"Nobody ever seemed to do one thing at a time any more. To look around them or take notice of the small things and the strangers who constantly hovered around them within inches of their most precious assets. Their trust in others was staggering, so secure were they of their own infallibility. They really believed they were the masters of their own universe. Until somebody came along and showed them otherwise." ~From Single, by K.L. Slater.
