Overheard and Obsessions: March 1, 2019


Are there tidbits 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?

“I don’t want to get rid of the sensation of eating.”

“There’s going to be a lot of good cosmic energy coming next week.”

“Is that code for: ‘I’m uncomfortable with this conversation?’”

“I know you came here to see my pretty face, but would you like a drink while you look at it?”

“You’ve won a lot of meat, haven’t you?”

“Well, her crazy train is coming to a halt.”

“I have a lot of Googling to do today.”


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.
