I think most people can relate to this regardless of the surroundings, though it did give me a good laugh thinking about recent workout interruptions…
You’ve been there, right? You’re clearly “in the zone,” totally plugged into your tunes, but someone still interrupts? Or, even better, they start waving to get your attention?
I always try to figure out what about me looking in the opposite direction, simultaneously lifting, and possibly even singing along to my Rob Zombie didn’t give the (solid, I thought!) indication I wasn’t in chat mode.
Maybe I should try a sign??
Awareness goes a looooong way!
