Yes before you say it it is not a very good disguise.
This has been brought ot my attention through my own behaviour over the last few months, as you all know i am the Stereotypical Australian Science Geek/ cyclist, that is so prevalent in all the Physcology books. However i can be human, you know flawed and imperfect; now before you jump in an say "Aidan thats a lie perfection is crap next to you" please hear me out.
This story like most stories on this blog is about a girl, not the girl i usually write about, my beautiful, intelligent, all round great chick, wife Stacy, but annother. This girl is/was not a a great girl, she was conceited, and opinionated, and had very little time for the hero of the piece (yours truly) , during the time we shared in high school.
However as life has a sense of humour on my daily walk from the station to work i see this girl, neither of us wishing to renew an aquaintence, we did the only mature and sensible thing , we did the blank.
You know you walk past distracted by something else, not making eye contact, staring on ahead as if it is a total stranger or axe murder walking beside you. So we found away round the unfortable "hey, how is life", "Do you remeber such and such", "Wow your butt got BIGGG" kind of small talk we all know and love. Our lives continued on, nothing to be said.
The plan was working perfectly, except, now we walk past one annother on a daily basis, we are now at the recognise each other as regular passer by stage, so now we blank due to past history and the blank of recognition. Yes ladies and gentlemen, fellow alien observers, Canadians , I have created the double blank.
