Overheard, Shout Outs and Pet Peeves


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?

“I just missed my mouth.”

“I think that’s the guy that licked my hand.”

“I learned something about football and football-watching.”

“All he does is smoke and perform exorcisms and it’s so sexy.”

“I painted a plate. It looks kind of moldy.”

“Sometimes you just need an onion loaf.”

“Where are the Door County olive oil caves?”

“Breathing is typically good.”

“Do you have some water? I dropped my phone in rice.”


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

Is there something that really irks you, gets your goat, rubs you the wrong way, drives you up the wall, gets you bent out of shape, puts a stick in your craw, or makes you want to throw in the towel?
