Some of my real life friends (specifically JW who sat next to me for about 90% of our 1L classes) know that I get a morbid amusement from the "Missed Connections" and the "Best Of..." on Craigslist. I accidentally clicked on "Casual Encounters" once, and it was by far one of the most traumatic 20 seconds of my life.
To me there is something tragic, but sweet about this whole phenomena:
"I saw you last week in the cereal aisle at hy-vee... you were wearing jeans. I think our eyes locked at some point. Tell me what color of shirt I had on, and I'll know it's you."
"I noticed you at wal-mart last week. You were smokin' hot...I'm the guy with the wedding ring on, tell me what you thought of me."
I mean, aside from all the other great
time wasting websites out there, this has to be one of my top twenty. That is until the other day, when someone wrote a missed connection to me. Not. Even. Kidding.
It gave a specific time, a specific place, the specific make and model of my car, and the car advice (no really) I gave this guy....the final nail in the coffin--it described me as abnormally enthusiastic.
Clearly I'm not going to write back. But seriously. I think this just put the "Missed Connections" in my least favorite part of the internet. Sigh.
On a brighter note...This song made my day:
Happy Monday Friends!!!
