Grey pullover - City Ave Market on Commercial

I only saw your dark hair, grey pullover, and the most beguiling eyes above your mask at City Ave market (though I still want to keep calling it Donald's!) market, on Commercial, Tues at 3. Nothing really else to add, I wont pretend there was 'a moment', I don't think you noticed me especially. But sometimes, like a beautiful sunset, or being touched by music, some things are wonderful to behold and enjoyed as an experience with no motive or expectation .And seeing you, in such a mundane setting was a delight, and lifted what was already a pretty nice day.

Quick hello

I was walking down Ontario street, minding my own beeswax, when I look over to see a beautiful person with a big happy smile greet me with a hearty hello! I was taken off guard and can’t remember how I responded, but I would like to be around you again. Coffee? Tea? Walk around gabbing?

Outside the tiki bar

I was the brunette with a striped shirt and a flower in my hair. You were dressed in a 50s, rockabilly style. We kept looking over at each other, wish I stayed behind to chat.

PG Tim Hortons

You asked me what I just called myself. It was lactard. I told you it was offensive. You had a theatre union lanyard hanging from your pocket. I think toronto’s. You ordered a iced coffee with almond milk and an apple fritter which we had to wait eons for because they were a bit scrambled behind the till. You spoke up asking for our orders. No cheese croissant for my gang! You drove off in an suv car with a tiny tear drop trailer. You were so tall and it was sooo small!!

North Vancouver Camper van compliments

I drove my orange VW bus past your sweet van, in the parking lot of Lynn valley center. We were hyped on each other style. I was pretty distracted as I just bought my van that very second, maiden voyage(!), and was trying to remember how to drive stick again. You were super cute! We should do van stuff

Jogging on the Seawall

You were jogging on the seawall, I was on a work call. I noticed your smile and decided to turn around in hopes to see you again. Luckily, you passed again and I was too shy to say hi. I would like to say hello over coffee sometime.
