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?

“We will have to manually add all our contacts so it’s a good thing we don’t have many friends.”

“So I am a Polock kid. People get me in Wisconsin, but everywhere else they think I am crazy.”

“I want you to be buried in my yard, if that’s legal.”

“It’s hard to eat your friends!”

“That’s my way of doing things. I stand up for myself, then have a panic attack in fear of retaliation.”

“I think he confused sexy with sweaty.”

“Don’t all suits have pants?”

“A clean-shaven man is never completely dressed.”

“It gives me the shakes, and not in a good way.”

“I’m not looking for something that needs a window, although I like the fact that it has a transmission.”


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.

Pear ciders.

Picking out seeds for my garden!
