Sometimes...

Sometimes I'll get the urge to browse the Missed Connections on craigslist. I don't think i'm the only one who looks, hoping someone's fallen MADLY and Anonymously in Love after seeing me, you know, buying a melon at the corner store. Still nothing. Damnit. But I love reading silly drama, and today the best ones are definitely WACKY and KNEE-SLAPPY strangeness:

Please stop ransacking my office and bludgeoning accountants to death so I can concentrate. You are raging and merciless, but I must finish this crack-rock, er.. spreadsheet. Maybe we can meet for some lunchtime raping and pillaging. I will bludgeon some accountants too. Please stop your savage berserking.

I'm sorry. I just don't usually do this many drugs before noon. Must... build... tolerance...

this is in or around goo goo goo goo

A guy died today on the corner of Geary and Powell... He was there...standing...waiting for the bus maybe?...then he fell down, passed out, died.

People just stared and stood around. The ambulance came quickly for once. They couldn't revive him and they covered him with a yellow tarp. His foot was sticking out. Everyone who wasn't aware of what had occured just went about their lives....while this guy laid there...dead.

I wondered if he was from here....or a tourist... I wondered if he had a wife, unknowing that her husband lay dead in union square...children who didn't know their father had died, in front of people, totally surrounded, but totally helpless.

I went back to my office and about an hour later my co-worker glances out the window towards the corner, and says "I wonder how those people would feel if they knew that they're standing where a guy died an hour ago."

I dunno, this made me think about my own mortality and how much I would hate to die in front of a crowd of people staring at me as I struggled to live...

he woke up in the morning, got dressed and went downtown for whatever reason....he didnt know he was going to be dead by 4pm today... Just bizarre. I dunno. I hope he is at peace... wherever he is...
