Overheard and Shout Outs: July 22, 2016


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?


“It’s not alcohol, it’s beer.”


“This is important because Uranus is involved.”


“I already have a cat. Children aren’t toys.”


“UV Blue and lemonade is so 2006.”


“Why is its tail punched into its butt??”


“Oh yeah? Well a lion peed on me!”


“You put your hand in your diaper? That’s sad. I put my hand in my diaper, too.”


“You should name your stuffed moose Mooselini.”


“The jukebox works … You just have to be aggressive about inserting your quarters.”


“When a lady’s cleaning the men’s bathroom, maybe wait a minute and let her finish before you go in.”


“I just need to meet a nice man who knows nothing about me.”



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