Coffee People Watching

Coffee People

This lady sat down across the room from me and was great to sketch– profile, a cool bun-thingy going on with her hair, didn’t move but when she typed it sounded like a “Lord of the Dance” production.

One of my hobbies is to people watch when I’m at an airport. This is better than the zoo! Here, I sit, and they walk past me. I never sit at my assigned gate either. Like a sniper, I sit back at a distance. Watching. Waiting. On my recent trip, I noticed people generally exit the aircraft and find a bathroom. I’m usually in this group, too. The other thing people do is look for an outlet to recharge their devices.  You can see them coming, walking toward a “Power Port” with so much hope on their faces only to be denied by a cluster of other devices…These are almost always full with a waiting line. The devices reminded me of those little green martians on Toy Story that were mesmerized by “The Claaaaw”. The devices would gather around the power ports, gazing up at “the source of life” in awe and bewilderment, no doubt waiting to go on facebook to reveal some earth shattering news like, “just landed” or “just went to the bathroom”…I’m not in this group as I am not on facebook nor do I want to be. As I was people watching, I saw something rare and exotic. Two people actually talking in conversation face to face without checking their phones every 17 seconds. Fascinating.
