Missed Connections

My latest form of amusement is browsing Craigslist's Missed Connections. Some are very lame. Others are quite sweet. And some seem sweet until you get to the last line and it says "Hit me up sometime." Classy.

There are a few that are noteworthy or just so pathetic, I can't resist sharing them:

You were driving a grayish/blue BMW. I first noticed you as my friend pointed out your beautiful roundish southern face. He noted that he wasn't into that look so i decided to take a glance. As you finished pumping your gas in to your shiny and stunning car, you went inside to get a copy of your receipt. At this point I decided to make my way inside to get a delicious blue Gatorade. Before I could even make it into the store, you were at the counter and on your way out. I opened the door for you, but you still decided to use the other one. Our eyes met and we exchanged similes as if we were both riding unicorns over a magnificent rainbow. I wanted to say hi or hello, but was overwhelmed and didn't want to ruin the moment. Your beauty stole all the energy I had and almost couldn't make it back to the cooler where my 32 ounce thirst quencher laid. If you read this, maybe I can fill up your tank sometime?

I saw you the first time in your red cape and spandex on Apalachee Parkway swooping down from the sky to save a biker from getting hit by a truck ... Some nights, on my way home from the bars, I see you sitting on top of the Capital Building looking down upon us; ever vigilant ... Just wanted to say, I don't know why you chose Tallahassee, but we are grateful. You really are a Super Hero.

Caped Crusader's reply:
Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thanks for your message. Sometimes I get to feeling no one notices me anymore. I never asked for these powers ... but here I am. And so I am doing my best to use them for good, you know.

Being super is kinda lonely sometimes ... everyone wants autographs and pictures ... and then they go home to their families and loved ones.

Sorry to be down ... maybe its the weather. What say you and I go to Paris for some coffee? I can have us there in 20 minutes!

And finally a sweet one:

We dated for a long time-- 3 years. I messed things up in the end.

Just wanted to let you know that even now, after a few years, I still love you. I can't help thinking what might have been--we were so great together. Making you smile and laugh was all I liked to do.

I see you occasionally and act like I'm whole, but I'm not. You are the missing piece of my life. Its not fair to you, or me.. or anyone else involved.

Just thought I would vent anonymously.
