Fingers Crossed For My Missed Connection Post

I would probably not be writing this if it wasn’t for that second glass of wine and an encouraging tweet from one of my awesome blog friends Lady J Wanderlust –



So my mom hasn’t been able to afford a new car in a while, so I usually go with her to the mechanic she uses and I have to say, the guy that works there is so cute. Weirdly, he also reminds me of the guy I accidentally farted in front of in the 6th grade (I don’t like to talk about it). I have always liked him, he has a cute smile and he likes my mom (and she likes him too…you see? This was meant to be). Plus, he’s a little taller than me, and at 5’10, I appreciate that.

So, tonight, after he flashed that adorable grin at me and my mom (most importantly, at me), I decided to take the plunge and post on Craigslist’s Missed Connections.

I am not so into my wine that I will actually post a link to it (no, that will not be happening), but I wanted to let you all know that I did it. Especially just in case he actually responds.

Now, will I get any type of response? I have no idea and I sincerely doubt it, especially because I have this sneaking suspicion he has a girlfriend (he has that married/long term relationship attitude about him). But, you never know right?

Anyways…tomorrow is a office gift exchange that I’m taking part in and you know that will inspire a post.

Happy (almost) Friday everyone!

    You had me at “kid I farted in front of…” That made me laugh. Love embarrassing stories.

    Ahh I hope he sees it! Or, if you actually know this guy… do a little detective work 🙂 I hope he’s single for your sake.

    Good luck to you. Glad to push you in your wine-induced posting.

    I hear you on the height thing, too. I’m 5’8, so in heels it’s an annoyance. Let’s hope…

    • Ha ha ha!! Yah, It’s the type of story that if this guy and I do end up dating, I will have to wait a lonnnng time before I tell him he reminds me of that guy! Ohh I do get to see him on the 28th though! (I have that day off from work and my mom is bringing her car in…coincidence? Nope!) 🙂
