This video, which I found over at Bernie DeKoven’s blog, is a fascinating look at the different stages of Adultitis. Subways are typically filled with lots of Adultitis-afflicted people (especially on Monday mornings). At the start of this video, most of the people are demonstrating some level of the disease. As the music continues, those who are in the early stages of Adultitis loosen up a bit — some even a lot. But there’s one guy who must have a full-blown case. He seems genuinely perturbed and paranoid at first, and then kinds of warms up to a low level of curiosity. But he keeps his back turned, away from the performers (aka Naturally 7), the whole freaking time. Sad. And a living, breathing example of how serious Adultitis can be. Have you been tested?

Thanks for pointing to this video and to Bernie’s blog. People watching is infectious, isn’t it? I keep wondering what the man with his back turned was thinking about? He looked almost embarrassed. The song was so great; made me wish I been there to sing along.
Thanks again, peace to you,
People watching IS infectious, Tara. That’s one of the reasons Kim and I love hanging out at the Memorial Union in Madison. It’s a perfect spot for the sport of people watching!

Wow, that was beautiful. I’m all choked up by it. If I were lucky enough to experience something like that on the subway, or on the street, I’d be rocking out and thanking my lucky stars! That poor guy with his back turned. I wonder what was going through his mind.
Yeah, I just like watching it over and over, pretending that I’m on the subway with them. I would love to know what was on that guy’s mind…but something tells me that you can make some pretty good guesses just by his body movements and facial expressions…
