Overheard & Obsessions: August 24, 2018


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 think it’s because of all the boiled meats?”

“Stop making out with people. Let’s go eat nachos.”

“Do you experience phantom odors?”

“There’s some kind of malice and it’s stirring in the east.”



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.
