Billy Bishops Remembrance

You: Long blond hair, black dress. Me: Short dark hair, black jacket. We stood close, back to back, made eye contact. We were with other people, but I’d be keen to say hi another time.

I feel like I have seen you in SportChek before! Today 11th Nov, probably around 1pm I seen you in SportChek dt. I nearly bumped into you lol, I did say sorry though. You were wearing like green/blue yoga pants and a white hoody I think. You are stunning and those yoga pants are awesome I was wearing jeans and a dark blue rain jacket.

Kelly on the #20 southbound the night before the centennial of armistice

I was on the bus home from a belated Dia de Muertos party, way too many drinks in for my own good. I was plugged in with earbuds to tune the world out as I tried to get home, hiccuping along the way. Someone that sat beside me started to wave a bottle in my periphery. I unplugged to see someone offering me water, which helped immensely for my drunken hiccups. Shortly after I thanked this helpful man, an older man across the aisle saw the opportunity to inquire about my festive face paint. After telling this older man about the party I was coming home from, they simply nodded in a routine appeasement. Then they delivered a bombshell along the lines of, "You got the right head for it, unlike your bud which has the wrong head shape for it." In my drunken state I couldn't do anything but laugh at the absurdity of what was just said. The man that sat beside me was black. I was a white nerd painted with black and white face paint. This older man felt the need to refer to phrenology, out of no where, just to be racist about the guy that chose to sit by me and offer me water. As soon as I could catch my breath from laughter, it was my stop. Kelly was prompt to introduce himself, and we shook hands before I hopped off the bus. I am thankful for the aid Kelly gave me in my drunken trek home, and I am regretful for not doing more in the face of this sort of injustice. This sort of casual racism is everywhere, it exists in a deep level in our society. We, or at least I, don't do enough to fight it on its face. Kelly was the most genuine human I have come across in a while, and this racist older man was a reminder of the lows of what a human can be. This post isn't so much for Kelly, as it is for anyone else that comes across casual discrimination in their lives. Be the change you want to see in the world.

33 acres of sunshine and smiles

you were behind the bar, I was at the communal table with my parents. Cute I know. It seemed as though every time we caught each other you smiled at me. I’d love to see that smile again.

T. E. Coin laundry

Laundromat at Hastings and Heatley. You popped in to put your stuff in a dryer and disappeared quickly again. You had a red top and black jeans, dyed jet black hair. I thought you were really cute. Maybe next time you should stick around.

delayed flight

We boarded our plane and, when the flight was delayed, we got off the plane. It was halloween. Neither of us were wearing costumes but we both wore hats and glasses. You were very handsome in your light coloured trench coat. I kept an eye on you but was too shy to say hello. I keep thinking about you and wishing we'd started a conversation.

Classy man at the hair salon

Bonjour dear stranger, I saw you on Wednesday November 7 around 1pm on my way to work. I was walking on Granville street near W16th ave. You were taking a seat in the waiting section of a hair salon. Union salon it was I believe. For some reason, I was drawn by your silhouette. Classy, wearing a wool coat, knee lenght dark color if I recalled. As I turned to look at you through the window, you looked at me too. I went to the salon on the next day, taking a chance to maybe get your name, but no luck. My name is actually Audrey and I would love to know yours

I saw you as I got off skytrain at Edmonds, but almost got back on

You were sitting in a single seat with you bike, and I stood up to exit at Edmonds station and started talking to a colleague as the train pulled up, and then I saw you. We kept making eye contact and I desperately wanted to wink at you/get your number/give you mine but my colleague is...talkative. Sure hope I run into you again

at Gateway Sky Train Station

You were delivering new pieces for the broken escalator at Gateway Skytrain station. Cannot remember the time but before noon I think. You smiled, I smiled, we talked about the weather/sunshine ..you got off on the mezzanine to unload that piece for the escalator and I continued on up to the trains. I almost went back to give you my # but I was in a hurry and you're probably attached, but I've got your wonderful face stuck in my head. Just the nicest smile and oh so sexy. On the off chance you see this ..coffee date and some more of that smile? Damn but you are ...fine.

Sparks flew, then I really needed a fireman...

On Nov 1st, Thursday at 9:45ish AM, I noticed a firetruck on Thurlow near Alberni. The driver, obviously an experienced and more higher ranking fireman, was clearly checking me out and this lead to me also checking him out. I hope you read this and are single. I was the blonde that shot you the big smile as headed off to work in the rain.

The Red Wagon

There was definitely chemistry when we exchanged glances today during breakfast at The Red Wagon. I didn’t want to be rude to The present company so I avoided eye contact when you left. If you read this.....breakfast sometime?

Vintage bag

Hey, we chatted on the bus when you asked me where a certain thrift store was. I cut our conversation short by putting my head phones back in. I realize now that it was rude, and I am sorry. Maybe we can be thrifting buds? Did you find the car you were looking for?

Butch Drywaller at Olympic Village

You were chilling on your smoke break by two white drywalling vans. You have short hair, jeans, and maybe an earring? Swoon. I admit I walked past twice hoping you'd notice me! Don't think you did, but wanted to let you know this femme thinks you're a babe. Keep queering the village, please, and maybe next time I'll be bold enough to come say hi ;)

El Camino’s are awesome

Hello meghan, i was having problems starting my crappy blue truck and you helped me out. Not only were you willing to jump start my truck but also drove me a few blocks to grab a battery starter. I really owed you one and was too shy to ask if i could buy you a drink (maybe bubble tea). Hope to see you around that chevron again! Thanks soo much again for helping me out!

Pizza and D&D

You ordered a pizza for your D&D session and when I brought it to you, it was a bit... sideways. I was having a pretty brutal day and instead of adding to it, you were gracious and kind. Thanks for that. I really hope your game turned out better than your lunch.

Bye Bye Bye Boy

You walked into Cartems while Bye Bye Bye by NSYNC was playing on the speakers. We made eye contact and lip synced the chorus to each other. Then, I passed you your donut and you were on your way. I wish I had had the chance to actually say hi. Coffee? Donuts? Lip sync battle? Hit me up!

Running at Trout Lake looking like a dime piece!

My friend and I were walking our ill-behaved dogs at Trout Lake and you kept running back and forth with your chocolate doodlely doo. Pretty sure you were laughing at our poor parenting skills while you locked eyes with me. Would love to run after you ever day of the week. Hit me up!

Renaming of Names Paramedic

You picked me up around back & your easy demeanour made the ride to St.Paul's a bit too short, even for someone in pain. You had a ridiculously intuitive & thoughtful way of knowing how to reduce my pain as much as possible -almost as though you had some prior training or experience..? Seriously though, you were cool, fun, down to earth & understated.. & I didn't have an opportunity to say thanks..so, thanks, C. ps -the hand gesture alongside the name change sealed the deal- you really are welcome to introduce me whenever you like (we can work on your French). If you see this & are up for a thank-you/would like to get to know you better coffee, drop me a line. Best part of the whole 'emergency' experience.

Outdoorsy guy at dog park in Richmond

We crossed paths at the dog path near the Crown plant. Your smaller dogs and my big dogs really got along. You seemed to enjoy our chat and you stayed a long time. Could you tell how attractive you are to me? Was that eye contact as warm as I felt it was? Want to get to know each other better?

We met on the #7 bus going downtown on Tuesday Oct. 30th. Your stop was before mine and we didn’t get enough time to exchange numbers. You are 1/2 German and do photo editing. I’m a nice guy that likes you. Let’s get together for a coffee or lunch soon. I hope you see this ad.

A friendly and beautiful smile at Starbucks

The first time I came to the Starbucks you work at was about 1 month ago. I tried to make small talks while you were taking my order. I learned that you're from the UK because of your accent and also your name from your name tag. There are a million Starbucks in the city but I keep coming back to yours because I want to see your smile every morning. Your name is a 3 letter word and it starts with the letter 'R'. Can I buy you a cup of coffee?

Mad Hatter at Dark 80s

It was loud in front of the speakers but when you leaned forward and spoke into my ear I'm pretty sure you said your name was Michelle. Unfortunately I didn't realize you were saying goodbye. Your unflagging energy and inventive, fun movements were impressive--especially considering you probably had on 90 pounds of costume--and then, suddenly, your absence was notable. It made me a sad rabbit. Well, not really--I mean I was still having fun. But it was funner with you around. I think we should see if we could be friends...
