Overheard and Obsessions: Sept. 2, 2016

OVERHEARD

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?

 

“They look like they have people in their basement, but they treat them really well.”

 

“Can you do me a favor and milk and sugar my bread?”

 

“Watch out for the cow!” (“Hey. I have a name.”)

 

“It was good. But too many butts.”

 

“This bus full is tub.”

 

“Say ‘prune’ while she takes the photo. It’s what models do.”

 

OBSESSIONS

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.
