    If You're Staring At Me, You Better Have Something To Say.

    Please Don't Stare

    Ugh! Possibly the worst thing a person can do is stare at me. It automatically makes me unsettled and nervous. I begin to think that I have something wrong with my face, or that I look so hideous that I need to be displayed in a museum as some sort of weird mythical creature. If...
