I was at the Gateway mall with a friend. We were having coffee at the al fresco area of a restaurant and catching up on careers, love lives, and dreams, when my attention was caught by a guy in the near distance. He was waving in my direction. In my mind, I thought that he was waving to someone inside the restaurant, but then there was a dessert bar right behind me. I froze, didn't know how to react.
Was he waving at me? Was he someone I had met once? If so, did I forget? Should I pretend recognition? Gawd, I must've looked like a major snob...
If there's anyone out there who in the past may have waved or smiled at me only to be met by my blank stare, I humbly apologize nang bonggang-bongga. Note that when you do this from a distance, especially if we had met once and only very briefly, a thousand thoughts can run through my head in a second. My hard drive can hang.
It's a very awkward experience, and I hope I haven't been giving anyone any wrong signals.
