overheard in chicago

The Family just returned from a three-day jaunt to the Windy City. We don’t often take mini-vacations, because:

  1. We like our own mini-rooms, and need not pay a small fortune to borrow the mini-room of another. Which brings me to…
  2. The Family is cheap;
  3. We love Our Town; and
  4. Where do people find the time? Seriously.

The result of this little trip was more than a few soundbites that brought smiles to our faces and hearty laughter to our bellies. As such, I am declaring this overheard in chicago week on the book of alice.

I hope you enjoy.

    • Thanks, Mimi. Truth be told, I seriously considered the balloons theme, but decided it might not be quite snarky enough. Given that this blog is run through the power of strategically-placed notebooks, this one feels right. For now.

      • Everything can change..and honestly? I know you look for a little snarkiness, but that isn’t one of the adjectives that come to mind when I think of the Kidling or her stories..

        • It certainly isn’t the first I use to describe her to folks who have never met her (brilliant, hilarious, amazing are common, though). That said, the snark always me giggle.
