library [draft]

I like to listen into other people’s conversations. I know its extremely invasive and impolite, but I do it anyways. I stare at the speaker who is giving his/her diatribe or monologue, and I stare at them straight in the eye. When they notice, I quickly look down but not in a timid way. I’m not ashamed. I don’t revert my sight with my eyes are saying: sorry I wasn’t listening. I revert my sight saying: continue, I understand, I want to keep listening. Please keep speaking.
