After a long while, I’ve found the time, and more importantly, the spirit, to post something here. For a considerable period of time now, things hadn’t been smooth sailing. In this time of turmoil, which, alas, hasn’t passed completely yet, there were a million things that I wanted to share here. Many questions to ask, some answers to give. But that couldn’t happen. I still hope that, soon enough, I’ll be able to address them.
This, however, is getting published. It is another email forward (the other, if you missed it, is here) and one that, perhaps, is funnier than the previous one.
These are actual ads taken from a leading matrimonial website of guys searching for brides. The grammar and spelling, are, of course, of no significant consequence to these posters – everything is straight from the heart! I only hope you don’t forget yours at the end of this. By the way, I’ve not made any changes to the post, but have edited the bracketed comments from the original email.
Hope you laugh, and laugh bad!

(Woman of the lamp! Can anyone tell me what this boy wants?)

Most people who I ask to read my blog tell me that it is either too serious, or with words that require a dictionary. While there is little I can do about the former, and the latter is more a reflection on the reader than me, I can do something – and that something is bring humour. Which, I think, is what you’ll find this post filled with. This is a remain of the, thankfully, forgotten species of email forwards.
It is one of the few genuinely funny ones, and must’ve been produced by a mind more attuned to humour than mine – so, I claim no right on its authorship, and similarly, by nature of its being a forward, negate all claims of copyright violation. Cheers!
