Overheard and Shout Outs: Jan. 13, 2017


Are there tidbits 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?


“It’s not sexual harassment if we’re not at work.”


“Whoa, there’s more kids than humans in here.”


“Oh no, I got feathers from my boa in my beard!”


“I’ve got tons of boogies, the dancing bugs.”


“Oh look at that, Washington Island is going to have an Ephraim location.”


“I wish I had the ability to talk to dead people because then I would have some friends.”


“They’re only really scary when people have duck lips. That’s when I draw the line.”


“I’ll be back in Colorado in a few weeks. Hopefully I don’t get a contact high.”



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