Overheard and Obsessions: Oct. 28, 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?


“If I’m gonna be called ugly, I’d rather it be spelled ugleigh.”


“I went to Mali because it was the only way I could see Timbuktu.”


“I can be creepy in my big self.”


“I coughed in beat so it doesn’t matter.”


“I am not a Weezer fan. They sound like whiny little turds to me. I want to destroy all of their sweaters.”


“Pizza does not cure insomnia.”


“Homecoming: feels so good in the moment, feels so terrible in the morning.”



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.
