Missed Connections: Grossed Out Edition

Is Washington desperate for romance? Some of these situations sure suggest it.

This week, Craigslist posters manage to find the potential for romance in the ickiest of situations. Funerals, bicycle collisions, and even a vomit shower (yikes) are not enough to extinguish the fire in these men and women’s hearts.

You’re cute! Hope everything is ok with your eye. You left before I could ask you if you were alright.

I think you smiled at me and I smiled back. Are you looking for your Spencer? Write me back if you would like to get a drink sometime.

The last thing this world needs is another Speidi. For the sake of humanity, I hope she doesn’t respond.

Thanks for picking up someone else’s paper towels from the floor. You’re braver than me, but I hope you washed your hands before you ate!

Any bets on the context of this interaction? I’m not sure I really want to know what those paper towels were cleaning up.

You followed the wrong procession today at ft lincoln. I didnt think it would appropriate to ask you your name and phone number at a funeral. I feel like i missed an opportunity to meet a gorgeous woman. If you are interested in meeting send me a message I would love to hear from you…..

Someone took Will Ferrell’s character in
Wedding Crashers a little too seriously.

You Puked on Me – 32 (Outside Russia House)
Date: 2010-08-22, 11:54PM EDT

That was f— surreal. You, whoever you are, puked off the stairs leading up to Russia House, right over the railing and smack onto my head. And then, you were gone. I never got to thank you for bringing my night to a very strange close. It did give me a good chuckle. Also, thanks for drinking your vodka straight, or at least without an excess of chasers, such that your vomit was at least toward the low end of the vomit-volume spectrum.

Tell me what you had for dinner so I know it was you.

And who says romance is dead?
