When I people-watch on my way to work every morning...

I think it's like:

They think it's like:

It's actually like:


  1. Hehe spot on. I love people-watching too, and also I try to deduce things about people (like Sherlock Holmes) from little details and that just results in me staring really hard at a person's face/back/ass and then they just stare at me as if I was a pervert *sniff* I'm not a pervert!! D: I just want to practice the art of deduction, is that too much to ask?

    1. Haha, I know! I always end up looking at their bits (I am such an adult, calling them bits.) I just stare at the things I shouldn't stare at, mostly because I want to see what clothes they wear, how they wear them, and figure out how they see themselves. I live in New York too, so there is a whole mixture of people, and they're really hard not to stare at. I've recently resorted to looking at their reflections in the subway windows. Because I'm super not subtle.

      Some people I know draw people on the train. Like, not only watch them, but sketch their likenesses on paper. Least subtle train activity ever, I can tell you.
