Overlooked: The Best Missed Connections of the Week

Every Friday, for some fun reading, we bring you the area’s best Missed Connections on Craigslist.

Some missed connections are missed for a reason. This week, we’ve got some people who’d be best served by just moving on.

Short brunette in yellow t-shirt looking for khaki suit goatee man–w4m–24 (7th and E, across from Starbucks)
Date: 2009-07-30, 5:29PM EDT

Hiya! We saw each other briefly this Thursday afternoon around 1:30pm, approached each other when crossing the intersection by Hotel Monaco and Jaleo Restaurant; across from the Starbucks and TangySweet frozen yogurt place. As we passed each other we kept the intense stare, and then did the double-take as we walked away from each other- you in the direction of the National Mall, me towards the Verizon Center. I am a short, white brunette, was wearing a yellow t-shirt and black pants, you were a tall, white male with brown hair, a mustache/goatee combo and khaki work suit. Never done this before, but hope to find you!

A goatee and a khaki suit? Nooooooo!

you; bandanna, septum piercing, tall, sweaty.
me; dark hair, party host.

you vomitted on my bathroom floor/in my bath tub. you even tried to wait in line before busting down the door. I thought you were cute, and such a gentleman about the whole thing.

well i cleaned the tub. wanna have drinks?

This is one case of an overly gracious host.

Amber from Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me–m4w (NPR/Arlington)
Date: 2009-07-29, 4:35PM EDT


I was working out at the gym today listening to my ipod. I’m a fan of Wait Wait but hadn’t listened for a few weeks and today I heard the July 18th edition. I always love the show but hearing your unbelievably sweet voice answering those questions swept me off my feet. All I know about you is that you’re a lawyer in Arlington but, for me, that’s enough. Anyone who sounds like that, likes Wait Wait and is smart enough to answer all three questions correctly is the girl for me.

If, by some miraculous chance, you read this, please drop me a note. I’d love to call you one day and hear Carl’s voice asking me to leave a message.

You never know, Amber could actually be 75 . . . .

Just listened to this episode on iTunes. . . . dude, if you don’t find her I will. Her voice is soooo hot.

. . . or a man.

Adversity–30 (Arlington)

Seems to come around
More than I need
With stolen breath, I look inside, if only I could see
And it’s always next to me
Like it’s been there from the start
And the thought of you, is tearing me apart

Give her up . . . and maybe the rhyming, too.
