Overheard and Shout Outs: Sept. 29, 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 a choice between a play and a tattoo, I’d take the tattoo. It’s shorter.”

“Three-and-a-half hours of wasted life.”

“Before getting custom license plates, one should buy a driving instruction manual!”

“I really wish there was a fresh bread-scented air freshener.”

“I think I had a narcoleptic episode at the meeting and left my phone there.”

“I don’t complain. I just state the obvious.”

“Look at you having fun! You’ve got a computer and a computer and a computer!”

“That’s one better than the big fatties!”


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

To Fishstock for a wonderful season, especially Sam Brooker and Eric Lewis!

A slap on the wrist to people who carve or spraypaint their names on park and preserve property. Take only memories, leave only footprints! Please!

A pat on the back to the Bedrock Bluegrass Band, whose performances in 2017 have generated $827 in tips for charity. Bravo!
