Window Shopping…

I’ve always been told it’s rude to stop and stare. But we do it all the time.

Have you ever been to Westfield’s shopping centre? Or any other oversized super mall/shopping centre?

I have a theory.

So these places are built like giant adverts. Everything inside them is designed to look good. To feel good. To make your mind tell you something’s attractive or you need to have it. The lighting makes things glow. The floors walls and shop doors all look cool and fashionable, shiny and new. Even 90% of the staff in the shops looks great.

But the Effects are not just limited to the Staff, displays and ascetics. They transfer to the everyday people.

I took a walk through this abnormal area of mass disillusion and aw recently. My first trip to Westfield’s. I realised that in this place every 3rd woman was attractive. It was like the local area had created some sort of magnetic pull and women of all shapes and sizes were drawn to this building that offered dreams and lifestyles on credit and morphed them into more things you just have to have.

And more than once I caught myself stopping to stare.

I didn’t mean to be rude.

It’s very rare to see a woman i find attractive wearing a marvel T-shirt. I wonder if she knew geek was my kryptonite. Maybe it was the combination of that and tight jeans.
