/ˈnɒn.dɪ.skrɪpt/ (adj)

very ordinary and unremarkable, having no interesting or remarkable feature, uninteresting, unexceptional, dull, commonplace, characterless, platitudinous, trite, banal, cliched, plain

I’m writing this from the nondescript building you walk by every day, and I am writing it to you because I’ve seen you walk by it every day, with your earbuds in and wearing your backpack, headed to class, probably, or work, or wherever it is that the little smile on your face it feels like only I can see is taking you. And on occasion I have seen you glance up at the building which has no signage and is probably not residential, you might think, but sure could be—and I have seen that thought form niggling in your head that you are curious, and because you are the sort who is impulsive and artistic (you have dyed your hair blue, since I have first seen you; it looks good, by the way), I have imagined and I think rightfully so that you might one day knock on the front door or find it open and come inside, and look for a secretary, and try to find someone, just to ask in your bright and cheerful way, what is this place, anyways?

As a favor to me: don’t. I don’t think you will come inside and hear strangled pleas very softly through the ventilation, I don’t think you will see the lights flicker with the odd sapping of power from the converter, I don’t think two nondescript men will grab you (you are small, petite, and this is beautiful but not necessarily violent, you see) by either slender arm and bundle you into a tall windowless room. I do not think I would have to visit you. Instead, I think you’d either get bored, unsatisfied, or get bored, satisfied—you would leave. You’d never come back.
