I'm Stealing That! (or Careful, or you'll end up in my novel*)

*With apologies to whoever originally put that on a sweatshirt.

Tip of the day: You can pre-order Miss Delighted to Debut's debut here! Only one month til release time!

Here's some real life gems that I heard recently that I have to incorporate into a novel:

1) A waitress had to cut-off two customers after they get their fifth free pasta entree refill, and then the eaters got mad bc they claimed they didn't get their money's worth.

2) A teen boy came home smelling of beer, puke, and urine after a party and convinced his mom that the reason she saw him sleepwalking to the dresser and peeing in it was because he was innocently slipped a drug into his non-alcoholic beverage while hanging with a boy from the church; his mom believed it bc she wanted to.

3) A crazy mom who took her 12-year-old kid to a school quiz bowl and when another kid showed up to compete, the mom said to the other boy, "You're here? I didn't know you were smart."

What have you heard lately that is begging to be included in a story?
