Overheard and Obsessions: July 8, 2016


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?


“The only way I know the day is by looking at my pill box.”


“Camping is a lot more fun when you’re good at it.”


“So you thought putting that leather chair against the wall when you moved it would prevent me from noticing the huge rip in the back, eh? I’m onto you.”


“It’s ok, you don’t have to wear clothes to get into this place!”


“Do you think this firewood just grows on trees?”


“So would a ridge also be known as a ravine?”


“Is this what they used to wear before they had clothes?”



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.
