Miss Right at the check-out counter?


Dear Hillary,

I see a lot of girls in my local shopping center, and many are quite nice.  I see them resting on the seats.  I know you say we older farangs should stay away from the bars, but will I find Miss Right in the shopping center?  Or do I have to lie about my age (I’m a pensioner) and go back to university?  What should I do?  I’m getting tired of being lonely.

Dear Lonely Larry,

What shower did you come down in, my lonely Petal?  Must have been the last one.  Will you find Miss Right waiting on the bench for you at the supermarket?  No Larry, you will only find Miss Take there.  Mistake if you talk to her and Miss Take all your money by the time you reach the checkout counter.  These are freelance girls who can disappear very easily and you will never find where she went or came from (other than Aisle B next to the hot dog counter).  They are more dangerous than the girls from the bars.  At least Hello Sexy Man bar will still be there tomorrow, and the mamasan knows the ID of her girls.  As far as lying about your age, that’s not such a bad idea.  I heard of one 70 year old chap, when seen walking down the street with a cute 17 year old, told his friends it was easy.  “I lied about my age.  I told her I was 95!”  If you are getting really desperate, talk to the girls in the optical stores.  They are all well dressed and university graduates.  You must be needing glasses at your age, so you’ve got a good excuse for being there.  They also do eye checks for free, and that’s a free offer without a hoop of balloons outside either.  Don’t despair, Larry.  Just be nice to everyone you meet.  Very soon someone will snap you up for who you are, and not just to get their hands on your pension.
