Overheard and Obsessions: Feb. 10, 2017


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?

“That’s why I dumped and ran.”

“One of my worst fears is accidentally eating a pot brownie.”

“Probably good the baby doesn’t have his genes. They wouldn’t fit since she’s a baby and he’s an adult.”

“Is that your sugar daddy or your actual dad?”

“I’m already dragging [butt] just thinking about going back to work tomorrow.”

“I didn’t know that F-150s were amphibious now.”



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.

The new Netflix series Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Excellent theme music (is that Lemony Snicket on accordion?) Great cast. Beautifully – sometimes breathtakingly – shot. And plenty of word play, as expected from teleplay writer David Handler.
