A Tale of Hoffman

He was engrossed in a book, so I decided not to disturb him.

There I was at the mall bookstore, browsing, when standing right next to me was Dustin Hoffman!

I could not believe it. What should I do? He was engrossed in a book, so I decided not to disturb him. However, as he moved about the store, I must admit I stalked him.

Feeling guilty, I left him alone and walked away. I will always regret that I never said, "Hello, Dustin, I love your movies." Sometimes opportunities come and we let them slip by, and regret lingers, lifting its ugly head every time something reminds us of an opportunity lost and gone.

So Dustin, if you are out there, I am the blonde at the bookstore who almost said hello.
