Can We Talk?

Question …

Today’s question is …

If you could be a fly on the wall anywhere and at any time in history …

I’d like to see what goes on in the doctors’ lives that I work with.

What are they like when they’re not working? What sort of personalities do they have? How do they interact with their spouses? With their children?

I love to watch people. I love to listen to conversations. I love to try and read between the lines and study body language and listen to what’s NOT being said.

In short, I’m nosy. I’m one of those people who like to sit in the corner at parties and watch what’s going on around me, without actually participating.

I’d like the ability to simply follow someone interesting home – then perch, unseen, and watch them go about their daily lives. What makes them tick? What are they passionate about? What are the people in their lives like?

I don’t really like to interact with people, even though I do it on a daily basis and can trick people into thinking that I LIKE speaking with them, or SEEM like I’m really listening when in fact, I’m counting the minutes until I can gracefully excuse myself from the conversation, but I do enjoy watching people.

I just wish I could do more of it and not appear suspicious.

I swear I’m not as creepy as I sound.
