another missed connection?

posted March 22nd, 2010

I saw you riding in your red Sunbird and I knew that I had to have you. You were stopped on the corner of Brook and Breckenridge looking so cool. I was the girl with a 12-pack of “D” batteries and a bag of (recycled!) facial tissues, I asked you for a smoke and you smiled and said that the one you were smoking was your last, but I knew it wasn’t, that’s ok. Well if by any chance you read this I hope that you will meet me at the Salvation Army’s Old Male Campus’ Auditorium (where we first locked eyes! Talk about fate....) on March 28th for the Bonnie Prince Billy and The Cairo Gang show. It’s only $10 for the show and $5 for dinner. You can get tickets at and I think in the high school lobby the day of the show. I heard there are limited dinner tickets, but I also hear that all the proceeds go to the Salvation Army Culinary Training Program. Meet me where we first met, and maybe this can be a story we tell our kids. Or some kids, anyway.
