Missed opportunity

Life gives you so many opportunities and yet we miss them owing to plain inaction. I guess it is true what they say - Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

Am having a neat time here in Chennai and as part of my usual errands I was at HSB Fast Food Ashok Nagar for my breakfast. Like every now-and-then there was a pretty face who I kept eying on for a bit. No harm for I don't remember once having seen the same person again.

As I was bored waiting for my food I turned around at her and noticed her looking in my direction. (I wouldn't wanna get into thinking it was me.) I got my food and I took the same aisle as her but facing the other way for no particular reason. Perhaps to avoid it. Time pass over and I was relishing my breakfast.

And then I noticed her leaving for the wash and I realized it was "The End" as always. But to my surprise it wasn't. She came back for her coffee and this time stood right next to me. And I pretended not to be bothered and finished my pooris slowly and moved on. And I even managed to notice her staring at me for a bit standing just besides.

And then I was done and it was "THE END". For some strange reason I kept wondering why she kept starring at me? I wasn't even wearing any trousers without the zippers on or anything. But it made me wonder if I just missed an opportunity.

Yeah, I stood like an Idiot. Had it been one of my friends they'd have probably tried a pick up line and at least given a try. One of the handicaps of being nerdish.

The good thing is that this incident brought an interest in me for the so called pick-up lines :D. Any pointers? See, I am expanding ;). Only its too late. Darn these fantasies!
