When one becomes vacant during an activity and appears to be staring off into space
The stares occur due to a lack of interest in the local environment, activity or people due to too much self interest and the attention span of a stoned butterfly that flunked out of butterfly primary school in the 3rd grade for licking bus windows instead of innuendo laden flower parts.
NotaBogan: ...It means a lot to me; I cant even begin to tell you how much of a difference this could make ...are you even listening?
ABogan4sure: Umm, what?, sorry Bogan I must have had the stares
NotaBogan: Well thank you for making me feel less than random yet again
ABogan4sure: Oh harden the fuck up and stop being a bogan
NotaBogan: I am so sorry that you have done something to hurt me again and blamed me for it. How could I be so thoughtless as to have feelings.
ABogan4sure: I dont have the energy for this any more
NotaBogan: You are truly the most Awesome friend
The example above may appear a tad random and ‘NotaBogan’ may also appear to be over-reacting somewhat; however, repeated episodes of the stares do tend to add up and become rather annoying (refer: Tracey Smiff)
