Mistaken Identity

I was very nearly arrested for assault today.

Coming up from the Metro, I saw a man coming toward me. His manner of walking, his hair, the build of his body all looked very, very familiar to me. I grinned and started to change course so that I could intercept him with a joyous hug. I was so excited to see him here unexpectedly! I wondered what brought him here from Harrisburg...

Then I realized that it wasn't Joel.

Thank God I didn't get more than a few steps toward him. I doubt that he even noticed the crazed law student heading toward him. His day continued as planned and he remained blithely unaware that he was very nearly the victim of an unwanted touching.

are you sure it is "unwanted touching?"

I am pretty sure he would have been very flattered by a beautiful woman's "unexpected, but more-than-welcome" touching -
