I made an unwitting mistake when I blundered into James at the lunch counter—I was unaware of his presence. Since I really did like him, and was often wishing to speak with him, my unwitting or unintentional error made it look like I had planned it. James, however, said that it was no big deal, and believed me when I told him that I had unwittingly or unknowingly run into him, being completely unaware of his whereabouts.
