“Dear PoPville,

You were out running on Nevada Ave NW, near Chevy Chase, DC, this morning (Wednesday) around 8:30am, wearing a grey shirt, black shorts, and a blue hat (I appreciate it wasn’t backwards). I was walking my dog as you passed by. I should’ve said hi but hadn’t had my coffee yet, so my brain was working slowly.

If you’re interested in grabbing that cup of coffee, let me know.”


“I had a missed connection at Anafre on Sunday, September 5th. She was sitting with a nice couple a table over – she was wearing a yellow shirt with some type of handprints on it. I was trying my best not to ease drop but I heard her talking about (hopefully complaining) her dating life. She mentioned one guy laughs at all of her jokes, which she likes, and said something about another date. Anyways, she commented on how my dog was living his best life while taking up way too much room. We chatted for a minute and when she left she said something to and my dog and all I could say in rerun was, “you too.”

I’d love to go back to Anafre and laugh at all of your jokes.”
