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?

“So…I didn’t know Jaws was a true story.”

“Those birds are pigs.”

“That’s what poops your pants.”

“I would marry this girl, she’s like Swedish pretty.”

“I woke up with a Katy Perry song in my head. I wonder how this day will get worse.”

“New Year’s Resolution has changed. New one: own a skeeball machine!”

“There are shards of glass in my chest cavity.”

“My mom says she’s ‘allergic’ to marijuana.”

“I hope you get violent diarrhea.”

“Don’t you have some mysteriously foxy cousin with a weird haircut for me?”


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

“Shout out to the Door County Highway Department crews, for removing the old dead trees along County T, EE and WD and other county roads. No more worries of falling branches smashing my windshield. Been there!” ~ Gloria Launtenbach

“Shout out to those who donated to the Door County Visitor Bureau’s Big Bundle Up Campaign. More than 650 items were collected – and that’s awesome, especially during such a frigid winter.” ~ Wishing All Warmth
