Chips for Supper

Avoiding the greatest thing on earth — chips for supper

Well that was interesting…


Just over a week ago my internet and TV both stopped working.  Just in time for Game 3 of the Canucks vs Blackhawks. So I had to go to Starbucks to watch the game on the internet.

While there, a good-looking guy caught my eye. And he even poked his around the corner again as he was leaving! I swear he was looking and smiling at me!

So I sent out feelers on Craigslist’s Missed Connections page.  I’ve used it many times and I’m always looking on it to see if anybody notices me while I’m out. So far, nada.  I’m un-noticeable.

But then late Friday night I receive an email in response to my post.  He described himself and the clothes he wore, but the clothes didn’t sound familiar.  But then again, I might not have paid attention to the clothes if he just walked past me and I only saw him twice.  So I agreed to meet him at Starbucks.


It totally wasn’t my guy. A little disappointing. And totally not the type of guy that I normally go for.  Also disappointing.

But he was nice enough.  Older than me.  I was just super tired tonight so I’m a lot less engaging than normal, which is usually really low anyway.  Caught him looking down at the girls a few times. Men…. they don’t change.

I also had Bell’s Palsy a few years ago and never 100% recovered.  So sometimes I look like I’m winking. And my eyelashes were sticking together. So I hope he doesn’t think that I was winking at him a lot.

As we were leaving, the Starbucks employee called us over to get free baked goods as it was closing time.  However, he put them in the same bag.  Does that mean he thinks we’re a couple? lol.

So the question is, do I see him again?

  1. Um, yeah you totally see him again, why not? You never know. First time meets are ALWAYS awk to the ward.

  2. As someone who is recently single, I would say you should definitely see him again. Single men around these parts are hard to come by!
