Weird Moments

Have you ever had a weird moment in life? A memorable one at that.

Sometime last year, I had gone to some building known as NSC to pick or drop some papers, one or the other.

On my way out, as I was walking back, absorbed in my thoughts, I looked up to find a man walking towards me.

The only way to describe him is he looked like a Physics Professor. At worst, a Chemistry one. He had facial hair, a lot of facial hair. His clothes were not the neatest; characteristics of one who spends his entire day in a lab coat. And to cap it up, those big glasses.

And so I paid no heed to him..

When we passed each other, he whispered, “I love you.”

It took me a moment to register, and a moment later to react. By then he had put quite a distance between us.

I was shocked, then smiled, then wondered if I had imagined it all. And no, I was not dressed to attract attention, I think the man was deeply disturbed. I looked back at him to find he had disappeared into the building.

  12. weird indeed!

  13. Was he black?I have a hard time in believing that a black guy can have facial hair!! Oh yes,he was disturbed.

    Well, facial hair as in a full beard that joins his sideburns and the big spectacles managed to cover all of his face.

  14. Ï am definite that there is a moral to this story somewhere but I just could not resist this:

    “It took me a moment to register, and a moment later to react. By then he had put quite a distance between us.”

    Am not sure I follow..
