Overheard and Shout Outs: July 21, 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?

“If I had known it was going to rain, I’d have worn a bra.”

“I went swimming in Europe Lake yesterday. I dropped trou. You should have been there.”

“I’m a mother. I’m all-knowing.”

“I’d probably squeal with excitement too if I got to play in a laundry basket.”

“He can’t make eye contact with my mom. Her request.”

“I have a rat too. Actually several of them, but mine are mean and live in my walls.”


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

Shout-out to grocery stores that provide complimentary coffee, and antibacterial wipes for your shopping cart.

Thank you to drivers who stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, and give cyclists the three feet of space they are entitled to!

A slap on the wrist to Facebook users whose comments serve to demean or demoralize, rather than contribute to meaningful dialogue.
