Overheard & Shoutouts


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?

“Mother nature needs her meds regulated.”

“And suddenly you find yourself on a motorcycle in Wisconsin eating pie.”

“There are now 50 new and used ice castles for sale on Highway 10.”

“What would a fish with teeth look like?”

“I managed to drop my quiche on the floor twice and, for good measure, dropped a scone as well.”

“Google knows me too well.”

“I feel like I should go out and do something but it’s already 2 pm so the day’s basically over and I should go to bed.”

“I think Julia Roberts Legos should be made.”

“Today I met a homeless man with a Twitter account.”

“You know the thing that hangs in the back of your mouth…googly. You know what I’m talking about!”

“There is something spicy on the end.”


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