Dec. 29, 2017: Overheards & Obsessions


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“It’s my mission in life:  find the Nickelback of Korea.”

“No, you cannot buy a squirrel.”

“My sneeze sounds prettier than yours.”

“Nobody’s going to hurt you on the bus. You might see some weirdos, but…”

“Let’s do it! Yoga pants party!”

“They’re rustic hoity-toity.”

“It’s nice to see you with a lip.”

“I’m hugging people into my paella.”

“Sweaty but not smelly.”



Is there anything you can’t stop thinking about, listening to, watching, eating, or drinking? Obsessions are meant to be your of-the-moment fixation.
