Hmm…it was one of those instances at work today…
You know when you happen to cast eyes (and in this case, bump into) a member of the opposite sex (or the same sex if you’re so inclined) whom you happen to think is attractive….very attractive!
Of course, yours truly doesn’t do anything about it…..*rolls eyes*
The result of inaction? The realization that this person will just be another passing face in the grand scheme of things, as opposed to the meaningful human connection you’ve envisioned in your mind’s eye; this point is further hammered home as this person passes out of the window of one’s perception…most likely forever….
Hardly a trauma, but certainly a regret nonetheless….
At times like that, I often think back to an Underground ad I saw eons ago that basically read : “That face you just passed on the way to your train could have been your perfect partner.”
This man can only wonder….
