The Significance of Being There

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    People change. But contrary to popular misconception, people don't change when they're with others, they change when they're alone. When they're in the shower and the water knocks on their elbows and crashes on their shoulders. They change when the water rushes through their hair and forces out the shampoo, as it clunks their skull and presses itself against their hairline.

To Whom it May Concern:
 
The very act of knowing is dangerous unto itself.
