tuesday june 16

today i was sitting on campus with my laptop in my lap when a pair of middle-aged women walked by me, immersed in conversation. suddenly, one of the women cut herself short and directed her attention to me. "you know you shouldn't sit with it like that," she said, gesturing at my laptop. "electromagnetic waves." i thanked her for the tip and shifted my weight as if i was going to move the laptop somewhere else. when she walked off, i returned it to its original spot, electromagnetic waves be damned. an example of the kind of danger i look in the eye on a daily basis.
