Overheard & Shot Outs: Nov. 9, 2018


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?

“Maybe in your real life you really just don’t feel like Wonder Woman.”

“There’s something about the communal experience of shared emotion.”

“Just like maxis, I have wings.”

“The pad thai stands alone.”

“There was a time in the late-’90s when dumb and weird didn’t fly.”

“I’m kinda a cheeseburger barbarian.”



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

Shout out to Fall Fester who left an unopened can of beer in one of the flower pots in front of the On Deck Sister Bay store! Made my day! Happy gardener!

Bravo and brava to all student thespians who are involved in their school plays and One-Act competitions.

Although I don’t want to reprimand Mother Nature, a slap on the wrist to her because the day after I spent hours and hours cleaning up my lawn of leaf litter, wind and rain brought all the leaves on my trees down. You’d never know it looked meticulous the day before. Maybe I should have procrastinated on the clean-up.
