A regretful reader asks:

“Woodley Park metro elevator, 9:15 am, x2 (two days in a row). Noticed you yesterday and I think we shared a smile (to me, it was about how awkward people are in full elevators–you?). Did a double take at my luck today when you were there again. I wasn’t sure it was you at first, since your purple gingham shirt stood out yesterday, but think I caught you doing a double take too. Today, we both just made the train and ended up in the same car, standing by the doors. I debated striking up a conversation, but instead avoided eye contact and didn’t gather the nerve before I had to get off at Dupont.”

If you are the missed connection, please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch if you’d like.
