That was the first and last time I felt something right away. A something at first sight situation. It was right after the regional convention and we all went to that pub in the basement. Everyone was there. One of my girls was playing tic tac toe with this handsome fella with a soothing deep voice. I wondered if the game was strategically symbolic as each took turns exchanging x’s and o’s like their whole lives depended on winning. My other friend was on the other side at the bar showing people pictures of her life in Florida. I hope they liked cats.
I don’t exactly know how the conversation began but you started making your pecks bounce. My stupid brothers used to do that all the time growing up when they worked out. They would take off their shirts and make them bounce to the beat of the music playing. I thought it was the funniest thing ever to see another guy do it. Somehow it made me feel unusually comfortable. I thought you were just as stupid and funny and I just remember laughing the whole time I was with you. You introduced me to all of your friends there and it was like I’ve always known them. How is that even possible?
The night was ending and we were ready to go to our next spot. We said goodbye and exchanged social media information. And then that was it. We tried a few times more to reconnect that initial feeling but it all fell through, each and every time. I started to get the point. I guess it was just very nice to meet you.
Sometimes we hit it off so well but my question always is: What happens the moment we walk away? Are we replaced in thought by someone much more memorable? Is not that initial chemistry enough to make you wonder about me from time to time? Maybe I frightened you because I laughed too loud. I don’t get it. I don’t think I will ever understand. And since I don’t have the answers, this is where my story ends.
Feel free to let me know what you think happens after we first meet.
Thank you for reading!
