That said, I’m back (still lugging my “pal” Apathy but I won’t let him get in the way (too much)) and present for you the new Snark-o-rific contest:
Who hit on me best last week?
Each of the following snippets is an actual IM opening from a random stranger to me during the day. Feel free to vote (in the comments section) on which one showed the most style, class and creativity in hitting on me. The names have been changed (theirs, anyway) to protect the
(And btw, I am amused by all of the myriad ways guys work around to hitting on me, so don’t write me 87 ways to avoid these conversations. I like them. Gives me lots of snark material. Just vote, mmmm k??)
