Mental lapse…

Stupidity can really get the best of me sometimes. More so, when it comes to the affairs of the heart.

I was busy filling out one of those forms required for new samples at a client’s office, the other day, when this girl that I’ve been fancying (no, she’s not the one I blogged about some months back) for some time came out from one of the conference rooms and went straight to the counter where I was standing.

Although we’re both familiar with each other, we, I mean… I, have never had the chance to talk to her personally. Not that I didn’t have the courage to, I do. It’s just that she was always surrounded by colleagues, or is busy talking to people.

Oh yes folks, it’s the same old story.

She was asking for something from one of the attendants behind the counter when, for about a second or two, our eyes met. It wasn’t one of those long, lustful gaze that one often see in the movies, but a rather meaningless blank stare that can hardly qualify as a “moment”. Heck, I cannot recall now if I had even managed to smile at her or not.

Anyway, after finishing my task I promptly left the counter and sat down on one of the sofas in the lobby to rest a bit. She also left not long after that, and headed back to the conference room, but not after stealing a glance towards my direction.

It was then that I realized that had I just missed a rare opportunity. She was ALONE, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. What the heck was I was thinking then? I could have said something for Pete’s sake — perhaps even something as innocent as, “Hi!”.

Man, talk about having a senior moment…

Know what? I am hopeless, and I deserve be shot. Better yet, they should dip me in a vat of boiling tar first before putting me out of my misery.

Now if you will all excuse me, I need to bang my big fat head against the wall…
