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?

“If you say ‘no’ all the time, people expect it. Then you’re good.”

“He’s only 10 weeks old. I’m sure he doesn’t even know how to be pissed.”

“I’d rather stick a hatchet in his head than invite him to Thanksgiving.”

“I’m full of ideas, with no effin’ outlet here!”

“I weigh 220 pounds. I can’t just put on slippers and glide around the house to keep from scaring the cats.”

“I thought you were going to say yoga pants and UGGs.”

“Falling in love drives me nutso.”

“Let’s start a “Cool Hair ‘Eff Off” campaign to get creepers and socially awkward heavy breathers to stop touching people-with-cool-hair’s hair.”

“82 black t-shirts, 5 with sleeves. I live in the wrong climate.”


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.
