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?

“How can you be worried about her when your very own wife is in love with Kenny G?”

“Their relationship is getting saxual.”

“These envelopes are freakin’ lethal! So far no bloody ones are going out, though.”

“Pythagorean theorem – what’s that? I’m no mathemagician!”

“I tried to buy tickets online but ended up somewhere near Janesville.”

“It smells vaguely poopy in here.”

“Josie’s earlobe is like butter.”

“I think the more embarrassing thing is that my girlfriend is barking right now.”

“This baby came in with huge a** cheeks. Face cheeks.”

“Do you know what’s nice about a cloak? It’s like wearing a blanket.”

“The second day after a battle is the worst.”

“So the glass is sharp?”


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.
