out to the J. Fitzgerald truck driver who noticed I was stuck on Waters End Road, flashing my brakes to warn him not to get behind me. He carefully passed me and plowed a path for me to use. Bless you, and thank you, kind driver! And to my daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Ron MacDonald, for digging me out of my driveway.  It’s going to be a loooong winter!” ~ Sue Daubner

Shout-out to all the Door County businesses that stay open in the winter. Without them, the long winter season would seem pretty bleak. Thanks!

A slap on the wrist to drivers who slam on their brakes while on a busy street just to look at something on the sidewalk.
