Overheard and Obsessions: Dec. 30, 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?


“How did the mice even get up the pole? Are they strippers?”


“Looks like a dog toy holocaust down there!”


“Can I get worker’s comp for snapping my fingers too much at the holiday party?”


“You don’t win friends with salad!”


“It’s kind of weird feeling nipples on a puppy.”


“We are still obeying God even though we are eating the China food.”


“Are you wearing perfume or is that the poncho?”



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.
