The key to self-preservation is not to look at his azure eyes or his aquiline nose or his lips–hell, just don’t look.

Chewing your finger only solves half of the problem. Your mouth might be distracted, but your mind is still engaged.

Doodling is rather preoccupying…You drew another heart, didn’t you? Damn it, you did!

Another option is to turn and walk away. If you physically can’t (say, your shoes are stapled to the floor), close your eyes. Do. Not. Peek. For sanity’s sake do not peek…

You peeked! I saw you! You peeked!
