Overheard and Obsessions: Jan. 20, 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?

“Oh my god, what a steal. Look how many Fun Dips I got!”

“Did you say boots or boobs? One letter makes a big difference.”

“Damn cats keep trying to eat all my chips.”

“Kind of funny, in a stalking kind of way.”

“My entire shift everyday is just me daydreaming about petting my dog.”

“The shirt was more boobalicious than I thought it would be.”

“Plus my ears are uneven so they sit slanty.”

“Kids are now charging $25 to shovel walkways. If I had grown up during these times perhaps I would have a savings account.”



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.
