In The City section of last Sunday's New York Times, I found this personal ad. I love how she puts it all on the table:
46, ww, catholic, mother of two, DD free, out of shape with sags in all the right places, 5'8", gray, blond, and blue. Loves books, autumn, fresh/salw swimming, a clean-shaven man, sunrise, stone work. Likes off beat humor, fresh/salt fishing, salad, winter, the premise of theology. Dislikes Italian food, super-string theory, blinking X-mas lights, Friday Times puzzle. Abhors raisins, sarcasem, headbands on bald babies. ISO S/WW gentleman who is quiet-spoken, has quiet strengths of character and an intelligent, knowing twinkle in his eyes.
