when you’re looking at your phone and you notice out of your peripheral a man approaching you as if to talk, the key is that you must not flinch, you must not allow a single hair on your head to move. you must keep typing, keep scrolling. do not attempt to even glance sideways to get a better view of him. trust your gut. stay strong. become one with your phone. do not move your gaze, for they can smell uncertainty, and will speak unprovoked.
