I will remember today

I went for drinks, a lot of beer.  It was a hard day.  I got home and went into the elevator; a lady stepped in too. Her perfume smelled good.  It was late at night, perhaps awkward to start conversation. I wanted to ask her where she had been, what she was doing, why did she wear this perfume? Instead, as neighbors do, we stood in the elevator silently. I fiddled with my phone and tried to download e-mail. Connections never work in an elevator.

    Maybe, next time, you should just do it. What’s there to lose? And so much to gain. Like the reason behind the choice of perfume, how her day was like…etc Connections never work in an elevator anyway. :)

    She’d probably think “why won’t he start a conversation? May be he’s shy. May be I should make the move.”

    And then you got busy with your phone. And then she decided not to interrupt.
