Overheard and Shout Outs: April 28, 2017


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?

“Coming to work with bugs in your hair? Yeah. You’re totally eco chic.”

“There are no secrets in Door County!”

“That’s drunk speak for ‘giraffe.’”

“Everyone smells like sour cream and onion.”

“Back in my day, we had to make our own ankle socks!”

“I was trying to teach it to climb, but I don’t think it’s a mountain goat.”

“Stop, or else I will say stop again.”

“We have the shirts, you have the arms.”


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

A pat on the back to individuals who are putting their money where their mouth is by donating to the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, all of which are facing potential cuts in the federal budget. Way to take a stand and make a difference!
