guess the fake

i like to eavesdrop, and i keep a journal of odd tidbits i hear between strangers. but i like to make things up, too. so, for the weekword FAKE, here are a few of the funny things i've overheard - but i've also slipped one in here that is totally bogus - something i made up or said to myself.









which one is the fake? i'll draw a name from the ones who guess correctly, and the winner can pick a print from my etsy shop.

other weekword participants this week are: alexandra, aris, cecilia, doug, esti, fruenswerk, jenna, thereza, and valentina. be sure to check out their interpretations over the weekend. thanks for playing - i had fun with this!

p.s. i'll post the winner on sunday!

Garbage truck?

painted fish studio said...

dang, i'm hoping they're all real!

Annie Pazoo said...

I think it's the first one. (Guess logic and reason aren't otherwise appealing to me tonight :-)

Carmen said...

These are great Aimee! I'm guessing the "and I said to myself" is the fake... or one that you said to yourself. :)

FruensWerk2 said...

I think the FAKE one is the top one...HAHAHA...
and I like to listen too...can be so funny...

Bella Sinclair said...

Hahaha! These are all great! It's "Overheard in Artsyville." I'm guessing....I'm guessing...."I don't want to even think about thinking about that." Hahaha!

Was the "Ma'am, shut your piehole" heard in D&D? :)

KB said...

I'm hope it's "Ma'am, just shut your pie hole", although I've really wanted to say that on occasion. So yeah, voting for the last one.

cindy : quaint said...

i love your tags. i'm going to guess since you live in kansas -
'strange things happen in georgia'.

Sharon said...

Wow!! How great. I will guess the Strange things happen in Georgia. Thanx for the fun!! Sharon

Melanie said...

the Dr Pepper one ... just a hunch!

SueBeads said...

Dr. Pepper!

see you there! said...

Feeling Groovy is the fake. Either that or someone has been watching too many old movies.

Darla

Leau said...

I think it has to be the juxtaposition of Ma'am and piehole..just guessing that folks who call other folks ma'am might not be using pie hole too! I love your site, have been lurking for months and then became a steady looker after the Artful Blogging article. Great stuff happens in Kansas!

Hillcrest Cottage said...

the dr. pepper one

jer & suz stuff said...

Dr.Pepper

~Valentina~ said...

*LOVE*LOVE* the tags, and I think the Dr. Pepper one is the 200% fake :)

aimee said...

oh!! you are all making this so fun for me! keep the guesses coming, and don't forget to check the other weekworders' posts - there are some great ones!

daisy janie : scoutie girl said...

cracking up at all of these!!! I'm voting for 'shut your piehole' b/c that's along the lines of your crazy self!!!

what fun!

FruensWerk2 said...

Hey girl I think you choose the next wordfinder...???

That Girl Designs said...

these are all really fun. i guess i'd have to say that the dr. pepper one is the fake?

have a happy weekend!

T.L. Holmes said...

I think it's the one about feeling groovy today...and I think this because I believe you did that one based on your feelings rather than something you heard? hahaha
I don't know??
T :)

Alexandra Hedberg said...

I'm participating!

aimee said...

alexandra is the next weekword finder!

Nina Crittenden said...

My guess is the "groovy" one! Very fun, Aimee, you are so clever! I hope Artful Blogging is still in the bookstores, Nina the shut-in is venturing out to finally get a copy this weekend! :)

CRABCAKES said...

I'm goin' with GrOoVy.

Amanda said...

I'm going to go with... "I'm Feeling Fairly Groovy Today"... I can hear the rest of those floating a coffee shop somewhere... but I can totally hear YOU saying this! :)

jennifernew42@mac.com said...

I vote for groovy.

joanne said...

my vote is for the groovy tag...

i don't think the word groovy is used often enough in conversation... it needs a revival...

:)

BloggingQueen said...

I think it's either "logic and reason" or "Dr. Pepper." Hmmm...

I vote for "Dr. Pepper." There are just too many incidents where you've turned away for just a minute... and then found one of your girls doing something she shouldn't be doing.

aimee said...

we have a lot of votes for groovy, piehole, and dr. pepper, one for the expletive about the garbage truck, none about the dude who sobered up, and a steady sprinkling of the others...hmm... which one of these could it be... by the way, i am loving the reasons behind all your guesses at the fake!

Angie said...

Hi Aimee,

I am delurking- let's see. I think it's the groovy one! That one makes me laugh and I like to think of you saying it to yourself. I wish I could say that to myself! I'd crack me up if I could...

Pat said...

I vote for strange things happen in Georgia. These are wonderful.

S.E.Minegar said...

I'll guess "I don't want to even think about thinking about that."

Redheaded Stepchild said...

I guessing the "feeling groovy" one - no one says that anymore, do they?
I'll shut my piehole, now.

Doug said...

one more vote for garbage truck. -d

suzanne cabrera said...

I'm going with "shut your pie hole"...though I would love to see someone really say this.

This is fun!

nadia said...

I am going with the pie hole. ciao!

Kat said...

Dr. Pepper?

heather smith jones said...

i'm going with the first one.
be/c garbage truck sounds like something a child would shout out in glee at the sight of a garbage truck. the others too i imagine you overhearing.
i can see you thinking of the first one, it's lyrical. :)
