I am athletic yet like oysters and know how to eat them.I am easy-going yet firm in my beliefs (high fiber, good scotch, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. I like to laugh at myself as often as I can and once cooked blue spaghetti for 12 people.Read along and REJOICE at this desperate weirdo's personal ad: CHANCE FOR A SPINSTER.A young man in Aroostook County, Maine, advertising for a wife, speaks of himself as follows: ‘I am eighteen years old, have a good set of teeth, and believe in Andy Johnson, the star-spangled banner, and the 4th of July.What—drunk, six cigarettes in my mouth, sobbing down the phone at all the relatives I haven't called in years?
