Ever since I added this category, I have not overheard anything juicy. I knew it! I jinxed myself. Crap! And I had such high hopes for this section. Oh well, I am leaving the category open for future use. Just in case. I think my luck might turn anyway. Superstitious Jill has said some incantations. Ohm, Ohm, Ohm. Oh Monty Python! :).
C’mon … say something stupid people. Jilly needs something to weave. I need to write about you behind your back. Lol! Reminds me of a friend who when someone would walk up as we were having a conversation and ask “hey what’s up?” She’d quickly reply without a second thought “we were talking about YOU!” And the person never really knew was it bad or good? Was it you or is it me? Yep, it was always you! We were talking about YOU! Ugh, As if (said in my best Alicia Silverstone voice over voice).
As always, more to come.
One side of a phone call. OP = Other Party
SA: Gurl I told you, I already lost 21 pounds.
OP: in my imagination OP says “Good for you!”
SA: and I know it’s from giving up alcohol for Lent!!
OP: in my imagination OP says “Gurl I know I couldn’t do it!”
SA: Ya, you know it’s hard
OP: in my imagination OP says “C’mon Friday. Mama needs some margaritas!”
SA: I’m gonna set my alarm for midnight and then have those drinks!
Lol! And this was at 7:00 this morning. Now that’s planning for the weekend on a Monday. And me, I gave up nothing for Lent. Instead, I changed my ways. 40 days without sarcasm. 🙄 you be the judge.
As always more to come.
As a writer, I’m always on the hunt for new fodder for my stories. I heavily draw upon my real life but sometimes that gets boring. Well not to me but to all of you. Anyway, I thought to myself where is another source of material? And then it hit me. I’m inspired, amused, or outraged, perhaps any combination of the 3 by things I overhear. Truth be told, you can’t make some of this sH!t up 😂. Truth is stranger than fiction. <insert truth of your choice>.
So without further ado, the new category is ………..rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat ……… 🥁 drum roll please …….. rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat ….. so much for without further ado …………….rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat-rat-a-tat 🥁
Introducing: Things I’ve Overheard
With that set up, this better be good. For now, I’m gonna post little short quips. And later on down the line, I’ll see how this develops. I’m hoping this category will provide an enjoyable little release. Or a cheese fest.
As always more to come.
