Missed Connections: Paint Store Sweeper & Grocery Store Singer

Happy Valentine's Day from Moorpark Patch. Here's our attempt at helping Cupid out.

Ever wondered what would have happened had you just said "hello" and initiated a conversation with him? Or had just asked for her number? Not often, but occasionally, you get a second chance.

Craigslist offers a chance to establish a connection with someone with whom you've crossed paths, though it takes both a person to post a note and the right person to read it.

It can happen. After all, one recent Craigslist poster said, though admitting it sounds corny, "I check these missed connections several times a week . . . Whenever I see a woman in the mall or the grocery store that I think may have smiled at me or if we did a little innocent flirting in the checkout line, I will keep my fingers crossed that maybe she'll post on here. For some reason I just think that meeting that way would make a great story."

And at Patch, we love a good story! So, while odds are slim, we thought we'd help Cupid out and post some recent lost connections specific to Moorpark. You can find the whole Ventura County list here, but note: listings can get racy.

Paint Store: Hey. Saw you this morning (Friday) sweeping the paint store as I walked into the bank. You were laughing and beautiful and I'd love to get to know you.

Bank of America: I saw you today (Feb. 1) at the Bank of America in Moorpark. You walked into the bank while I was standing at the ATM; totally caught me off guard when you walked in and I forgot what I was doing. You pulled up next to me in a gray Honda Accord at the traffic light and looked over at me, again catching me off guard.

Singing the same song: I was in the grocery store yesterday afternoon (Jan. 24) and they were playing "How To Save A Life" by the Fray. I started singing along to myself, which is unusual for me, and then I heard someone else singing the same song. It was you. You were with a guy who probably wasn't your brother, which was a bummer because you struck me as interesting. Oh well. In the unlikely event you see this, tell me what store we were in so I know it's you.
