familiar "face"

i saw a familiar face.  or at least, i "thought" i saw a familiar face.  out of all the eateries there are in houston, (and believe me, there are plenty, we love to eat!) HE had to walk into mine.  well, not really "mine" per se, but mine in the sense that that is where i was.  he walked in, i noticed HIM immediately.  the face, that sheepish grin, his richard gere, beady eyes, sigh, all at once my heart beat faster, my face got hot, i became a bundle of nerves and i suddenly had an incredible urge  to throw-up.  all that, because i "thought" i saw the familiar face.  it's been over a year since we last saw each other.  so, ready to laugh? it wasn't HIM.  upon getting a closer look, i realized my mistake.  even though a part of me was relieved, another part of me, was truly disappointed.  one of my friends that witnessed the entire scene as it played out, suggested that perhaps i wanted it to be HIM so badly, that i convinced myself it was.  hmm, fair enough.  needless to say, i felt ridiculous and wanted to crawl into a hole and never come back out. 

and this kids, was my saturday afternoon.  i'm ready, commence with the insults, jokes, whatever you got, i deserve it.

Don't beat yourself up. I do that kind of thing all the time. I'm always relieved when it's NOT him.
For a minute there, though, I was hoping you'd say he WAS Richard Gere!
Be well.

I agree with Robyn, well except for the part about Richard Gere.

If I saw my high school girlfriend anywhere I would probably react exactly like you did.

OT- lol

GYC- He was someone that meant and still means the world to me. He'll never know just how much.

JR-Oh, it was not Richard Gere I thought I saw, it was someone that happens to look like him and who also, makes my heart skip a beat.
