Bunny Sighting

I had one remaining day of vacation for this year, so I decided to take it last Friday. I had planned to visit several historic sites during the day, but when I awoke I just didn’t feel up to hopping in the car and driving for an hour or so. I decided to sleep a little longer and maybe only visit one or two sites instead of all three. When I awoke the next time, I decided to skip the historic sites altogether and maybe just run some errands, do some shopping, and take a few pictures in my neighborhood. When I awoke the next time, I revised that down to lunch and a few errands. By the time I finished going to the post office and having some preventive maintenance done on my car, I barely had enough time to get stuck in the Friday afternoon traffic on the way home to make dinner.

The high point of my day was getting to see NBD in the post office parking lot. At least I think it was her. She was walking away from me and at least a hundred feet away, but I would know that walk and shiny black hair anywhere. She wore a tan leather coat with white fur lining and was carrying a stack of packages. With the pine trees in the background it would have made a near perfect HKRXmasux shot (we would need snow to make it completely perfect). I jogged toward her and fished out my camera but it was clear she would reach her car long before I got there. For a moment I considered screaming her name (“Hey, Dr. Bunny!”) as I tore across the parking lot so I could snap several paparazzi style photos of her as she fled the scene, but I restrained myself and let her go. It might worry her if one of her patients chases her across a parking lot so he can take her picture. What do you think I should have done?

I think what you need to ask yourself is... What Would Marv Do?

WWMD? Probably think he was too ugly to ever approach a woman like that, so he'd go get several shots and brews until he got into a fight and killed somebody. Works for me.

My word verification was epainbxv.

You should eat lots of candy so you get cavities. Isn't that the perfect excuse to see her again?

Good call on this one Grant. Chasing with camera my have made her hop away in fright.

Names won't be named (to protect the innocent) but I am torn in a similiar way. Do I freak him out and snap his pic, or just keep wishing I had the nerve to DO IT ALREADY. After all, I'm talking about my sneaky camera cell phone. Surely I can act casual enough to pull this off..........

Well, it sounds like, with her arms full of packages, you may have been able to catch up with her and get that picture.

Snap her picture then say...."Oh! I'm so sorry! I thought you were (insert hot Hollywood model/actress name here)!

It's lame, I know. I am SO GLAD I'm already married 'cause there'd be NO HOPE for me in picking up guys!

Is this some sort of Donnie Darko type thing?

I dont think there was much you could of done really if she was too far away other than run her off the road.

You should have asked her out the very first time you asked all of us what you should do with this girl...
