“Drug addiction. Meth heads have themselves fully convinced that they are acting normal. I had to go up to the courthouse last year, and there was a woman who was 90 pounds soaking wet, sores all over her face, track marks on her arm, bouncing off the walls on the high-speed chicken feed.

She had a little pit bull puppy with her, and she insisted on making conversation with the policeman standing by the front door. Then she would put the dog down and run out of the courthouse so the dog would chase her, get to the road, run back, and presume to talk to the cops like nothing had happened. The self-assurance was unmatched.”

“Trauma and mental illness. If you know your own tells and someone else shares a few you can read them like a book.

Jumpier than normal? Probably leftovers from a household where mom and dad fought a lot.

Playing with hair out of nervousness instead of to be cute/occupy your brain briefly? Anxiety at peak.

Weirdly okay with pain? They’re probably into that.

Smile fades as soon as they think no one can see them. That’s either an introvert near the end of their battery cycle or a rather depressed individual. Maybe both.”

You put on 40lbs of lean muscle mass in 30 days, taking some “all natural supplement” you just happen to be sponsored by? Yeah, okay.”
