I was walking in my own thoughts the other day.
It was a beautiful sunny day and I had just been to a meeting with a colleague and was on my way back to my office - which is in another building from 'the mother ship'. I was thinking about boring work issues and not really paying attention to anything or anyone around me.
As I neared my office building a man coming towards me suddenly lent over to me and
whispered seductively as we passed each other
'have you missed me'...?
And then he carried on walking in the opposite direction of me.
As I said, I was completely in my own world and it took a few seconds before I comprehended that he had spoken to me and what he had actually said. I stopped dead in my tracks and spun around to see who it was, but by then he had disappeared in the crowd of people walking in the sunshine.
There was no point trying to run after him to see who it was as I couldn't for the life of me remember what he looked like.
I started laughing.
I guess I would have had a very different reaction if it had been in the evening in a dark street, but in broad daylight on a busy street it just seemed funny.
It gave me the giggles like a teenage girl.
And no, I can't really say I have missed anyone except perhaps my own Professor who was not in town.
I am 100% sure it was neither him nor

There is also the possibility that perhaps the man was talking on the phone...?
