When you ipod and looking out the window ceases to work
On the bus today, I attempted to give my seat to 2 different people...and they REFUSED. Eh? What? This is an old man and someone using a tongkat okay. Not some 40 year old woman insulted by my misjudgement of her age. I found that pretty darn weird. To think you try to do something nice and people reject it. Ngeh. Finally the third person accepted my offer and guess what? She was a 40-45 year old woman in tights and sneakers. *rolls eyes*
I also had to tolerate the sight of a couple kissing in the bus today. They weren't making out or anything. To normal people, or perhaps to those who watch too many movies, its quite sweet. I guess to some extent it is but I just feel uncomfortable when I watch people smooch in public. I feel like I'm invading their privacy or Im committing voyeurism. Of course if they have the guts to do it in public then I shouldn't feel that way. But I just do. And its way worse when you can HEAR them kissing. Goddamit, all that slurping, bleargh. Don't get me wrong, Im not against kissing and being lovey dovey. I just dont want to SEE it or HEAR it. Please. Spare me your loved up sessions.
One last thing I saw on the bus. Three siblings were sitting next to each other. I assumed they were related because they had the same eyes and nose and they kept trying to irritate each other. The 2 elder ones were girls, one being the eldest, was the most authoritive and the second was more quiet and feminine. The youngest was a boy who of course did most of the irritating. Hehe. Reminds me of a certain someone back home, down to his white board shorts and cheeky grin. The moment I saw them I felt that familiar wave of homesickness wash over me. I got over it as soon as I noticed the sneakers on the 40 year old woman.
This is what happens when you ride the bus alone without a book. Every small thing is magnified and dramatised. Or maybe its just me. Haha.
