Quite some time ago, I wrote a post about how I Like Jim. Just someone I saw walking to the bus stop every day, but he seemed nice.
After a while, I stopped seeing Jim very often. I didn't really think much of it. Occasionally I would still see him, and we would smile and nod and move on with the day.
Recently I've gotten kind of bored with my walk to the bus stop, so I've been varying my route. It's all based on the lights and walk signals when it's time to cross a street. I just go ahead and go whichever way the Walk signal is currently lit. Once you do this at 3 or 4 different intersections, it gives you several possible routes to get you where you're going. They all take about the same amount of time, so why not?
But now I keep bumping into Jim again. It's not always at the same place, like it was before. It can be a completely different street each time. Jim stills nods, but the smile is not as friendly as it used to be. It makes me wonder - does he think I am following him? Maybe varying my route to seek him out?
I thought about whipping out my phone to take a picture of his slightly suspicious expression yesterday... but decided that would really confirm the stalking theory. ;)
