It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and I could think of no better way to celebrate the holiday than to gift myself some chocolate and watch a twisted Valentine’s Day horror B-movie. I caught Into the Dark: Down on Hulu for some standard low-budget “stuck in an elevator with a psycho stalker over Valentine’s Day weekend” entertainment. It was perfect.
Also, I enjoyed sifting through my collection of Missed Connections subject lines to put together a Missed Connections Exquisite Corpse poem. I don’t need to say “Valentine’s Day edition,” because every day is Valentine’s Day for people who post in Missed Connections. It’s the nature of MC to attract the lonely and the wistful and the starry-eyed. Valentine’s Day is as much for the lovelorn as it is for lovers, after all.
These MCEC poems are always written by others, as you regular readers know. I’ve simply adopted the habit of browsing the Craigslist section every day or every other day to pluck out any subject lines that may catch my eye.
Many thanks to the 16 anonymous writers who posted to Missed Connections with these subject lines!
Missed Connections Exquisite Corpse, 10
We’ve met twice
Black Dress at Casa Corazon
In red at The Desert Diamond Casino
Want to get to know you
Saw you last evening
You drove by and said “thanks….”
Stop light confession
Crossed paths in hallway
About a month ago
It was magic
Lost you in Belvidere
While we were walking
A dart on a map
Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends.
p.s. Happy Birthday, Arizona, you great state 48, you! 109 years old on Valentine’s Day!
