Overheard and Obsessions: June 16, 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?

“Do you have gluten-free, soy-free soy sauce?”

What does Irish Spring smell like? Guinness and ginger.

I feel bad about myself when I try to put my hair half up and realize the guys on LoTR do a better job than me.

“If you were homeless you’d target me too.”

I was so excited last night, I couldn’t sleep. I was just so excited to come up to Door County!”

“They’re not your friends. They’re just weird, random people.”

“It’s just The Goonies, except with aliens instead of pirates.”


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.
