Dear Tired Mom,
I read your tale from start to finish, and all I could think of was..."Wow, here's a woman who's responsible and hard working." Then I found myself fantasizing about your shapely form and thought what it would be like to lay naked next to you in your shitty one bedroom apartment. Sharing a small dollar store bowl of Mac & Cheese. Followed by an afternoon of dirty lovemaking on your 70's style tiled floor. You know...The one where all the cockroaches fuck when you're not looking. So if you're looking for something fun to do on Friday night, leave me a message here. I'll give your kid a roll of shiny new quarters and a DVD of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. For a classy girl like you, how about a fuck and a hotdog, Whatta ya say?
PS: I am enclosing a picture of me. I hope you will look at it with your heart instead of your eyes. LOL
