Theatre and life

“We are so different when it comes to how we watch plays”, Jod said. “I enjoy a play by default, until something I don’t like occurs, something to annoy me.”
“Well, obviously, I am indifferent to whatever it is I am watching until there is something I appreciate, something to captivate me.”, I observed in counterpoint.
After a short silence, I added: “It is the same with people: you like them until they do something wrong, if they do. If they do not, you like them, and they like you back. I, again, work the opposite way: I am silent and introverted until someone says or does something to win me, then I open up and — even — light up. No wonder people are usually suspicious towards me, observing me observe them quietly.”

  1. Strangely, I’ve just had this very conversation and claimed the exact same thing as u. And i was accused of being arrogant.

    I still fail to see why.

    p.s. now, that might be a tad arrogant.
