When I saw you at the 99 bus stop at Main and Broadway at around 9pm on Wed. Feb. 20th , I thought I recognized you as someone I know. I said ‘HI’...I saw the small delicate features of your face and I realized that perhaps I have seen you before in the neighbourhood, and you have become a beautiful young woman making her way in the world. Even though we have an obvious age gap, I had a brief moment of hope wrapped within a sanguine disposition. Our eyes met, but I felt embarrassed because I was wearing my worn tumble-down work clothes and rubber boots from my temp construction gig. We both got off the 99 at Fraser, You went North on Prince Albert and I went South. If there happens to be an occasion that we run into each other again I want to introduce myself. Ok?
