Observing People cont'd

Its interesting to watch people. You know the ones who command your attention? There's something about them. Its unfortunate there are so few of those people around. So many just move through life without making any real impact. They seem to exist rather than truly live and love life. I came across a guy a few weeks who I responded to in such a primal way, it threw me off my game. I'm a pretty self confident person most of the time. Normally I would think nothing of checking the person out and not care whether they knew or not. This guy ... OMG he was ... well ... primal. He had this raw sexual energy about him that made me ask the owner who he was. I've known the owner of the butcher shop (meat market ... what an appropriate place for him to be). He knows I'm a little off the wall.

The guy is a bodybuilder (not surprising) and I have such a weakness for tall, muscular men. And if they're bald and black even better .... but they intimidate me a little, but I kinda like that. By the way ... Barry knows about this guy, knows my reaction and is OK with it. The funny thing is, the guy was dressed in a tshirt and overalls that were dirty (he must work with his hands which is part of the appeal) but there was still this presence about him.

So back to my original point. There's a couple I see on the train every morning. Very attractive couple - he's dark haired, she has a blonde main. They're both in good shape but there's something about them that has always caught my eye.

Tonight Barry and I were at our local Sobey's when Barry just about tripped over his tongue LOL.  There was this stunning, and I mean stunning woman.  She was at least part Asian but I've never seen anyone with her kind of features before.  You couldn't really tell what her background was.  She had a nice figure, nothing spectacular but her face more than made up for it.  She must be so used to people staring.
I tend to have a somewhat permant evil little grin on my face. I usually have music on and unlike most people, I've usually got my head and foot going with it. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not.

The people I often wonder about are the ones who seem to want to be almost invisible. Between the way they walk, the way they carry themselves, the way they dress. It all seems to scream "don't look at me". I wonder what's going on in their lives ... Are they sick? Is a loved one ill? Are they going through a divorce? Are they just simply tired and preoccupied with all the commitments that life brings. I don't know why we seem to feel this need to over commit ourselves. But that's a topic for another post.


  1. This is a great series ~ in university some friends and I would create stories around people we saw in parks or at local enteries. It was often interesting the scenarios we would create and wondered how accurate we were. .. HHL
