How many times have you had an encounter with someone—whether face-to-face, over the phone, via the Internet, or even through snail mail—that was so remarkable that all you could feel was to be wonderstruck?
wonderstruck – adjective: (of a person) Experiencing a sudden feeling of awed delight or wonder
I want to thank Taylor Swift and Adam Young for making that word big. Really. Why? Because that is my word for the day. Forgive me if I write like Taylor Swift when she was in high school but I cannot get over a recent encounter that I had. I haven’t had butterflies in my stomach for quite a while, and I am amused with the fact that I apparently can still feel this way.
And the whole entire way home, I just remember the glittery New York City buildings passing by and then just sitting there thinking, am I ever gonna talk to this person again? It was that feeling of pining away for a romance that may never even happen, but all you have is this hope that it could, and the fear that it never will.
That pretty much was how I felt—except that I had no glittery NYC buildings to remember. I ask myself whenever I get some free time to think if I’ll have an encounter with this person again. It’s sorta sad to think that there’s no reason to run smack into each other if you don’t go to the same office, if you don’t have a common project, or if you don’t even have any means to contact one another.
All you can do is to wish and hope and pray that the encounter was just the first page and not where the story ends because seriously, it was enchanting to meet that person.
Random thoughts then enter your mind. Does the person know that I was enchanted to meet him? Is he in love with someone else? Does he have somebody waiting on him? You’re not necessarily in love with the person but it definitely wouldn’t suck if he’s not in love with anyone else.
And maybe—just maybe—one day, that person would be at my door to say “hey, it was enchanting to meet you too”. And yeah, that’ll probably make my entire day.
Sorry, I’m such a smitten little kitten.
