Overheard and Obsessions: July 28, 2017


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 I spread my legs I can get my body down further.”

“To each their own though. Whatever floats your boat, and any other cliché where I can sound less judgmental.”

“Fly porn.”

“I never understood the lyrics to this song. I mean, what the hell is a safety dance anyway?”

“I have run 60 miles for one of these.” – overheard at the Freezy Pop station during the Door County Triathlon

“You guys are chillin’ like villains. Hey, wait, you’re not getting back into villainy, are you?”

“Let’s go see if we can find you a father.”



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.
