As time went on, people succumed to discomfort and solitude. There was squirming, half smiles, and in some cases, even an attempt at breaking the ice without getting too personal. Anonymity is very important you know.

Today was like a first date – awkward, but intriguing. I’m secretly hoping for a second date. Maybe I will even be able to fulfill my civic duty…
