We're Hoping for a Muppet Baby

Middle aged female client: You aren't going to find out the sex? How are you going to know what color to paint the nursery or what kind of baby clothes to get?
Pregnant 30-something hair stylist: Oh, please, like it matters what colors I choose. People aren't going to be wondering if it's a girl or a boy, anyway; they're going to wonder if it's an animal or a baby. http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/overheardinminneapolis/~3/366035301/dear-penthouse.html Overheard by: jenc17

Way to Ruin the Moment

Middle-aged woman: My wedding ring from my first marriage has new meaning now.
Friend: What's that?
Middle-aged woman: When I lost all that weight and it didn't fit anymore, I took it as a sign to divorce the bastard and marry Jesus Christ.

20-something girl on cell: I had the malpractice ball this last weekend. It was in the Weisman Museum… kind of lame, not a lot of space. (pause) But I didn't bring a flask this year, so it was a little conservative, definitely a limited amount of alcohol. (pause) Are you going home for Passover? (pause) Oh my, are you converting? (pause) Yeah, I want to know what this whole Jerry Springer photo thing is all about. http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/overheardinminneapolis/~3/267290968/do-you-really.html Overheard by: burrhead

Janine Began to Regret Taking the Housekeeping Job at the Nunnery

Hot girl on cell: Um, why were your boxers in the bathroom trash can this morning? Okay, well, from now on throw them away in the dumpster and maybe, I don't know, wipe before you decide to do lunges? http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/overheardinminneapolis/~3/365149695/nothing-i-could-know-about-this-guy-would-redeem-him.html Overheard by: you could do better
