Okay I didn't really know what to think of this piece before... until last night.
Long story short, there's this girl that I've been pseudo-dating for a couple months now, and I thought we had something going. I was (am) crazy over her, but last night she told me that she really doesn't think that much of me. I had been getting a totally different vibe, so I guess she was giving me a sign such as in your piece... and I didn't even see it the slightest bit. Obvious as it was.
So anyway, now I'm taking it as someone giving you little clues to tell you something that you might not want to hear. You may not see it, but everyone else thinks it's obvious as hell. Good piece.
