Overheard and Obsessions: Dec. 9, 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?

“Well, he bought a bride ya know.”


“Now that I’ve touched them all, enjoy.”

“It was rated PG-13 and had people ‘doing it’ every 10 minutes. What’s wrong with Europeans?!”


“Dark humor is a wonderful acquired taste.”
