Overheard & Obsessions: Nov. 16, 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?

“Don’t be like Isadora Duncan – care about your safety.”

“It looks like she ran into a turkey farm by accident.”

“You wanna be hygge.”

“I’ve already been bingeing the Hallmark Christmas movies.”  “How are those around you dealing with that?”

“If these were implants they would have exploded.”

“I can’t take that appointment, I have to attend a cat euthanasia.”



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.
