WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY!!!
I wish I had something exciting to reward you with, but I suppose it’s rewarding enough just to read my clever notes here, eh? ;) Can’t be too bad out there if The Sexy is still around! Lol…
(okay, that was bad)
In all seriousness, though – I miss coffee shops like a mother, so thought we’d go down memory lane and share some of the last #overheards I managed to grab before the chaos struck. Not many financial gossips in this batch, but I sure am saving more now that I’m not visiting cafes every single day! So that’s worth something, right?! RIGHT???!
Hope you get a good laugh out of these…
And that I didn’t catch any of you here in the act ;)
“A beard is like sweatpants for your face”
Nothing truer has ever be spoken, haha…
“Inside of every man there is a little junior high guy inside of them.”
Okay, except for this one :) I admit I still see myself as a pre-teen still trying to figure things out! I’m certainly not a FATHER OF THREE as it appears to everyone else?! I still look around for the adult in the room whenever one’s needed!
“Do you have a radiator I can dry my hat on?”
Now this one was the highlight of my day…. :) Just imagine a dripping wet 70-year-old coming in from a sudden rainstorm and asking the barista to dry his hat out for him. With a radiator no less! But while they couldn’t appease him in that regard, they did have something else that could do the trick – an oven. Lol… A few mins later it was dry and crispy again :)
“My husband finally got his PHD! I think I need a certificate for not divorcing him throughout it… He’s been A.B.D. for awhile now – All But Dissertation”
Low blow!!! But as a spouse who also lived through this, it def. does seem to go epically slow, haha…. Do NOT miss those days one bit while our growing family was living off my dwindling blog income at the time… But all that work’s since paid off and the Mrs. continues to climb and bring home that health insurance!! Oh, and also an income!
“Don’t make me cross the street just to kick your ass.”
Overheard on the streets of Brooklyn, New Yawk…
More than 10 years later and it still makes me laugh when I think of it!
“OK ping pong”
I’m on the train and a guy keeps saying “OK ping pong” as a catch phrase.
“If you are saving for retirement, you must be dead inside.”
Two young women having dinner together… Overheard at a restaurant by a friend who found it so ridiculous and knew I would appreciate it. I have many questions for this person! – James
My favorite #overheard turned out to be a band name. I couldn’t figure out where my acquaintance came up with the name, and it turned out he loves to ride the trains and (possibly) mishear random things.
The band name? Sparkle Carcass.
And yes, there have been a few bourbon-tasting evenings where a few of us competed in a sketching contest for their new logo…
“STOP COMPLAINING! There are only two people in the world, those who don’t want to hear your problems, and those who are glad you have them!”
-“Mad” Max Speedwell
And then the line that still echoes strong all these years later:
“The challenge is not to touch it.”
Told to a 13 y/o by a 65 y/o trying to instill some good lessons while in the check-out line at Target, lol… Never a bad place or time to spread the financial gospel! And just as relevant today than ever!
Keep on keeping on everyone…
Life is still good despite the disruption!
