Overheard and Shout Outs: Feb. 3, 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?

“Now his hidey hole is wide open!”

“Does your cat have its own piano?”

“I like him. He’s cool. And he’s taller than me, so that’s fun.”

“I’ll eat the number two!”

“Can you go get my pants off the toilet?”

“Last year a dog kept eating the balls.”

“Stupid dude with his big boy toy.”

“Still waiting for the Harry Potter movies that are 20 hours each, depicting every aspect of the books.”

“Just beat my high score in Bejeweled! It can be summer now since I accomplished my one winter goal.”

“You’re a busy woman. You don’t have time to push four buttons.”


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