No one is judging you. No one really gives a shit. They're all too preoccupied with themselves to have much energy left over with which to feel one way or the other about you. I tell you this because I know. Because I talk to them. I ask leading, topical questions. I solicit information. And they're all so full of myopic, self-glorifying shit it's a wonder they don't sprout buttercups. So relax. Have a drink. Have SEVERAL. Ignore the prying eyes. They're just looking for newly distorted reflections of themselves. There's nothing to fear, at least not from predictable sources.
