So I am at LAX on my way back home from a conference in LA. I was walking down the concourse to my gate when for some reason a women standing next to two bags near the restroom caught my eye.
It is one of those moments that turned from boredom of listening to background airport music to excitement when the women catching my eye turns out to someone I recognize from my past. Within 20 feet away I slowed as she looks like my old girlfriend Cate from when I lived in Kansas City. Within another step or two I quickly remember that Kate moved to LA and got married. The likelihood of that being her went way up.
I slowed my pace down even more and started to approach her, “Yes, that is her” I said to myself. Now standing right in front of her I stopped and studied her face, she turns and looks at me.
I didn’t say anything for a couple of seconds while we both look at each other, I was expecting her to shout out in surprise “Dave!” but she didn’t say anything and now my confidence in that being her dropped slightly.
So I said rather slowly, “Kate?”
She said, “Yes?” Looking confused that this stranger knew her name.
So I was right! But why doesn’t she recognize me.
So then I said, “Are you Cate (lastname)? She said, “No”.
But I know she got married so that was probably true that was not her name anymore but she still didn’t know who I was.
Now I felt like a might be intruding so I said “You look exactly like someone I dated for awhile, I’m sorry to bother you”. I stood there waiting for a few more seconds just to make sure that she wasn’t kidding around with me.
I couldn’t help looking back at her several times as she waited by the men’s room. I sat down in a place where I could still see her and watched as a man she new came out of the bathroom that collected the other bag. As they walked away I could she was reenacting the encounter to him.
I kept shaking my head, am I losing my mind? Did she have a brain injury and not remember me, is she in the witness protection program – that was her, I know it!
So I called my old friend that had her cell number and I called her. I thought it would fun to follow her and then watch her pull out her phone while I called her number. But no one ever picked up.
I went to the Boulder Running Company and had my running style video taped (Jim) and found I was on the wrong running shoes.
My feet have been hurting me the past month so lets hope this fixes it.
I think they were $107, more than my other Brooks I had.
I had a slow leak in a tire so I took it in to the shop and they used a plug instead of a patch. They said that plugs work just as well as patches. A plug is much easier because you do not have to pull the tire off the rim.
