Pity gives way to wariness
I suppose one can see why my fellow passengers are a little suspicious.
I'm clearly not a fashion student or member of a band - in which case the Mo could be seen as a conscious statement. But nor do I look completely out of touch with contemporary design.
As I sit on the train, working on my MacBook and listening to my iPhone, I've begun to notice the look of pity changing.
People are now wary. "He must know how odd he looks," they think, "yet he remains completely serious."
And wariness seems to be a licence to stare...
