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?

“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.”


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


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
