To the Boy on the Bus

Posted on Thu, Apr 21, 2011 at 10:22 AM

Maybe I'm crazy and reading too much into this but was that some lingering eye contact on the 33 this morning? Twice? I remember you used to take my bus a couple years ago going home, and when I started taking the 33 in the morning recently you were there. I think you're absolutely freaking adorable and would like to at least introduce myself, but, with ipods and blackberries and all that stuff, it's impossible to not look like a creep striking up a conversation with someone who has earphones in their ears and is fiddling around with a blackberry. Talk about obvious and it's anything but smooth. I'll give you a hint—we take the same transfer bus to get to the 33 and we get off at the same stop downtown. And, if you'd like, you can always sit beside me and at least say hi. I wouldn't mind getting a name, and some nice morning bus conversation wouldn't hurt, either. —Crushin' Bitcher
