Ever watched someone...

...when they think they are alone? When I happen to do that, truth be told, I enjoy it. No eavesdropping and that is not the intention anyway. Out of earshot and you can rest your conscience in the grandpa chair and relax back and enjoy the view. There is something very genuine and true about those moments. Sounds almost voyeuristic, but to see an unadulterated expression of anger, glum or delight sometimes tells you things about that person that no spoken conversation can ever possibly achieve. Everyone has their minds fortressed in such carefully cultivated fa├žades that however ugly it gets, even a genuinely negative expression will be preferred over dull and fake cheerful shrieks.

Remembered that forwarded story where a woman eats baked beans and goes home to face a surprize party blindfolded.
