Whoa uh oh, the sweetest thing...
Yeah, so U2 was playing in my head as I watched the following hook-up at like, 3 a.m. in the morning when I couldn't sleep. I live in an old converted hotel that overlooks downtown, so basically, when Boise parties till 3 a.m. on a flippin' Tuesday, so do I, cursing them and every emo-cover band that ever mastered the art of applying black eyeliner. But that night, when I heard these guys talking below my window, it actually wasn't so bad.
The guy, kind of nerdy, looking up songs on his laptop, sitting as FAR away from her as possible.
The girl, kind of edgy, bleached hair, the preying mantis to his worst fears.
The thing is, it worked for them, and when I wasn't feeling totally creepy for watching them for a couple seconds, I kind of felt like the universe was trying to make up for a past connection between two other people that somehow got missed.
Here's to the unexpected, may it keep biting us in the ass...
