Okay, lets get this out of the way nice and quick. The thoughts presented in this comic are, unfortunately, accurate.

About 18-24 months ago there was this girl came into my place of work. I don’t know whether any of you have experienced this before, but it was one of those ‘lightning bolt’ moments. I took one look at her and was instantly smitten.

I suspect that most people I know would suggest that this is a common occurrence for me. It’s not. While it’s hardly uncommon for me to find a woman attractive, this was only the second occasion in which I immediately deteriorated into a congealed puddle of ‘ga-ga’ upon first viewing.

Anyway, she continued to visit another half-dozen times or so and then I never saw her again. Until this week.

I’d always told myself that if I saw her again I’d have to do something. That I couldn’t just let it go, and professionalism be damned. If I had even the slightest chance of being with this girl that I had to take it.

So, after eighteen months I finally see her again. In a car. Stopped next to mine. At a set of traffic lights. Turning in different directions. With four minutes to go until I started work.

So what do I do? If I don’t act on this chance I’ll probably never see her again.

I came very close to deciding to crash my car.
