Strangers in the Night...
Anyway, he smiled, and said "hello...". I of course being slightly shy, smile back and say my hello. We start talking, and all of a sudden he's telling me how cold his room was last night... me being totally clueless, start talking about the actual weather in general. We continue to talk in the elevator. Finally we get to his floor, he steps a little closer and says "It was very nice to meet you RevRee, maybe I'll see you again?..." I again flash my eyes up at him and smile, saying "Yes, I'd like that..." He walks off to his room.
Now I know what you're all thinking..."WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU ASK HIM OUT FOR A DRINK OR SOMETHING!!!???" Well, here's the deal, I'm stupid!
The next day, I'm standing in the hotel lobby talking on my phone with one of my chick friends. I was actually telling her about the attractive guy. All of a sudden, I see the guy, again! He's walking towards the door of the hotel, luggage in hand waiting for a cab.
I start freaking out, my friend "Sue" starts telling me I need to go talk to him. I keep saying "NO!, NO!" She finally says "Listen, I'm not hanging up this phone until you walk right up to that man and say something!!!" Finally I rustle up enough courage to walk up to him, hand him my business card with my little shaking hand. I say something really stupid like "ummm, I...I...I just thought I'd give you my card..." *LONG PAUSE* I just stand there with this blank look on my face, my cell phone in hand, WITH "Sue" still on the line!! He gives me this really big grin and says "Thank you RevRee, I...I have to catch my plane, but I hope to talk to you again..." and then the music started
"Watching every motion in this foolish lover's game
Haunted by the notion somewhere there's a love in flames Turning and returning to some secret place inside Watching in slow motion as you turn my way..."
Like that, he was gone.
