Just because you can...

...Doesn't mean you should.

Riding the bus last night to meet some friends for dinner, I innocently turn my head to look at the back of the bus, because I like to be aware of my surroundings.

I accidentally make eye contact with a stranger (I try not to...)

He winked at me.

Awkward. Uncomfortable. Heart racing (not in the "I'm so flattered!" way, in the "I'm gonna die, I just know it." way). Breaths shortening. Anxiety rising.

My stop is up.

He follows me off the bus.

I pull out my cell phone. "Jon! Either you or your wife needs to let me in your apartment NOW. Please. Just. Be. There. Right. Now. Thanks."

Crisis averted.
