Like, say, a pulse and/or bladder and bowel control. The only thing that will shrink my erection faster than breast implants (or, honestly, implants of any kind) are the words “I’m pregnant and I think you’re the daddy!

” I don’t do fake people, fake food, or cheap knockoff imitations.

I also know the public school system ain’t what it used to be when I was coming up.

However, if you simply must answer a particular ad because she says she just adores the feeling of having man-gravy shot all over her face while her cat licks Nutella from her nipples, read the email carefully.

Before I do that, though, I want to reply publicly to a comment my first post on this blog received.

See, when I wrote my first post, I was coming from the perspective of the dumpee.

Example: “Just so I know you’re for real, please put your star sign in the subject line.” If you don’t get an accurate reply, trash it. Many scammers and marketers are posting ads from different parts of the world.

CL is the Wild West and that’s understood on both sides. I go so far as to ask the recipient to place the answer to the question in the subject header of the next email.

This should be a giant red flag emblazoned with a radiation symbol.
