You, Mr. Peanut, Halloween-celebrating night 2013. I was with friends at Mac's on Division, dressed as Nancy Drew, naturally. (If you knew who I was, you'd understand "naturally.") Are you naturally Mr. Peanut? You had a handler with you, who helped you take your head off at one point, precariously, when you were beneath a chandelier. You are marvelous. Can we arrange a group peanut-hang again this year? Please contact me at email@example.com.
When: Saturday, October 26, 2013

More I Saw You

WHERE: Chicago Blackhawks game
More I Saw You
You: Strikingly handsome, broad shoulders, neon yellow or green ear buds, a bit unprepared for the weather! Equipped with a passport and euros so putting two & two together: you were just coming back from Europe. Me: Long dark blond hair, blue eyes, just had my flight canceled so heading home. Wearing a black puffy coat and snow boots. I opened the door of the el when we thought we were going to be trapped in the wrong train. I think we exchanged a few looks and wish I would have given you my card, but am a bit shy.
WHEN: Friday, January 24
WHERE: Blue Line from ORD
More I Saw You
You: Hot. Really hot. Traveling with coworkers to Chicago. You work for a big advertising firm. Me: Your stewardess. Our company does not allow me to use your passenger information to track you down. Didn't think to give you my number until a while later. Want to meet me for a drink, coffee, or Wendy's hamburgers? I’d love to hear from you.
WHEN: Thursday, November 28
WHERE: An airplane flying to Chicago
I chatted with you at Big Guys sausage shop in Berwyn around 1:30 AM. You had just come from playing sax at a wedding at Galleria Marchetti in Chicago and looked sharp in a black peacoat and boots. I'd just biked there from a Waco Brothers show at Wire before pedaling home to Logan Square. It would be fun to talk about music some more with you—how about a drink at the Friendly Tap?
WHEN: Sunday, October 27
WHERE: Big Guys sausage shop in Berwyn
Shoplifter for former Park Ridge Walgreens clerk
You had black hair, black painted nails and a sharp demeanor. I shoplifted from the store frequently, wore sunglasses and suspenders. You never mentioned my crimes when I came in with my mom the next day. We made eyes once when I walked out with a collection of shoe products and a tub of ice cream in my messenger bag. The statute of limitations is up on the crime, but not my intentions. Hope you're doing well.
When: Saturday, June 30, 2007. Where: Park Ridge Walgreens. You: Woman. Me: Man. #904417
"The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session," [presiding officer Gregg] Harper [(R-Miss.)] said after Rush left. "The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor."
Rush is lucky he wasn't shot!
Meanwhile, down the road, any prospect of reasonable, affordable health care was being dismantled by another set of old dudes in funny costumes.
Or maybe you're not even searching for Internet love but simply playing the voyeur and dreaming up responses to side-pocket attempts at romance. Either way, I bet you've clicked through posts that are set in your neighborhood.
