Overheard and Obsessions: Sept. 15, 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 really think some of this is blood.”

“I struggled just a little hauling his butt through 300 feet of pea gravel.”

“I’m sorry, Fridays, for seeming like I didn’t appreciate you as much June through August.”

“I think he’s going to go up in a puff of smoke on his own.”

“She’s got these beady little eyes, like a mole.”

“The starving artist expo.”

“Just take a few minutes everyday to look at his hair.”

“The pickle-faced one.”


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.
