Overheard and Obsessions: March 9, 2018


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?

“Trousers are the funny version of pants.”

“I have long femurs.”

“I’m going with the crackle these days.”

“Opening your legs at normal leg-width would be preferable.”

“The legs of a wine are like the legs of a woman:  they’re pretty to look at but they tell you nothing of her character.”

“This smells like a costume.”

“I have fire escapes I can hide in if it gets too much.”


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.
