I didn’t know that word even existed in English :P
Commuting back from the EAC, (good news — got the visa — going to sit the SAT on the 6th!!) I sort of ran into one of my ex-teachers. I never really liked him, but the funny thing is that he stood right before me and I didn’t notice him. He probably saw me instantly; I usually don’t ‘blend in’ with the crowd. So now I had a dilemma: do I admit my mistake and greet him, or do I go on acting as if I hadn’t recognized him?
If I told him ‘Good Afternoon,’ what would he think of me? That I was an arrogant snob who, until now, pretended not to notice him? Would he attempt to start a discussion? I certainly wouldn’t. And what would the fellow passengers think?
If I didn’t give him another glance, what would he think of me? That I was an arrogant snob who pretended not to notice him? [notice anything?]
He put an end to my anguish (that’s too harsh a word) by getting out at a station earlier than mine.
OK, I used the word ‘notice’ 4+1 times in this post — that’s enough.
