I met the most beautiful man, and he was working in the store right next to mine.
I kept watching him whenever he walked by, but I didn’t think he noticed me.
He was gorgeous and he was well put together. He drove the cutest little red car, and I had no idea how he was able to get his tall muscled body into that car. I wondered if he would even want to go out with someone like me. I was plain and overweight. Then, one day I walked into him, and I mean literally walked into him. He seemed taken with my eyes as he continued to look into them. He asked me if I wanted to go for dinner. Even without giving him my name or asking his, I said yes. I scribbled my address onto the napkin he handed me and I handed it back. He stared into my eyes as he told me he couldn’t wait until tonight. That’s when I woke up from my dream. I was shivering with anticipation in my dream, but I was shivering when I awoke. The heating had gone out in my apartment building. I heard commotion in the hallway and I walked out. The heating was out, the lighting was the emergency lighting. I called my girlfriend and asked if I could come over there until the power came on and the heating began to work again. She said her furnace was running and I should hurry over before the snow got worse. At least I was going to have heating for the night. I knew I would never get another date from the stranger in my dreams.
