  • A married couple in Tim Hortons on a Saturday afternoon.

    He's playing some video game on his phone.
    Moving his phone left, right, up, down.

    She pushes the soup forward but he doesn't accept the invitation.
    He pushes it back.

    He resumes conversing intermittently,
    but his gaze does not stray from the phone screen.

    Try it, she insists again without much success.

    He pulls out his handkerchief when it seems she might blow her nose.
    Still paying attention nonetheless.
