Brief Encounter

I was waiting to catch the ferry, and I sat down across from this beautiful woman. While I was reading my book, I would glance at her as she sat there with her kids. She was talking to another lady about some different things, including talk taking a trip to Vegas with her girlfriends. As people do when they talk to people around them, she would alternately look at the lady she was talking to, pay attention to her kids, and then glance at me. I talked to her briefly outside before getting on the ferry. She did not get on. She was dropping off her kids. She said she lived in a nearby town and worked in a bar in the town I work in. She was very attractive, and I would really like to meet her again.
