Overheard and Obsessions: July 7, 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?

“I took off my dad socks and put on plain white socks.”

My hands are clean, I just licked them.”

It’s so hard to draw a dinosaur when you’re supposed to be walking…”

Brian, do you have the big scissors?

“Donkeys don’t have horns.”

“You’re a Gertrude!”

“I skimmed through her clothes. That’s normal, that’s what everyone does when they house sit.”

“If we both die, we’re splitting everything.”

“If a bear doesn’t kill you tonight, I’ll be the happiest man alive.”


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.
