Humor, creativity and snark. Evidence of such before digital social media. How did this happen?
Spend a few bucks for an ad,take another cheap shot at your Honey. Saving it IS weird, though.
Brilliant. I know more than one young man that feels that way today.
I bet somewhere someone has posted that as his own on "Best of Craigslist"
"I want my albums back!"- Sam Kinison
Does he want her back or not? At first you think, he wants her back, he's completely sincere, overly romantic. (My reaction: that's not going to work). And then he gives the punchline. So now he's undercut all his sincerity. Irony! I don't miss you at all. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. I miss my television. But he wrote it. He spent money on it. He went to a lot of effort to tell this woman he does not miss her. In fact he's announcing to the whole world that he does not miss her. (My reaction: that's really not going to work).
Got to admit, the guy had a (nasty) sense of humor. Sue made the right decision in dumping him. I bet she kept the TV, too.
One of my favorite Heinleins is Glory Road (it's not very typical of him in some ways), in which the personal ads play a significant part. For YEARS after I first read it in middle school, I'd search for, then SIGH for personal ads that were that interesting.
