     The Master told this story about the way people look at other people:
     Soon after his marriage, the Master lived on the tenth floor of a city apartment. His young wife one day stepped out of the shower to reach for a towel. She froze! There, outside the window, was a window washer looking at her. A whole minute passed as she stood rooted to the ground, too stunned to move a muscle.
     The man broke the spell. “What's the matter lady?” he said. “Haven't you ever seen a window washer?”

  1. Oooooooohhhh! I like that toy. Hahaha!

    Window cleaners. My previous office was on the 10th floor then 8th floor and now 2nd floor. Oh gee, I am going down, am I not? Anyway, they have large windows and I try to ignore the washers but sometimes I just look through them, not at them. I take pictures of them sometimes.

    As for the young wife...the washers did not fall off, so she must have been a quite a looker.

  2. Fun write :) Have a good weekend :)

  3. hahaha...you realize there will be people lining up to be window washers now...glad he was quick of mind...smiles...thanks for the saturday morning chuckles brother...

  4. Yes, yes, yes....

    I shall rush to the office for the job.

    I shall always remember to fasten safety belt.

  5. Is he saying we are too self-conscious to notice the other person is naked?

  6. What's a matter for you, Lady? :)

  7. heh heh heh My window cleaner would probably need therapy if he ever caught me in the noddy........

  8. Hahahaha. I disagree with Ces. The window washer did not fall off, so she must not have been quite the looker.
