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?


“Happy New Year! Yep, not even 24 hours into it and I think I already screwed it up.”


“We need less cowbell.”


“The secret ingredient is Obama’s tears.”


“Why would I be boogieing at temple?”


“Wow. You’re a nerd, geek and a dork!”


“I’m starting to think that this Powerball business is a government conspiracy to get the people to pay off the national debt.”


“It’s too bright, I can’t hear you.”



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