Us & Them

Yesterday morning, as I was leaving Grand Central Station headed for work I bypassed a couple standing at the base of the ramp that herds foot traffic up and onto the street. They were young and the man was passionately explaining himself, talking with his hands and so on. The woman stood beside him, but perpendicular to the direction he was facing. Her eyes were glazed over and she wasn't reacting to anything the man was saying. I shook my head as I passed, thinking, that poor brother needs to stop. I'm sure the woman with him heard every word he said, but she looked like could care less. Women are pros at that detached stance. Men should be better about reading it and saving their breath until a later time, a better time or just saving their breath.
