My desk and computer is nestled into a bay window area, facing outside. Which, of course, means one thing - people watching.
It's pretty easy to be distracted, especially with the varied personalities that come ambling past me.
The other day I saw a familiar commercial actor, moving furniture. I assume he's moved in near me.
Yesterday an extreme case of road rage caused two drivers to stop and scream bloody murder at each other in the middle of the street. Got a bit ugly.
On a regular basis, someone stands outside the neighbour's place screaming nicknames I can't decipher and whistling loudly for an hour straight.
The best is hearing conversations that people have as they pass by me, not realizing they can be heard. Lovers quarrels, curious questions from children, people talking to themselves about how the world sucks - even a guy bragging to his friends about the different ways he cheated on his wife.
One day I'll see something I'm not supposed to.
Remind me to close the blinds.
