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?

“What’s the deal with her mascara?”

“How do you draw a smiley?”

“Whenever I wake up after 10 am, I’m like, ‘Man, what are you doing with your life?!’”

“I can’t see me because I am me…but I can see behind me.”

“You smell like sunscreen. I love you.”

“Why, as soon as we start getting nicer weather, do people insist on shutting themselves in and relying on a loud, obnoxious, energy sucking, neighbor-pissing-offing crap like that?!”


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.
