Crazy, nutty times. A lot of wacky, edgy, out-there behavior. Okay, no, I can't sugar-coat this. It was very sedate. Lot of people reading, not looking up. I give people extra points if they look up. If you're at a coffee shop, you shouldn't be so intent on reading that you don't look up. To me, it's part of the coffee shop contract. If you want to concentrate on reading to the exclusion of all else, then just stay home and read. I always look up. And if who I look up at makes eye contact, I give that little momentary grimace-smile that's polite without being creepy. It's the least I can do.
