 do you ever see someone in some quiet intimate moment and
 suddenly love them so desperately you feel like you're dying
 air
 in
 Us
 es

 I love seeing grown humans setting about little creative tasks out of
 boredom and then looking quietly pleased with themselves, like
 maybe a middle-aged woman on her train home from work manages
 to make a tower out of empty coffee creamers and gazes at it proudly
 for a few seconds
 I love seeing other people make the overblown OOPS I FORGOT
 SOMETHING performance for no-one that most of us do when we
 have to turn around in the middle of the pavement.

 when someone is standing in line and they don't quite dance to the
 music playing, but you can SEE their head bop and them mouthing
 the words
 when someone thinks no one's paying attention and they sing-talk
 themselves thru a task
 when they laugh or try to hide a laugh when looking at their phone
 elodieunderglass
 when someone does the thing where they enter another space
 (such as a supermarket aisle) striding with total purpose, then
 suddenly forget what they're doing/looking for, and stop there looking
 blank for a millisecond while they reboot.
 - when people are looking for scissors, in their home or in a store
 and they make the scissors gesture with their non-dominant hand as
 an aid to remind them what they're doing
 when automatic social interactions glitch, like when you tell a waiter
 that you hope he enjoys his food too, or tell the stranger on the
 phone that you love them
