Happy New Year!

I'll be traveling over the next few days, so no new updates until Tuesday. If you drive, don't drink, and if you drink, make sure you remember funny conversations.

Until then, have a Happy New Year!

Back to overheard conversations!

P.S. Bears fans: you may want to check these out. Just in time for the Packers game! GRAR!
