Overheard and Shout Outs: Nov. 11, 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?


“I was going to leave, but you don’t leave when ‘Locomotive Breath’ comes on. It’s a matter of principle.”


“I’m really a trashy rapper at heart!”


“Don’t make me hate the ‘90s.”


“He’s having a hard time dealing with being a hipster.”


“I sent a friend request! Let’s see if he knows how to do that.”


“If you don’t love your lawyer, you are a national disgrace and I hate you very much.”


“I don’t really think I look like anybody. That’s not true — I look like a Gummi Bear.”


“They’re either pigs or sheep. We’re not sure.”


“I was much more desperate in Chicago.”



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


A shout-out to the squirrel that delayed the Indianapolis Colts-Green Bay Packers game on Sunday – at least we got to see something from Green Bay in the end zone!


A slap on the wrist (or smack on the body?) to the pathetic insects that keep getting stuck to my autumn gel window clings. Go away already!


Our greatest appreciation to the team at Door Community Auditorium for organizing the 2016 Winter Blues Fest! Booker T. Jones, Charlie Musselwhite, the North Mississippi Allstars…what a lineup!


A shout-out to the election season for being over!


A slap on the wrist to drivers who don’t go 35 mph through Ephraim – do you realize how long we’ve been waiting for this??
