Overheard and Shout Outs: Nov. 13, 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?

“Social media. It’s extended everyone’s 15 minutes to a half-hour.”

“It’s an odd thing, Christmas decorations and music on a 70-degree day.”

“One more baby whose head smells like spit!”

“Put a costume on some people and they lose all inhibition.”

“I don’t get stagger in my swagger.”

“So I got these Bill Nye emojis. What’s an emoji?”


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