Overheard and Obsessions: Sept. 16-23, 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?


“We all miss you. No one drunk-wears a lampshade better.”


“I don’t like anything above 70 degrees. That’s why I live in Baileys Harbor!”


“It feels like somebody injected me with stupid!”


“I was gonna wear the matching coconut underwear for turkey day.”


“Is this the line for people who don’t wait in lines?”


“But in 6th grade you didn’t forward that chain email so you’re cursed to be alone forever!”


“Door County took my innocence.”



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.
