Overheard and Obsessions: Oct. 27, 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? 

“I saw somebody wearing a garbage bag less than a week ago.”

“[She] has my neighbor pig’s sister.”

“It’s like Kenny G reincarnated as Kenny G!”

“Does my hair look missing?”

“I’d like to see Uranus when we leave the Tap tonight. Will you show me where it is?”

“‘Cause when else am I ever gonna get to touch a whale sperm?”

“Umbrellas are too cool for me.”


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.
