Searching for Love at Accident Scenes, Funerals

Posted By on Wed, Apr 15, 2009 at 7:27 AM

Each week, we scour the local Missed Connections section of Craigslist, in search of the best posts. Here are some that caught our eye recently.

Miss you; am also into sports: Turnin back the clock - m4w - 58
i miss huggin u from behind, kissin ur neck, gettin on my knees to worship ur assetts, its been years but im still lookin, pic 4 pic, go blues

Hunting for love amidst the ashes of death: The huntress at the funeral - m4w - 33
The strangest place, a funeral for my uncle...You seemed caring yet cool, you were intelligent and most of all, you liked to hunt. Well, to correct myself, you used to hunt, now you are a vegetarian with whom I wish I could meet up with and talk to again...The funeral was Late last year, early this year. A small ceremony with a cremation and some wonderful words about an old hunter...

But did you look to see if she was conscious?: Post offfice crash in Wentzville - m4w
You had an accident at the post office in Wentzville about a week and a half ago. You were the one driving the Pontiac. I kept looking to see if you had a ring...

Best Post of the Week: Dark SUV License Plate UC8 T5N -- We came so close

Dear driver of the dark SUV with license plate UC8 T5N...

You were driving west towards Kingshighway a little before 9 this evening on a residential street. I think you know which one. The light ahead of you was green, and you must have gotten lost in those brilliant green sparkles of light as you dug your pedal into the floor of your huge vehicle.

I was riding my bicycle in the left lane of this road...I was only about 30 feet from the light when you nearly swept me away. By speeding by me gunning it at about 60 miles per hour.

We were so close to being united as one. My steel frame wrapped around the mirror of your hulk of plastic gas-guzzling, American-made automobile. It would have been a moment to remember. By some miracle, you missed me, and I did not fall over from the tornado you left in your wake.

...I thought about whipping out my lock and smashing your rear window. But, since your damn car was so wide, there was no where for me to run off to, and I had a feeling that would end in arrest. And probably really bad karma. And that's not what I really want.

So instead, dear driver friend, I'm writing you a missed connection.

Don't drive like a damn asshole, especially not on a residential street.
