Overheards, Obsessions, and Pet Peeves

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?

“I could deal with a little nakedness, but I feel like there would be a lot.”

“I love peanuts because they taste just like peanut butter!”

“If there’s a bi-partisan issue, it’s beer.”

“I’m a hooker with a heart of gold.”

“I know you enjoy random noises.”

“Horses crap really big

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.

“The Cobb Salad at the Wild Tomato. All those wood fire-roasted vegetables, fresh Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, topped with some balsamic vinaigrette just rock my world. Add a juicy local chicken breast for the real deal. It’s hard to believe a salad could bring such happiness, but it does.”

“Coffee – maybe that’s more of an addiction, but I need it every day!”
