Overheards & Obessions

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?

“It doesn’t look jiggly. That’s usually how I tell.”

“I’ve never known a homeless person before.”

“If it hit my jeggings it would have gone straight through.”

“Number one he’s smoking a cigarette, number two he’s holding a gun, and number three he’s got a mustache.”

“There’s too many gross verbs being used right now.”

“He lubed his shoulder with Rogaine.”

“He’s addicted to sadness.”

“All my friends went to college so I went to Oklahoma.”

“I’m giving up asking my wife’s permission for Lent.”

“I suck so bad at darts, I had to buy a bar just to get on the team.”

“I’m going to be among Canadians…I think.”

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.

“I love making fun of bad celebrity looks on the red carpet! It might be more fun for me than actually watching the Oscar nominated movies. How can they make such bad decisions on what to wear when they pay people huge amounts of money so that they look good?!?” ~ Anonymous

“My new breakfast obsession is plopping a big ol’ spoonful of peanut butter into my oatmeal. I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to plain old oats again!” ~ Anonymous

“Pinning is my new obsession! I could spend hours – yes, multiple, in-a-row hours – a day on Pinterest.” ~ Anonymous
