I know that many of our readers, like Jon and I, are avid readers. I also suspect many of you, like us, when lacking for something that we want or need to read, will read whatever happens to be within reach.
I recently found myself reading a local entertainment guide, for lack of anything else to read while eating lunch. I’m sure most of you are familiar with such a guide. They contained a few restaurant reviews, a couple of articles on various community events and a couple of pages of clubs and music venues. And most such guides it seems also have a personals section at the back, as this one did.
Within a few minutes I had read all the articles, skimmed through the listings and found myself reading the personal ads (purely out of having nothing else to read I assure you.)
Under “couples for couples”, I came across an ad that made me laugh out loud and which clearly demonstrates the need for the services of someone with the right skills set, in this case an editor.
This personal ad read,
“Married couple seeks same. Woman must be pretty, sexy and sensual. Man must be muscular, handsome and well in doubt.”
