Metro Times makes the connection

Share on Nextdoor
After we asked everybody to share their worst New Year’s Eve stories, we had a ball reading through them. One of the funniest came from former Metro Times staffer Jen Lumpkin, who shared this doozy:

One New Year's Eve, I was a "Kiss Sandwich" — it's true and tragic! I thought a guy was coming up to give me a New Year's Eve kiss and the clock was counting down. This gorgeous 6-foot-tall man was walking my way. I thought it was my moment, until I felt something touch my back. When I looked up I saw that an equally gorgeous 6-foot-tall girl was receiving my kiss. I am only 4-foot-10. So right above my head, lingered two tall pretty people kissing with me in the middle. Kiss sandwiched!

So imagine our surprise when Lumpkin got in touch to point out this Craigslist post:

Jen 4'10, the meat in a kiss sandwich - 31

How about a chance to redo your New Year's moment? Here's a six-footer who promises to never look past you. All it takes is an email.

See, sometimes it pays to share. And with two home slices poised to come together, we’d say 2010 is already looking promising.
