And FINALLY, that brings us to my pen pal ad. How did I do, was it interesting? Say what? Oh, you still haven’t read it. Alright, well, strap on your reading boots, we haven’t got all day.
As you can tell from the bottom part of this page, I have a name, a birth date, a Zodiac sign, and all kinds of way-important info to share. I know that all must have thrilled your face off, but hang on, there’s more! What that didn’t tell you is that I have a whole range of things I like and dislike, things I find interesting, and so on. All the usual stuff guys in these ads say: movies, music, sports, books, travel, cooking……yep, that interests me too. Love all of it. Let’s get away from all the usual stuff, though. Did you know I was once an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue model? (Page 45 in the sock section. That’s me from the knee down. I look good, right?) Or that I’m one of the rare Indians from South Dakota that hasn’t been an extra in a western? How about the fact that I play a meaner jazz flute than Ron Burgundy? Didn’t know none of that, did ya? (Yeah, there’s about 98% chance that I made all of that up just now.)
Point being, let your crazy flag fly if you decide to write, you’re in good company. I was one of those goofy kids that pretty much just grew into a goofy adult, so I’m always gonna enjoy myself as much as I can. I know there’s a time and a place for taking things super-serious, I just choose to always see the bright side of whatever. Anyway, that’s 22 sentences about me, and not a peep out of you. Just sitting there quiet, squinting at your screen like that……well? Your story ain’t gonna tell itself, my friend! Let’s hang out some more, so drop me a line sometime, I can’t wait to hear from you. We talked about me already, now it’s your turn. Go!
