Sensitivities Hmph

It still annoys me when folks abuse sensitive children. Well, what doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger, right?

You could be 32 and still hear conversations from across 30 feet of quiet office, notice the coppery smell of a colleague having her period, keep yourself primed for risks by occasionally imagining folks who walk up to you and start hacking away at you with cleavers, feel the ebbs and flows of tightness in muscles from head to toe according to protein:carb:water:salt intake, notice the fear in timbres of a usually cheery colleague, track the politics of three dozen parties, observe the future and past states of an organisation in a single view, all while bending over to wrap up a little bag of trash.

I think that's why caffeine helps - tunnel vision, tunnel thought, it reduces distractions.
