Bus Journeys - II

On a sunny day, wake up, bright and early, fresh in the morning. Cleanse yourself in whatever way works for you. Eat well, dress to comfort. Load the mp3 player with a 100 of your favorite tunes, preferably a mixture of metal, rock and even techno. Wear dark, REALLY dark shades. Catch a bus that takes a long circular route. Settle down in the side row way in front. Switch on the player.

Watch as some person boards solo. Watch him/her settle down into a seat. Dark shades are a must now. Stare directly, unabashedly at them. At eye level course...

At first the subject will look away, look outside etc. Then the fists clench, knuckles go white, legs cramp up. The gaze is not returned, but is met with a shy look at the ground. Keep staring. Remember to show NO emotion and yet have a positive, friendly vibe around you. Soon the gaze is returned. If you're lucky, a smile.

What you do after that is your path in life :)
