I decided on Wednesday that I was not going to post any more ads on craigslist (at least not for many moons)...mostly because I e-mailed one guy a couple of times, then said I wasn't interested and he went off on me saying that he figured that something like this would happen with a vegetarian (apparently being a pagan, tattooed or liberal wasn't a problem, but not eating meat was).
Anyway, someone else had responded and I've been bouncing e-mails with this individual, culminating in weirdness today, so I thought I would share the entire exchange (I'll call this individual, since I can't verify gender, "yahoo"):
yahoo: wow, very intriguing words.
spinster:Thanks...are you interested or just commenting?
yahoo: I just thought what you wrote was very intriguing... is that a hobby or something...?
spinster:The poem in my ad is by Randall Jarrell. Although I do sometimes write poetry, it is not at all in the same league as him.
yahoo (this is the e-mail from today...):once there was a lady,
whom did feel shady.
She partook in a shake,
but only did bake,
geez... why doesn't she just decide to be awake.
wakey... wakey... hon... you ain't in the kansas [desert] anymore... lol...
I am clueless as to what this means - and I'm really just over it.
