Spinning in public: car dealer edition

Yesterday I had to take my mother-in-law’s car to the dealer for an oil change.  While waiting I finished the first singles of my Island Nights BFL.

Being that I live in an area with a lot of retired people and it was a Thursday morning, I was the only person there under age 65.  I get read as either a femme guy or a butch lesbian, either of which is unusual for where I live, and I suppose it just adds to the weirdness of “person spinning in public.”  Most people have never seen someone spin, and if they have it’s been at a historic recreation site. So what I do for a hobby is strange enough by most people’s standards.  Adding in looking queer…

The long and short of it is that I was highly amused and trying to ignore the 9 old people taking turns staring at me while I waited on the car.  A fairly large number of old people like to stare at other people in general.  And seniors complain about young folks being rude!  (Not that I’m that young — I’m nearly forty.  God that’s weird.)
