Meet two single parents who think they're too busy to date.
And two teenagers who can't stop writing flirty emails.
This is a tale of connectionsmissed and madein a universe that seems to have its heart set on reuniting Ms. 6B and Mr. 13C.
I can't believe I picked up the wrong bag at the airport. My dad is never going to let me hear the end of it.
I don't understand why Mom told me to pack my worst underwear. And now I've lost my bag? Ack!
I cannot stop thinking about that woman in seat 6B on the flight to Paris.
I don't have time to worry about the creep sitting in 13C who slipped a note in my purse. I have to find my daughter's missing bag before this ruins our vacation.
