Wednesday night you saved my life... Amir/Jon Jon from TX

Postby dangerpin » Wed Oct 10, 2012 5:44 pm

Robot Heart. Wednesday night, The night of Damian Lazarus.....

I was very close to being sexually assaulted (or raped) by a man twice my size. This other man dressed up as Yoshi (Mario Cart) saved my life. I can't find him.... I've looked high and low. Should I give up? Are some relationships only meant for the playa?

Sometimes you meet someone just once, and they change they evoke in your life is a large one--no less meaningful for all its brevity.

He did something great for you, and he probably feels pretty positive about it. The odds are small you'll find him, but it's up to you whether you keep looking. No one can make that decision for you.

Anyway, I'm glad you weren't hurt.

Let me know if you want me to put "Yoshi (Mario Cart)" in your headline, there. (I'd put it in there, if I were you. Maybe someone knows him.)

I would really appreciate it! We had made plans to meet the next night at Robot Heart, but there were twice as many people... I never found him. I feel like I've hit a brick wall in looking.

For anyone else reading. This is what I DO KNOW about Yoshi.

I edited your subject line in case anyone might recognize his name.

You might try googling whiskey distilleries in Texas. There might be a manageable number to research. :)

I did :( There are only 7. Nobody knows who he is!


I'm debating going backpacking in Texas. It can't be much hotter than BRC right? Lol.

Heh! Rest stops are closer together at the Burn. :)

But I thought of one more thing. Send email about Amir to the Texas mailing lists. Someone might know him.

The playa provides...
You may never forget that night but neither will I.

That night we celebrated at robot heart as good overcame evil. when you looked over at me with eyes that said this wasn't right -that was all it took.

I am amazed you remembered so much about me, the distillery hasn't gone public thats why you couldnt find it-but I am overwhelmed with love that you were searching and didn't give up. Here I am.

Contact me at 9727651915

YAY!

**gasp** Beautiful! It's amazing how this story unwound!!

We (almost) all know how beautifully meloncholic these missed connection could be...
Year and a half ago, I joined eplaya looking for a missed connection. Of course that didn't transpire, but I still remember every single detail about that person.
Sigh...

**hugs dangerpin, yoshi, and felixz96* I am happy to have witnessed this happy, happy experience!!
Excuse me while I bask in this moment :)
