So far I've only received one response to my craigslist posting, from Shawn, who says:
ok...you have waaaaaaay too much time on your hands
Not really. I knocked it out in about half an hour, after American Idol and before working on my 25 page research paper, entitled "Objets d'échange: Le rôle de la femme dans les chansons de geste du moyen age." What did you do tonight?
Though I do appreciate you taking time out of your obviously packed schedule to inform me of your disapproval. As a total stranger, that kind of caring and concern mean a lot to me.
It's ok. Someday I'll meet a man who appreciates my bad poetry. Right? Right???
