Overheard & Shout Outs: Dec. 21, 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?

“A muskrat’s dying out there.”

“Nobody’s getting out of this alive – that’s life.”

“It’s like a book my grandma kept in the bathroom.”

“They’re a pair of plastic trash shoes!”

“If you actually see Santa, he’ll hunt you in your dreams.”

“We can’t do Joan Rivers anymore.”

“That’s glued together with beans, right?”



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