Hands off, lecherous geezer!

A good friend of mine just sent me this interesting Craigslist DC personals ad, asking me Did you post this???? Now why would she be thinking that?

Because I “prefer to meet up for coffee or a beer, as opposed to lengthy email exchanges” or even dinner? Or that I’m “a bit older, but looks younger and relates to all ages”? Or just “attractive, active, fit, fun and open minded”?

Alas, while I could stand in for the writer, it’s not I. No, I learned my cradle-robbing lesson long ago with this great “hands off, lecherous geezer” email from a friend’s much younger sister:

I am deeply flattered but I just cant face the ridicule, jokes, and other horrible comments that will come with me going out with one of my brother’s friends. If that isn’t reason enough, just think that when you were a freshmen in college and chasing sorority girls in skirts, I was in the fourth grade, learning about the reproductive system for the very first time.

Nice, eh? So good luck to the SWM, may he be luckier than I. May we all.

    Oh Wayan, you have made my day. I don’t feel as bad about being The Old Guy in the club knowing that you got that email. Brutal.

    Mind you, being on the reciving end of that kind of snark would have just ME want her all the more so anyone considering such a brush-off should consider the desired consequences…

    Yeah, that made her a class act in my eyes, saying “no” with style, grace, and clarity.

    In my reply I did tell her that if she changd her mind, maybe when she’s being bored by some young punk yapping about the Simpson’s, Jessica not Bart, or he thinks a microwave is a central kitchen applicane, but not a sponge and a sink, and forgets that flowers can make a girls’s day, she should give me call.

    Still waiting for that call….

    Geezer? You? Hell, I got hit on by Santa Claus at Gordon Biersch last night…

    Santa? Ew.

    The creepiest herous geezer I’ve ever seen was this AARP-eligible dude who, seeking a Katie Holmes of his very own, showed up at a mutual friend’s house party and planted himself right near the keg to entrap any young lady who came over in search of beer. Seeing as how it’s exceedingly rare that I date men on the other side of 30 from me, let alone whatever decade he’s in, I thought about telling the creep to step off and leave the cradle robbing to me, but instead I avoided Grandpa and enlisted guys who don’t need arthritis medicine yet to refresh my beer.
