"I Saw You" Makin’ My Muffins

Who saw? Who was seen? Was it you?

"I believe the world to be a muffin pan, and there certainly are a lot of muffins here." Aaron Funk | Reply for free or see more “I Saw You” posts at alibi.com/personals.

Blond at Smiths with Bright Pink shoes and shirt. UNM

You said, "I think they fucking heard it" as you passed by me. You have a large back tattoo and are probably the coolest chick in this burg. I'd like you to know that the sight of you caused my heart to jump out of my chest and I had to chase all over the damn parking lot for an hour before I could catch it. I trapped it with some peanut butter and a box. My heart now resides safely back where it belongs but the image of you will stay with me for a long time. Signed, "Some Old Fuck." View post

Ain't Muffin Around

You were my go-to when I needed a quick cuppa Joe.

The muffins were what I deemed to be a "glorified cupcake minus frosting."

Last week my heart broke, that sign glaring me in the face…

Shut down…

Who will be my muffin man now?

Will you reopen, or can we recipe swap, Just Muffin Around?

Maryland

Had a random friendly conversation with you walking up the stairs about the weather in Maryland where you're from. I wish I had least introduced myself. Let me know if you ever get bored, far from home. View post

Marble, September 5

You and I exchanged several glances. You were with your friend that had the baby, and I was with a couple of friends at the same table. I was wearing the red shirt. Sorry I was too shy to say hello. When I finally mustered up the courage you were gone. I'd like another chance to talk to you. View post
