“COVID Times Missed Connection”

Photo by Ted Eytan

“Dear PoPville,

People say you need to shoot your shot — does that include when both people are getting a shot?

Monday afternoon, convention center, Safeway sector. You: sage coat, blue t-shirt, silver hair. Me: olive t-shirt, black jeans, tattoos. I had to flip my chair 180 degrees since I got my vaccine in the atypical arm, we therefore somewhat awkwardly faced each other for the duration of our inoculations.

Not sure if our glances were out of interest or just pre-jab jitters? I couldn’t figure out a way to start up a convo during our forced 15 minutes of wait time without seeming a total creep — if you’re out there and interested, let’s do something more fun than literally get stabbed with needles?”

Ed. Note: If any of these are you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with either party, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk using caution as you would any online encounter. For those curious about past missed connections, some have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
