You know those times in life that you reflect and think, “Am I on the right path?” Then you realize that you are not. In fact, you’re no longer on the path. You are off in the bushes somewhere, picking razzleberries. Those aren’t even real, so you must be waaay off that path in a desert oasis, hallucinating.
Sometimes that’s where I am.
I was recently looking for a bike trailer, and a friend suggested Craigslist. I hadn’t been on in years, but maaaan, have I been missing out. Go to Craigslist, look under “personals,” then “missed connections.” They’re not all PG, so I have done the dirty work for you. Read them. It will make you feel so much better about your life. I may be off the path sometimes, but at least I’m still on the same planet.
Here is a nice compilation from around the Craigslist globe that I have collected while shirking my laundry duties.

D.C. was a little more professional.
Some people confuse Craigslist with their diary.
Miami. I love you, Miami.
