Missed Connections in Brooklyn, NY
Reading a Book, Reached for the Pole and Missed
You were really tall with dark hair and blue eyes, reading an old book.
I kept looking over because you were really cute
but I think you saw me a few times.
At some point you reached out to grab the pole and missed by like six inches
and you caught me laughing.
Apparently the little things do it for me in the morning.
Anyway, sorry I didn’t say hi even though we were right next to each other
at Union Square.
Hope I see you around!
Note from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle Finder: It’s pretty common for people on the MCs to misinterpret a message as being for themselves. This posting occurred at a time when someone I knew was staying in Brooklyn for a week and traveling by subway to visit art galleries all over NYC. While the physical description seemed accurate, it goes without saying that there are dozens of other individuals in NYC who would also fit the description. But still, it’s fun to think that this MC was written for them.
