Overheard and Obsessions: Nov. 18, 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 want to be an old man when I grow up.”


“You know, I probably would’ve dated you sooner if you had a puppy.”


“Laughter is the best medicine. Well, next to alcohol.”


“Great answer. I’m guessing. I don’t have the time to read it, but I’m impressed. Paragraphs, a numbered list. So organized.”


“Get back to quipping. We need more quips.”


“I spent as little time with the folks as possible this weekend. Only went over because of the dog. The chocolate lab is non-partisan.”


“I watched that [Packers] game yesterday and thought I was watching a Bears game!”


“It’s going be a long four years of avoiding family.”



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.
