    Do you like to people watch?

    I can sit for hours just watching random people do random things...because every now and then you can catch something truly astonishing and utterly hilarious. People are crazy...and here for our amusement.

      Isn’t it though…I personally love it…a great way to pass the time while you’re waiting around.

    Are you kidding? What kind of a question is that? Of course I like to watch people! I use other people as a gauge for my own sanity! :-0

      Very good point my friend...watching the crazies go by definitely does help me feel sane.

      It can be a dangerous game to play though. I remember as a kid being in a court room and there was a man furiously talking to his shoe. My brother and I giggled and my father turned to us and sternly said "Stop, he could snap and hurt you" I stopped!

      Been there…done that. It can be dangerous…but it is also so much fun…so you have to take the good with the bad.

      Ooh, ooh, here's one; what about when you feel like someone is looking at you and so you look up at them just as they are turning their head toward you and then it looks like you're looking at them. Repeat process like 4 times, til feel stupid?

      Yeah I've done that too...I always want to run and hide afterwards but I don't, I stand my ground.

      I almost want to say, "Hey fahker, just so you know, I'm looking at you looking at me, so let us not be confused here!" I hate when someone thinks I'm checking them out when I'm not! Arghhh. he he :-)

      I know what you mean...they obviously know you're looking at them...and they obviously know they are not looking at you...so why not save you some embarrassment and let you know.

      I know you’ve been checking me out…I just know it…I saw you staring.

    Always! Going to the mall is highly entertaining. But one of the best places to people watch is downtown. You see all kinds of weird actions there. Also observing individuals who coupon is really intimidating. That might as well be their job!

      I must agree with you about the mall…that place is full of all sorts of lunatics…especially around the holidays. Downtown is too…but more so in the big cities…Tampa doesn’t really have that much of a downtown.

      I used to live in Tampa. Very beautiful area. Try Orlando, you'll see more there.

      Tampa is alright...they just don't know what they want to be yet...they are still trying to come into their own.

    Yes it is a great think to do, when you have nothing else to do.  makes me think of all the events going on  all the time,  all over the world, in every city.
