Overheards and Obsessions: Jan. 18, 2019


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 draw the line at smarter, taller people.”

“It’s just a different kind of fast food, BO stink.”

“The last thing I would think is, ‘Let me whip out this salad here.’”

“This is not the place for ankle scarves.”

“There’s all kinds of stuff flying around in the air in a locker room.”

“Oh, when acronyms backfire.”

“There’s still time for eggs.”


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.
