Weekend Challenge: Overheard, and Three Things

Hi, all - I am back with this weekend's challenge! Let me know that you're in, and I'll deliver you two prompts:
- A set of three random things
- An 'overheard' sentence or phrase - things I've overheard while walking around my city.

You can use the things together or separately- can pair them with the overheard phrase or sentence, or use it separately. Just write 200 words or create some art by Thursday 11pEastern, and I'll be glad to make you some icons or put words on a WIP of mine.

Happy weekend!
