You know where to find me.

“Let’s dance” in Silver Spring CVS – w4m – 23 (Silver Spring)

Last Saturday, March 7th, after a night of shameless drunkeness, I ran into CVS to grab a few things before heading home. My arms were full and as I turned the corner, I bumped into you! I moved to the left and you moved to the right. I moved to the right and you moved to the left. After the failed attempt to get around each other, you grabbed my arms and said, “Let’s dance!”

I was stunned, surprised and at a complete loss for words! You were absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t think of anything equally clever or charming to say in response. Now I’m kicking myself.

Hope you see this dance partner!

Salsa? Tango? Fox trot? This one is awww worthy.

Goddess, I will write this everyday until you get the message. They have taken everything from me. I told you that they wouldn’t let me be happy and that they would find a way to break us apart. Not sure what has happened with you but I am gone, not indefinitly though. I left to keep at least you safe while I fight to keep everyone else out of harm’s way. They will say things, they will tell you they are someone that they are not but I am real, what we had was real, and I will return when everything dies down and everyone is safe. I love you, always will. even though I am not there, I am always loving you.

Who is after you and what did you do?! We’d like to think you are a rogue federal agent running from the CIA. Or maybe Batman.

You were the court reporter during a trial on 3/9 and I was a member of the jury. We made eye contact and smiled at each other several times. The deputy said he would get me your card the next day but you weren’t there 🙁 I believe he said you live in Stafford(?) He said you were going to look me up on Facebook, but not sure if you will be able to find me. I am sure that you will not see this, but it is worth a try. Please contact me with the name of the courthouse and what the trial was about. I would love to buy you dinner.

Picking up women during a trial? This is a new one.

I’m a man.

That definitely narrows it down.

We chatted first thing Saturday morning. You are all my all-time stranger crush.
In addition to not-spending-money-at-the-apple-store, I also enjoy not spending money elsewhere. So, want to do something free with me sometime?
PS: great name.
This is what Missed Connections during a recession looks like.
