Overheard and Obsessions: Feb. 16, 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?

“I just always think you’re being sarcastic. Is that alright?”

“He would make a great foghorn.”

“He’s got booger rags in there, I’m not digging.”

“It’s Colonial for ‘skank.’”

“I don’t know about high fashion, but I like grandpa.”


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.
