Love on the Run

I know many of my readers are single. But maybe you don't have to be. The Viper is here to help. And if you're in the Ann Arbor, Mich., area (hint hint), perhaps you've already run into your love of a lifetime. And guess what? He runs!

From Craigslist personals:
"I was streaking through the Diag Friday night at 2:15 am. Coming around the corner of State and Liberty, fast as a naked blur, I bumped into you and we both fell to the ground. I was a little upset with you at first, cuz I scratched my right butt cheek pretty bad, but I knew it was my fault. You said, "Nice New Balances," And all I could say was, "Thanks," with the adrenaline still rushing. In less awkward circumstances, I would have liked to talk to you. I had never run into a girl that fast or naked before... I didn't know how to respond so I helped you up quickly and kept running. Since my friends paid me $100 for making it to Kerrytown with just my socks, shoes, and a big smile, I'd like to take you on a date. You looked pretty fit so maybe you'd like to go for a run sometime. Hit me up! Bye! [sic]
The clear benefit here if you are this person's missed connection is that you got an eyeful [I'M BLIND!!1!] of the goods -- or perhaps not-so-goods. Hopefully, the butt cheek has healed. Happy hunting. Love will find a way.

[Drunkard's note: Thanks to Gin for head's up.]

college, promoting naked running for 100 years. also, expect this to be in a 2011 summer romance movie.

Isn't Nitmos in that part of the country? Wasn't he doing intervals that night? Hmmmm...

Jess said...

The ad seems to imply that she was naked as well. Seems like a clear cut case of soul mates to me.

Lauren said...

I'm guessing it was not-so-goods, if the first thing she noticed was the new balances.

Hey! are you implying that I'm cruising A2 at 2:00 in the morning? Never!

I was going to say, there's no way this could be real...but they I thought, well, it is Ann Arbor. Anything is possible. Or would that be Impossible is Nothing?

Sláinte! ;)

*oh yeah, my first post-race rehydration took place at the Flat Iron Cafe on the east bank of the Flats. One pint of Smithwick's at the pub followed by a 22-oz Young's Double Chocolate Stout on the deck at my parents' and I wasn't feeling the burn quite as bad.

And they say romance is dead.
