Overheards & Obsessions

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?

“You’re almost done! 3.1 miles is like a fart.”

“Does gravity work when the power is out?”

“Can you tell me what time the Three O’clock Parade starts?”

“He’s the nastiest guy!”
“If someone told you he died, you’d say GOOD!”

“Let’s put him in the fish tank and see how he reacts.”

“I need drugs to kill the all the bugs.”

“Some people need to just learn how to keep their nose out of my business. Seriously, if I wanted their snotty opinions over everything I would have handed them a tissue and told them to blow.”

“If you could be a Velociraptor or a Tyrannosaurus Rex, what would you choose?”

“We don’t have cable? That’s OK, I can play angry birds.”

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’m obsessed with the new TV show Revenge on ABC. I love all the drama and deceit!” ~ Anonymous

“I am obsessed with Chobani Greek Yogurt. On sale at the Piggly Wiggly, I grabbed a variety of flavors – pomegranate, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, peach – and discovered this stuff puts Yoplait in the dust, in terms of taste and nutrition.” ~ Sally Slattery

“I’m obsessed with pumpkin seeds. I always forget how much I love them until I roast the first batch. Then I can’t stop eating them until every single last one is gone.” ~ Anonymous

“Aaron Rodgers is the bomb.” ~ The Future Mrs. Rodgers
