Overheard and Obsessions: March 24, 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?

“Speaking of shaking things and having unintended consequences…”

“I’ve interviewed him twice. It’s like talking to a skunk.”

“You can only get so much wiggle with your flag.”

“If I’m not cruisin’ for babes, I’m not looking at the hand!”

“You should get some little boingies on top of your head! You know what I’m talkin’ about.”

“I don’t want to go when the church people do. They’ve got good perfume on. I’m just an old, smelly country bumpkin.”



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.
