Just Watching

I sometimes stop myself from publishing blogs , as i feel that they have no purpose, i don't see of what interest they are, even after i have written them, so go on to delete. For example, the other day i was 7th in line for the car wash , and whilst waiting i found myself embroiled in my favorite pastime of people watching. The first car that caught my eye was a family saloon, which clearly needed to be in the queue behind me, and was squished inside with children, (though i thought they all needed their own seat) and when the front passenger door opened out fell the rubbish, blowing over the forecourt, didn't stare though that's hard for me as i don't do discreet.

My eyes then were dragged over to the woman getting out of a rather battered Volvo, and who either is that eccentric she doesn't care, or got dressed in the dark. for as she stepped out of the car i literally did Laugh Out Loud, she had a full length fur coat on with Adidas trakkies, purple sox and silver dancing shoes with a 3" heel, she had on a lime green hat and white sunglasses, this lady must of been in her late 50's, but the loveliest thing was she had a great smile and i almost wished i lived in her head for a hour or so.

Moving up the queue, makes me frown in wonder , and i now wish i had been paying attention to what was in front of me, as the car in the car wash didn't have a driver , No he was standing at the side of the car wash watching his car being washed, i just wish i he'd seen him getting out of the car before the sprinklers started, as you cannot drive forward until you have punched in the number.

I then sat and started to listen to the radio, and thought about life in a poignant way , i saw a man on the path across the road, nervously checking his watch, Who was he meeting? Where did he have to be ? He then answers his phone and turns and ran off in the opposite direction , I hope his day turned out OK.

I was almost my turn and i could see two carers from 'The Home' trying to coax a lady in her dressing gown and slippers to go back inside, and by the hand gestures a cup of tea was on offer.

This made me think without CCTV and Big Brother, you are not often alone , and there will be someone watching , not with judgement , or distaste, but with human interest, so beware next time you have your finger up your nose , someone is watching.

  1. Wow, that's quite an exciting car wash. The flamboyantly dressed lady sounds fun.

  2. Very funny and actually thought provoking post really. If you do stop and look around at the world around you , you can learn all kinds of things or at the very least, you can laugh.

    The only thing I didn't understand was the first sentence and the connection to the rest of the post? Was it that you were going to erase this post to? Sometimes making people laugh is enough of a reason to write something. :-)
