I am one of the most unobservant people when it comes to my surroundings.
I’m probably too observant when it comes to what people are thinking and feeling around me (I’m like a sponge for that stuff!) but when it comes to the actual landscape around me it’s like I walk around with blinkers on.

And what’s this I hear about a cake turntable to assist you in frosting" Well, well, there’s a whole world of...
