HAVE YOU EVER BEEN LOST IN THOUGHT BUT YOUR GAZE WAS FIXED ON SOMEBODY OR SOMETHING?
When I was in my third year at the University, a lady accosted me, asking to know why I was staring at her breast. That was one of the most awkward moments of my life. I was dumbstruck. I just stood still trying to fathom what she was insinuating. She was wearing a gown with a plunging neckline and parts of her breast were exposed but I had no idea I was staring at her.
I tried to explain to her that I wasn’t staring but my explanations fell on deaf ears and she created quite a scene.
A busty lady in the kind of dress she was wearing would definitely be the cynosure of all eyes but I didn’t stare at her. What happened was that I had my eyes in a particular direction while a million thoughts raced through my mind. The direction I had my eyes was her breast.
I vehemently denied that I was staring at her boobs but those around attested to the fact she had politely told me to stop staring at her and that she only blew a fuse because I refused to avert my gaze. I just paid my bills( the drama ensued at an eatery) and left.
I don’t know if it only happens to me but there are days(happens once in a blue moon) when I would fix my eyes in a particular direction but I’d be completely oblivious of what is happening around me because I am lost in thoughts. Someone would greet me but I won’t respond because my mind is far away. Does anyone have the same experience or is it just me?
