You know you check them. You know, every so often, you can’t resist looking. You check the Washington City Paper’s “I Saw You” column in its Matches section. You may even browse the cornucopia of Craig’s List “Missed Connections“.
I’d admit that I do, especially after a chance encounter with a potential supermodel. Of course, like you I always strike out. Well that was until today.
Finishing Savage Love in this week’s Washington City Paper, I glanced at the I Saw You column and the very first ad caught my eye: Heller’s Bakery in Mt. Pleasant. Interesting. I go there often, almost weekly, and I wondered who was making the mack in my local bakery.
Reading the ad, last weekend came back in a flash – the anger the frustration, the loss of my keys at Heller’s. And then, recognizing the ad was about me, my hopes were dashed yet again. This is an “I’m Sorry” not a “Hey Baby” ad:
Yes, I have my keys now. I picked them up later on Sunday from Heller’s when I bought another gingerbread man.
