I'm glad I follow my own advice...

... because it came in handy yet again!

Remember waaaaaaaay back when, when I wrote this post about never leaving your house looking like a pig because you never know when you might run into an ex?

And you know how I always say Cleveland is two degrees of separation, right?

Well, those two little nuggets came into play last week when I ran into a blast from my dating past.

Not that he'd remember.

That's right, ladies and gents. I saw Amnesia Guy.

Picture it. Third quarter of a Cavs game. I had just finished my second (double) gin and tonic and wanted to hit the little girls' room before the game let out. So I left my boy toy at the seats (which were SICK, by the way), made my way up the stairs and turned the corner to head toward the ladies room.

And there he stood. Amnesia Guy. Stuffing popcorn down his throat and wearing what some might consider a Cosby sweater. He was clearly waiting for someone to come out of the ladies' room, and after the ridiculous email exchange that went down with him last summer (seriously... if you don't remember/know the back story with him and didn't click on that link up there, do yourself a favor and go check it out now) I had nothing to say to him.

So you're probably asking, "Why are you telling us this story if you didn't even talk to him, AAB?" Well, my point is this, ladies: you never know when you might see an ex (even in a sea of 20,000 of your closest friends at an arena), so it's best to be a good scout and always be prepared.

Because while I was looking all sassy in my cropped velvet blazer and cute little booties, he... well... was wearing that unfortunate sweater. (With popcorn all over it.)

I bet he wishes *I* were the one with amnesia now.

Have you ever had a run-in with an ex when he (or -- gasp! -- you) looked like a wreck?

No but every time I see you, I look like a hot mess---in yoga gear leaving Market, more workout clothes at Target. Luckily I found out my most recent ex moved to Seattle----I am safe.

Suzanne -- Stop it. You do NOT look like a hot mess. (And if you do, I've never noticed!)

Omg that is insane! I love that he was wearing an ugly sweater...poor guy [not].

I ran into a guy at the grocery once when I had no makeup on and hadn't fixed my hair. Of course this story has a good ending b/c we ended up hanging out for weeks, before I moved to Cali. That night at the store was the first time I'd seen him in over a year!

I ran into a very serious ex boyfriend while touring hotels for my family to stay at for our wedding in Vail. I was walking around with my wedding planner, my fiance etc. and I saw this guy at the bar that looked familiar- HOLY SHIT IT WAS MY EX BOYFRIEND! And? I looked HORRIBLE. No make up, greasy hair, and the worst sin of all? I was wearing a velour track suit.

No, but I ALWAYS run into my boyfriend's ex when I just left the gym, ran out to do a quick errand and didn't put in too much effort, sweating like a pig at a summer street festival, etc. Not fun!
