i really dont care that they all stared

i dont care that they all stared, the women and the men-
so i was sittin on the floor.
i dont understand why they stared, the kids and the contstruction workers-
they too sit on the floor.
i dont know how they stared, the businessmen and the blabbering girls-
i was sittin on the floor.
i dont really care that they all stared, the indians and the english-
so i was sittin on the floor.
i dont really understand why they stared, the teens and the troubled
they too sit on the floor.
i dont really know how they stared, the mothers and the merchants
i was sittin on the floor.

i really dont care that they all stared at me sittin on the floor

It's not Chassidish to stare at girls.

To me, staring, in a certain context can be a verbal form of lashon hara.

BTW: we had a wonderful time in Israel, and I hope to retire there one day.

nemo:
its even less chassidish to stare at sabras!

barbara from cali:
thats interesting that you think that. i dont think that staring is a bad thing necessarily. i mean in the sense of it being lashon hora (mabat hora?). i dunno. cool idea though.
o and im so happy that you had a good time..make that 'one day' today!! (nbn.org will help ya out with everything)

kasamba:
like i said to barbara, i dont really think so. i guess it depends on the situation. hey I stare all the time hehe

anonymous:
bichlal lo. i just thought it fascinating how nearly EVERY single person passing stared. and i just stared right back lol. it doesnt bother me. i do the same to people. THAT should bother me...

ppl who stare got nuthing better to do than gossip. i wish i could simply hurle myself before the starer and flaunt myself and say, hey this is me and this is what im wearing/doing... check me out, cummon, dont be shy..

the sabra said...

Ah yes that is why sunglasses are such a beautiful invention. You can do all the staring you want and noone ever has to know... ;)

Nemo said...

hi , i know this has nothing to do with what you wrote, but i just wanted to share this happy moment withyou, and because i dont have my own blog and you are my daughter , so figured i can share your space, enough of hakdomo
I FOUND THE SUDOKU BOOK!!!!!! yaay
i had a feeling the cleaning lady took it, i thought she threw it out , but why would she do that??? what does she care if i finish it first... i asked her about it , i pointed to the spot where it was and i said where is the book that was here, she shrugs shoulders..mumbles 'livre '(book-spanish) and shrugs... so me chochom that i am decided today to look by the books ( in the playroom) but to no avail, never mind the shelves are such a mess and im wishing someone would come and clean it up, so then im thinking , knowing that the cleaning lady is a kleina chochom , where oh where would she put it? oh probably between all the toys like where she dumps everything else And lo and behold.... ya , okay thats it. if you need to know why the sudoku book is so imp. to me that is for another time. im on donated space right now.

jemima3 said...

I sometimes like to stare but since I think staring is rude, I call what I do 'people watching'. BTW I only stare at interesting people.

the sabra said...

call it what you want, end of the story is the same-ur eyes upon another for an extended amount of time.

EVERYONE is interesting! boring people fascinate me by their boringness.

I stare, you stare,
I found the number book.
Lying in a toy-box;
in the basement; in a nook.

Sitting on the floor still,
and the neighbors don't know why.
Mommy has her numbers
so there's no reason to cry!

STOP your staring, START your staring,
PLEASE continue telling,
just ignore the simple fact that momma's heart is yelling...
"I found the SUDOKU! The SUDOKU!! HELLLLLLOOOOOO!
As long as sitting on the floor, you didn't stub your toe.

Priorities people. Priorities!
