Overheard and Obsessions: May 6, 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?


“I can’t ask him to stop breathing, right?”


“That’s Barry and his mullet, playing the piano. Trying to get the feeling again.”


“Well stop making miniature Chinese finger traps then.”


“Just listening to it, I’m getting a Rocky Mountain high. Better go smoke.”


“I knew you would be a controlling wife and ruin all the fun!”


“I like that they are bringing all the good shows back. Probably cause everything since the 90’s has been [crap].”


“I just realized that I have a much higher chance than the average person of being murdered due to mistaken identity because of you.”



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.
