Overheard and 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?

“I didn’t know there were this many people under the age of 40 in Door County!”

“I would like to come back as an oak tree after I die.”

“When The Onion does it, it’s a joke. When I do it, four years probation.”

“I asked her to send me some headshots for my scholarship application, and she sent me four photos – all with me holding a beer. I was like, ‘Mom! I go to a Jesuit college!’”

“Please don’t put the ingredients by your crotch.”



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.
