I was being observed tonight. You ever have that feeling? Someone was watching me-- studying me. I don't know who she was, but she was older, maybe slightly less than my mom's age. I caught her looking at me several times. But the look in her eyes wasn't the usual 'Christ, look at THAT freak!' Rather, it was a look of knowing... like the look you see in people's eyes when they look at baby pictures of their loved ones. A look that says, 'I know how this one is going to turn out.'
That's the vibe I got. So, of course, I can only assume that she was a time traveler from the future. Someone I know now (maybe one of you) come back to study this important transitional period in my life.
