It's Monday morning, which means back to work for many of us! Don't worry; there's only 5 days 'til the weekend! He he...
Speaking of the weekend, I had a very nice one. I got to spend time on Friday night having dinner with a pal at a restaurant called Uncommon Ground, and the food was delicious!
We then met up with friends, including one of my favorite people ever, Rey, who was visiting from Tampa. I sure do miss you buddy, and would love for you to move back to the Chi!
Saturday night was excellent too! I attended the annual CMSA party, which is the league that I play football, dodgeball, volleyball & kickball through.
Fun all around!
However, in the midst of all this fun, I was caught!
This morning, I woke up to 2 emails from friends, both of who had forwarded me a link to Craigslist, where I was the subject of a Craigslist Missed Connection.
Of course I am flattered. Don't we all secretly hope that someone out there finds us interesting enough to actually put a Craigslist ad out?
Although, the posting was confusing. I am not really sure if the person is trying to be cute & funny, or a little mean-spirited...
Here is the Post:
To the person who is trying to steal my life - 22 (everywhere i go)
Give it back. You are a pretty cute guy with little star tattoos above your elbows on both arms. You know who you are. It has recently come to my attention that we often take the same bus, work in the same building and hence ride the same elevators, and work out at the same gym. Not only that, but I went out twice this weekend, to Sidetrack and Jackhammer, and you were at both places both nights. You should either stop taking my life, or maybe we could just actually meet each other so it wouldn't be so awkward. I was planning to talk to you at Jackhammer but then you seemed to be fairly engrossed...
There is no doubt about it, the person was descriptive enough that he was certainly referring to me.
However, I cannot think of a single person that I have seen who rides my bus AND works in my office building AND goes to my gym. ???
Maybe I need to open my eyes a little wider!
I wouldn't put it past one of my friends to be playing a joke on me! But the only people I can think of who would do this, weren't with me this entire weekend. Hmmm...
Well, this is what I would say, if I was going to answer the ad:
I would start by saying Thanks for calling me a 'pretty cute' guy, i guess. I mean, it would've been nicer if he had left the word 'pretty' off and just thought I was overall cute...but it's better than being called hideous!
I would also say that I promise I am not trying to take your life, I swear! However, if we have so much in common, and show up at the same places, then I would say that your life probably isn't so bad. I would consider negotiating a trade-off!
Especially since you are 22 years old! I would LOVE the chance to go back and relive some of those fun years!
Now, for the next couple of days, I will probably be on the lookout, naturally!
I tell ya...it's hard being in demand, y'all! :)
