Missed Connections in Monterey Bay
Last night I was walking across the street carrying a fishbowl toward my car and you said hi.
I totally froze and couldn’t bring myself to say anything; you were very beautiful.
I was going to offer you a ride up the hill since you were in heels but your car was right there, and I lost my chance!
Hopefully you see this…
Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:
Monterey Bay is our missed connections location for our spotlight today. While the feed is a quiet one, I was attracted to this message for the visual imagery of the scene: Person walks down street with fishbowl (goldfish inside, sloshing around) not paying much attention until the “beautiful” one passes by and says hi. The world comes crashing to a halt, poet stammers incoherently, and goldfish sighs in exasperation (releasing a few extra air bubbles) at the human tendency of swimming upstream to mate. “Eat salmon, don’t act like one!”
