Death to Viruses!

UPDATE FROM THE FRONT:

The virus, germ, bacteria, bug, whatever that's been attacking my family is officially in "retreat" mode. Hurrah for the good guys! We have withstood the assault and are now truly on the mend.

[insert patriotic song of your choice]

Unfortunately, the battle has left Mama Writer with piles of work that require immediate action. Consequently, blog postings might be sporadic for the next few days.

I leave you today with the body of a recently posted "men seeking women" advertisement on our local Craigslist.org page. Please feel free to rip it apart... I find it most disturbing as well as more than a little bit pathetic.

Subject Line: I watched you excersize - Fairfield Inn - m4w - 40

Hi, I was in the pool, I watched you work out around 9:30 pm, I am staying in the same place, if you would like to share a cup of tea and some company ring my room #216, we are on briarsdale road, I was the only one there, 5 11 190 short hair, 40.

If you were that woman, would you feel comfy-cozy contacting this stranger who "watched you" "excersize"?

YIKES.

I just read your entry at Clarity of Night and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your wicked sense of humor.

I'm stopping in for the same reason as Jaye. In fact, let me just copy and paste what she said:

Szelsofa: You had me laughing so hard with your comment! That's great!

Jaye: Awwww... that's so sweet of you to say. I'm glad you liked my interpretation of Satan as kind of a bitter, pissed off CEO of Hades.

Church Lady: I shouldn't be surprised that you like a story about... oh... I don't... could it be... SATAN?!?
