The universe handed me a golden opportunity, and I blew it.
So I went to a career fair in a school field trip. Everyone had split up to go look around, and we would all meet up in about an hour and a half.
Now absolutely none of the booths there interested me, so I spent my time wondering around and taking note of interesting things I saw. Unique looking people, strange things at booths, stuff like that.
But when I'm walking through the engineering section I pass this girl. She was really tall, had pale skin, long curly bright orange hair, and freckles. (And if I'm being honest she was really cute) I'm thinking she was probably Irish.
Anyway the biggest thing that sticks out to me is that she was frighteningly familiar. I passed by her once or twice before I work up the courage to talk to her.
I walk up to her, get her attention, and ask if I knew her from anywhere. She asks me a few questions about what school I'm from and all that, and that's about it. There was no previous relation. So I think "Alright then. Guess that's that." And walk off.
A few minutes later I realize I could have asked what school she was from, or better I should have asked her what her name was.
I spent at least an hour or so running around the massive convention hall looking to find her again. But to no avail.
I was given golden opportunity, and squandered it all.
