Fog has been lifted
Cheap sunglasses don't hide the eyes well. Flimsy plastic on the sides, and waxy lenses that defy usefulness. This may not seem important, but it makes all the difference in the world for the three seconds. The three seconds there are to speak, make contact. When two individuals are on the street about to approach one another, there are exactly three seconds to make something happen. Smile, wink, or actually talk out loud. There are only three seconds to do it. A smirk can be misinterpreted, and generally a wink is a deterrent. A head nod is totally out of the question, and waves can be strange. Solely making eye contact isn't enough there has to be follow through. Done all in three seconds.
