May 23, 2014 A Fleeting Flirtation

A perfect moment came from an innocent flirtation while waiting for my teen burger.  She, pretty and friendly, was looking for a quick meal between publishing meetings.  I have to believe that I sensed these things about her before I made the choice to talk to her, for I am seldom that bold.

The perfection of the moment, sadly, was not in the success of the flirtation.  She walked out the door without even so much as a glance back.  Unlike myself, I doubt she gave it another thought that day.  The perfection lie in those brief moments of being alive.  For a fleeting moment, there had been a connection, regardless of how tenuous.
