There are times when I overhear things. I am not eavesdropping. I am not spying I just happen to hear a snippet of a conversation and those jems are just too funny. Here are some of the things that I have overheard over the years....

"Here, honey, have some Twizlers. You can't just eat chips all day."
We were at the beach. I was lying down for a little nap when the mom next to me told that one to her son.

"This is the first time we've been out since you chained me up and tried to shoot me"
Honestly I did hear that one when Tom and I were out at a steakhouse. I dont' know the context, I but even after years of trying, I still can't make out why anyone would say that?!?

"She is the only woman that I ever loved. When I went to jail she cleaned out my bank account and dissapeared but she is going to come crawling back someday"
When I heard that one I just wanted to cry. How far from reality was this guy???

"Put the gun down and no one gets hurt"
