Got your name, but not your number

Posted By on Thu, Dec 5, 2019 at 8:22 AM

I'm generally not one to talk up strangers in grocery store check-out lines, but there was something about our exchange of smiles and gazes around the store that compelled me to check out with you. Watching you shudder, then laugh was the perfect reaction to me describing my art. I shouldn't have let you leave without my number. Here's hoping we'll meet again at our favourite north end grocer.

Best bus driver in HRM

Posted By on Fri, Nov 29, 2019 at 9:09 AM

I want to shout out the driver of the 3 who always stops for people when they’re running to catch his bus. You’ve saved my roommate and I from being late for work numerous times, and I’m sure there are others who can say the same! In all my years of being a Halifax Transit passenger, he’s the only one I’ve seen do this, which is why I’ve named him the best bus driver in HRM. Love!

Your red hair and my nuts

Posted By on Tue, Nov 12, 2019 at 9:54 AM

It was a Saturday at Pete’s in the afternoon, and I was awkwardly holding a bag of nuts and talking to my friend. You have long red hair and you were wearing a cream-coloured coat. You walked by, and we shared a smile, and a little laugh. I think you’re super-beautiful. I’m the woman with short curly brown hair and glasses.

Culinary cutie

You just trolled one of Gordon Ramsey's cooking videos while eating a Bacon Dipper cracker off the floor.

Uncommon love

To the coffee shop manager with the tattoos and pony tail: You're just great! You always find a way to brighten up my often-dull days with a smile or secret treat. Big Love!

Good vibes save lives

A couple of weeks ago you were walking by Garden Food Bar and smiled at a dorky trans-girl with big glasses and long hair. You were wearing a long jacket and had a beautiful smile. I just wanted to say thank you, you pulled me out of a bit of depression and gave me butterflies in my stomach.

Where are you?

Hey Mr. Postman: We stopped and talked two summers in a row on the steps to the beach. You had lots of time to spend there because of an injury. How about meeting again on Monday, September 23, rain or shine around 4pm?

Love is love

To the lesbian couple holding hands on Quinpool Road last Friday: I was walking to school and passed you on the sidewalk. As a closeted teenager, seeing you made acceptance feel like a reality.

Locked away my stress!

Thank you, kind stranger, for picking up my wayward house key and tying it to a light post on Windsor Street the other day! There were only a couple of places it could have been dropped, so I was worried someone had kept it for evil. Thank you <3

Music and consent

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2019 at 3:43 PM

Hey, girl from the Common show. I would have called it sexual assault. There's no consent in a power imbalance like that. Hopefully you interpreted it differently. —MeToo

All smiles despite the heat

I'd like to give a shout out to everyone working this past week in customer service and food service who rocked their jobs in this sweltering weather! I see you! You're all working so hard and still manage to be so pleasant, air conditioner or not, and I appreciate that.
PS: Don't forget to tip minimum-wage earners!

Space bun princess

I saw you at the most recent HomeBass. You were dressed in green neon and grooving effortlessly on the dance floor. I took your cool neon sunglasses and you slapped me for it. I think I fell in love right then and there. I hope I see your red hair at another event, you're truly something special.—Not cool enough for you

A credit to humanity

Thank you, "Susan in Halifax," for finding and reporting my credit card lost! You saved me from quite the hassle! I hope some good karma comes your way! —WK

Girls are the best

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2019 at 1:51 PM

A few weeks ago I was dancing and singing at The Seahorse and I keep going back to a moment of bliss where you leaned into me and we belted out a song together. It felt nice to be noticed by you. I needed it. Thanks for the flirty green garland.

For the "Untitled Bitch" in the Coast

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2019 at 5:17 PM

I read the story of how the hospital failed you when you were having a miscarriage. I had a similar experience three years ago. I see you. It's horrible, and it's not fair. Take care of yourself and know that you are not alone. To everyone else: let's lobby for better medical care for those who suffer miscarriage and pregnancy loss.
