Overheard and Obsessions: Mar. 25, 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?


“Anyone ever been stuck in a roomful of philosophizing jocks? I just was.”


“The hairy chest caught me by surprise. You don’t see that too often!”


“Living the dream. Just wish it were mine.”


“Even when you’re picking your nose, you are like a Farrah Fawcett poster to me.”


“People bead like nuts!”


“I thought you finally figured out that you were adopted…oh, wait, nevermind.”


“Goodbye, bracket.”



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.
