“Well, we know he ate it ‘cuz it’s halfway out his heinie.”

Would not, could not, turn around.

Yuk.

OVERHEARD-Pet Store

You can take your leashed pets into this big box pet store.

Little-Bit was stretched out in the child seat of the cart looking like a stuffed animal. She had nothing to do with the following:

Woman, speaking to a young lady on her hands and knees cleaning a nasty mess left by the woman’s dog:

“Dixie just gets so excited when she comes to see her friends, don’t you Dixie? Dixie, look what you made this poor girl do. Dixie just LOVES to shop here! Everyone’s so nice and y’all give her treats!”

Young woman cleaning up remains of said treat from the floor, thinking, “Yes. We just LOVE it when Dixie comes to visit and stuffs her face.”

GRRrrr…

OVERHEARD-Hair Salon

The woman behind me was getting something complicated done to her hair. I could see them in the mirror but I could also hear them perfectly because I am an unabashed eavesdropper. The hairdresser was, apparently, unhappy with her boyfriend.

Client, “What you need is THE RULES.”

Stylist, “What’s the rules?”

Client, “If you knew what the rules were, you wouldn’t need the rules and you wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place!”

Stylist, “It don’t matter. He’s a cowboy. He wouldn’t know the rules if they bit him in the butt!”

OK

OVERHEARD-Drugstore

Several customers were standing in line.

The elderly man being waited on had the store’s plastic card, his credit card and several coupons.

The woman behind him said, “I’ve never seen (juts her chin out) a MAN have coupons before.”

The man turns around and with a little smile replies, “Maybe it would be faster if they would just give us their best price first.”

The woman at the end of the line had a toddler with a runny nose and said, “You know what would be REALLY fast? If you had a separate line for all the rich people who don’t NEED coupons!”

The two women were facing off when I skedaddled.

OVERHEARD-Bank

Customer, handing over a check, “You keep $200.00 and give me $50.00.”

Teller, “You forgot to put your account number on the back.”

Customer, “You know me. I was here yesterday.”

FLORAL TRIBUTES

Do you ever notice public gardens and think about what a gift they are to all of us?

Not only the ones commercial ones such as the intersection display below:

but also the gardens in ordinary people’s front yards like this:

So, thank you on behalf of all the car drivers, bike riders, stroller-pushers, school children, dog walkers and joggers who pass your gardens everyday. You make this sometimes ugly world a more beautiful place.

Your efforts are appreciated.

SHAZAM, YOU AMAZE ME

when you work.

And I really like your tag cloud.

I even understand why you don’t identify a lot of classical music.

Probably not your demographic.

But Grateful Dead?

Come on.

ADDENDUM- 5/8/09-SHAZAM keeps freezing up on me. Is anyone else having this problem?
