Overheard and Obsessions: Jan. 19, 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?

“His children were way better looking than I expected.”

“No, I just wanted to see if you would do it. Dressing up is for nerds.”

“I’m offended by the man boobs.”

“Ah, yes. The wonderfully weird history of people trying to change color.”

“You don’t want to kiss me. I don’t even know you.”

“Hitting on your host’s wife helps to build camaraderie.”

“Everyone would’ve done better as a chubby little pug.”

“Hopefully she gets half his tan in the divorce.”


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.
