Overheard and Obsessions: April 15, 2016

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?


“The winos came out in full force!”


“I think I just word vomited.”


“Inevitability she’ll fill a ‘free lip pump with 10 procedures’ card.”


“The world needs more dirndls.”


“Yeah that was a crazy night. I woke up in jail with two different sneakers on, and neither of them were mine.”


“The 4 o’clock beer isn’t so bad. It’s the 2 o’clock beer that got me.”


“Nobody goes the last Saturday. It’s always too crowded.”


“I miss you being naked under a vine!”



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.
