There are bird watchers, deal watchers, perv watchers, dolphin watchers, all sorts of watchers out there. I am a people watcher.
That's why I enjoy travelling by bus :). I get to watch all sorts of people. And I mean ALL sorts! My bus ride to the office today was consumed by that entirely.
I watch people's shoes, their clothes, their demeanour, their expressions, their gait, anything out there that is on display. I watch them talk to others or talk on the phone. Once in a while, I see those who talk to themselves too. I watch the solitary folks as well as those that move in flocks.
People fascinate me.
Mind you, I am quite allergic to people. But that's another story.
People watching works like therapy for me. I see bits of myself in others, just like I sometimes see bits of others in me.
The rest of my therapy consists of a combination of chocolate, all sorts of carbs, my bed, fruits, some Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, walking and Rayyaan.
I guess each one of us has his/her own "thing". People watching works great for me! It's amusing, enlightening, readily available and best of all.........FREE. Ha!
