quirks

saw a lady with her groceries going home, her left hand on her cheek, the body a bit bent in the process...have seen her before, same hand on same cheek as today...
we made eye contact and she smiled I think, couldnt see her face, eclipsed by the hand on one cheek. I wonder why its there.
A physiological condition or a nervous tic?

Reminded me of the man I saw years ago in a bus in denver, whispering to someone on the side through a hand cupped to his mouth...telling secrets...to someone the others can't see...a friend, maybe.

yes, they are! but I do realize that they could also be bits that the owners are not very proud of, but have to live with...which is a sobering thought!
