I did not meet the woman of my dreams


For years, when travelling on the tube, I dreamt of meeting the woman of my dreams by sitting opposite her when we were both reading the same book. We'd both glance up at the same moment, realise what the other was reading and live happily ever after.

Disclaimer: I should point out at this stage that this is all a bit academic because I have already met the woman of my dreams. Please don't kill me. :-)

Anyway, this desire went unfulfilled despite my best efforts. But today it finally happened! I got on the Northern line at London Bridge, sat down, opened my book, glanced up to see the person sitting opposite me was reading the same book as me, and exchanged meaningful glances with each other.

Murphy's Law dictates that this person was male, but that's life. Better luck next time.
