I Contemplated Having the Nurse Pass Along My Number

Posted on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 at 1:52 PM

After two hours in the waiting room together, I finally got up the nerve to talk to you. You were studying contracts for your law class and I was reading a book on performance art. Had I not just made plans to hang out with my friend on the phone, I would have suggested we did something when you had asked about it. I had my number written down to give to you when the nurses had us exchange examination rooms, but I ended up playing chicken. I hope we'll bump into each other again, hopefully under different circumstances. —I Won't Be Shy Next Time
