Masks and the office

I can only just see his eyes over the mask
is he squinting? yeah its a death stare
I'm sure
and he could go for that highlighter pen any moment
I move a little uneasily but rotate my chair towards him
adjust my mask, showing no fear
we are now locked into this moment
I slowly reach for the stapler
never lose eye contact
tapping it on my thigh
I can see he's pondering the move
no way to up it easily
now he's fiddling with his phone
I have the edge
I wonder if we are still going to lunch :)

Thoughts and Souls are in the eyes! Bet people ARE paying more attention to the eyes! I always have - never mind what they are saying - look at the eyes for confirmation of what they are really thinking!
