so, this letter comes in the mail addressed to "current

"The Right One is a relationship company dedicated to
providing the utmost effort in helping you meet The Right One. We
have the best people in the industry who recognize how important it is for
you, as a single person, to have a special relationship in your life.
However, in today's busy world, it gets more and more difficult for you to
find the time to search for The Right One."
included is a Confidential Screening Profile Form. "This
preliminary questionnaire is designed to provide key combatibility factors
concerning you and the person you would like to meet."
one of the questions is, "What is your social situation?" choices
are: dating various people, not dating anyone, new to the area, too busy to
meet eligible people, in a dead-end relationship, recently ended a
no choice for "dating someone, but he's the devil. no, really."

This tainted pie I've eaten

"rick said if she's still here, not to do anything. if she's not
here, turn off the lights and lock the door."

"she can hear you. she has a name. and it is dawn. and she knows
you should know that, because she heard rick telling you."
i heart my office.
