Overheard, Shout Outs and Pet Peeves

OVERHEARD

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?

“All these guys have a diaper and underpants on, right?”

“Doing the dishes is like having a big juicy fart while having an important conversation.”

“Sometimes crabs happens.”

“A ring toss game would really tie the room together.”

“I want to shave a cat now.”

“I don’t know who he is, but I know I’m related to him.”

“I picture Miss Piggy and I think of her eyes.”

“Gosh, I’d like to trade in this uterus for a mix tape right now.”

“I eat cheeseburgers and drink whiskey every day and I’ve never seen a doctor.”

“Never buy a horse for $50.”

“First question: house centipede – friend or foe?”

“You never know…you know.”

SHOUT OUTS

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

“Shout out to the Door County fish fry. So tasty. Every week.” ~ Fish Fancier

“Shout out to Stone Harbor Resort for featuring live music throughout the weekend – and offering free popcorn!” ~ At Least I Think It’s Free

PET PEEVES

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?

“Can’t buy bitters (or other liquor) at grocery stores after 9 pm. That’s when I have time to get to Econo Foods!” ~ Bitter in Sturgeon Bay

“When I get sucked into watching three one-hour episodes of Snapped on Oxygen – a show basically about psycho men and women who kill their partners in jealous rages. Quality, compelling television with awful reenactments.” ~ Guilty Pleasure
