Lessons from Missed Connections: “This Is More a Promise to Myself”by Lauren Passell on February 23, 2012
You – Asian, orange leather jacket, doing homework or something
Me – brown leather jacket, too shy to talk
We kind of exchanged glances on the train, then you got up and stood next to me which kind of made shy. I had plenty of times to say something about your jacket but didn’t/couldn’t. I highly doubt you’re the type to go on CL, so maybe this is more a promise to myself that the next opportunity won’t pass.
You might feel like you’re wasting the day away reading Missed Connection after Missed Connection. Surely, you think to yourself, my brain cells are rotting. I am getting stupider, you think. See! Stupider isn’t even a word! But we can learn something from these snippets of crazy love life cris-crosses. And what do we learn from Mr. Brown Leather Jacket, Too Shy to Talk? Don’t be too shy to talk. See! He’s kicking himself! On the Subway, they always say: “If you see something, say something.” Well, if you see an Asian, Orange Leather Jacket, Doing Homework Or Something, say something.
