Equivalents

Sometimes I will read a personal web site and I think the person behind it is kind of neat and maybe even cute and then I see an aol screenname mentioned and I add it to my little DeadAim buddy list.

And then I’ll notice she’s online all the time but I don’t send an IM or anything because I’m not very good at striking up conversations and I can never think of anything clever to say anyway and it’ll probably just be very awkward.

And I think that that is the online equivalent of seeing some cute girl at a coffee shop every day who you happen to notice is reading one of your favorite books but instead of talking to her you just occasionally steal glances at her while you burn your tongue on the coffee.
