Weird Science: turning a Negative into a Positive
I leave my house early in the morning to take my daughter to school. So I'm usually wearing sweats, no make-up, and if I'm wearing a ponytail, its considered a fancy day.
I live in a Condo in Los Angeles, and there is an older man that always sits on a bench smoking or reading a book near my particular building inside the Complex.
The man is just sitting watching the stream of people walking in and out of their homes which means I have a witness to my disheveled mornings.
I come back from dropping off my 7 year-old, get my gym bag. Go to the gym.
When I get back, I'm sweaty and smelly. And there HE is reading a book, or smoking a cigarette on a bench near my door.
I caught myself grumbling about it. I hate Looky-loues (which according to the Urban Dictionary means: a gawker that stairs at disasters, accidents, or people in the process of misfortune.)
