Since You Didn’t Ask: Re: Really Cute Girl With A Deep-pink Color Hair – W4M
Re: Really cute girl with a deep-pink color hair on the 3 bus. – w4m – 20 (Burnet)
So this isn’t so much a missed connection since I see you almost every morning on the 3. You get on around William Cannon and get off before 183 and have a Siouxsie and the Banshees patch on your backpack. I am guessing with the big bag you’re lugging around and your sense of style that you’re in cosmetology school or something. I would say hi, but I am no good in the morning and you seem to be busy sifting through your iPod and the last thing you need is some dude buggin you. Anyhow if by some off chance you read this or someone you know does and you want to chat I’d love to talk to you.
I tried e-mailing you and didn’t get any response. I did find your posting and actually do look around to see if maybe you’re sitting close to the front since I mostly sit in the front.
I don’t have my Siouxsie and The Banshees patch any more since it fell apart. And as for my pink hair, it’s black with extensions in it. I plan on taking the extensions out in a few weeks, I don’t know who I’m looking for since I’m mostly looking at the people I see on the bus frequently. Sorry about my ipod, I listen to it everywhere I go.
If you see me on the bus, maybe you could take a seat next to me or at least close enough to talk to me, I’m nice. :) I don’t mind talking to you as long as you’re not creepy.
Hopefully you find my posting and come and talk to me sometime mysterious bus rider.
Pink Hair (that is no longer pink :D)
One of the most important reasons to take public transit: you might fall in love.
Here we have two humans, each occupying one seat on the bus. The female of the species (Ms. Pink Hair) has attracted attention from the male of the species because of her resplendent pink plumage, and her identification with a vintage socio-political-fashion moment with her Siouxsie and The Banshees patch. Yet she repels conversation from her admirer with her constant use of her ipod.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mysterious Bus Rider sees Ms. Pink Hair every day on the bus, but has not yet gotten the courage to say howdy in person.
SYDA hereby grants the two of you permission to sit together on the bus, as long as you both shall enjoy the sitting and chatting on the bus together. Yes, Mr. Mysterious Bus Rider, we realize that you aren’t at your best in the mornings. We totally sympathize, as SYDA naturally keeps the hours of a possum and requires a copious amount of coffee to cope with anything before cocktail hour. Sometimes you have to work with what you’ve got—and what you’ve got to work with is a morning commute.
In order to remove your dilemma of finding each other: may I suggest to Mr. Mysterious Bus Rider that you buy a Siouxie and the Banshees patch, and attach it (temporarily) to whatever briefcase, jacket or cello case that you regularly take on the bus.
If this is not workable, might I suggest that you each purchase a pink fake flower in the exact shade of Ms. Pink Hair’s aforementioned (former) hair color, which you will each sport for the duration of this bus-companion search.
We at SYDA hope that your bus chats go wonderfully well, that any future dates are not marred by route changes, unplanned detours, unexpected fare hikes or unpleasant accidents.
If this chatting and riding thing really works out—and you end up getting together forever–we totally hope that Capital Metro will provide a vehicle for your ceremony of choice to your new Happy Home. If you’re lucky, it’ll look just like the happy home in the Siouxie video below!
