Surprise sightings

When you unexpectedly run into people, how many of those times are you actually pleased with the surprise sighting? Say it happens 10 times, how many of those are you thinking,

SHIT! Now I have to talk to them.

I’m curious.

  1. Glad – 3 of 10
    SHIT – 7 of 10

    Of course, I am a bit of a shy hermit, so I may be a bad example.

    “what the hell is his/her name” another fine point. I tend to lump that into “Oh shit”

  7. Elvis used to call people he didn’t know “cowboy”. I always liked the sound of that –

    “Hey Alias Guy”
    “Hey there, Cowboy”

    Not too obvious…

  9. usually i’m always glad

    then amber and i went to the prada store downtown w/some of her friends

    some girl tapped me on the shoulder by the door
    “excuse me…”

    shit.. i stood there dumbfounded.. i couldn’t remember her name and feeling like an idiot

    "thirty seconds later, after i say 'i'm sorry, i just totally can't place your name.. where do i know you from?'

    she’s all: you dont

    and tried to get me to go to one of those open casting things

    i swear she looked familiar though. i think i really did know her, and she was too embarassed that i didn’t remember, so made up some dumb story.
