Overheard Conversation

You may recall that I have a "thing" about overheard conversation.

Leaving Wal-mart tonight I heard the following:

"So, it is just the oral fixation thing?"

The older woman replied to the 20 something who asked the question...

"No. Thank you, Mr. Freud."

I thought to myself, I wonder if Mr. Piaget and Mr. Erikson would be upset that their names are never mentioned when stages of development arise in conversation. Maybe they'd just be happy their names are not associated with cigars and what they may or may not mean.
