Are writers sexy?
Can one use one's writing skills to attract members of the opposite sex? I'm trying to think of the last playmate who listed "writing" in her profile.
Ah...yes...pimping the writing.
You know, I used to walk into a bar and sidle up to a fox, one hand in my belt, one hand toying suggestively with the gold chain I wore about my neck. With the disco ball spinning and Barry
White crooning in the background, I would wait until the right moment and then whip out a page of manuscript.
"Um..." she would usually respond, eyeing the paper with curiousity as a flush rose from her throat to her cheeks.
"Yeah...I....write," I would respond. "I write....a lot. Wanna see?"
I never waited for a response. Instead, I would craft a word, right there in front of her. Using a Bic medium point black ink pen, I'd write something like: "Hammer" or "Screw".
Nouns..go for the jugular, I thought. Stay away from the adjectives and verbs. Women want something they can wrap their hands around.
If she nibbled at this bait, I would offer to take her back to the apartmentand write an entire sentence. Compound.
You're a writer, you work with what you have. Are writers sexy? You bet your adjective.
