Fireman cutie today west housatonic st station (Pittsfield)

I couldn’t help but notice you while I was cleaning my car across the street. You are hot and manly tall dark and handsome young fireman. I’ve never tried posting like this before. Recently single, not looking for anything public or serious … but I’d love a little time to romp around and play with you as a fun distraction. Again, I’ve never done this before. What color is your truck? The one with the sexy silver toolboxes along the tail. Feb. 7, 2017

Stop and Shop Edelman jersey boy — w4m (Hadley)

I think we appreciated that we were both wearing Edelman jerseys, and then ended up in the same checkout isle. You watched me fumble trying to put my basket away. I was finished first so I walked slowly hoping you’d catch up, and you did. You walked completely in the wrong direction of your own car and it was so cute to watch you walk two car lanes to your own. Please say hi. Tell me the color of your car and some groceries you bought (I looked). Feb. 6, 2017

I was back working there. You left carrying something heavy with someone. Later, you came back and went to sit not far from me. Your eyes were covered with bandages as if you’d had some treatment. The dynamics with us were the same as in real life — the walls between. Feb. 1, 2017
