When I’m drawing in a crowded bar, it’s because I want to draw, not because I’m trying to get attention for being artistic or a loner or whatever.
I recognize that she might have been completely oblivious to me, or that she might have just enjoyed not having a man bother her while she danced. But I’m pretty sure she wanted me to notice and acknowledge her.
And I was just in the right kind of mood to completely refuse to do so.
(Except of course that I just did.)
