Personal Ad

The assignment: Write a personal ad for your character, like one you would find on a dating site… We’re not looking for the ad to be part of a piece – we want it to be THE piece.  And we’d like you to do it in 300 words or less.

I am not just any other girl, and I deserve not just any other guy.

I am attractive: my last boyfriend said I had the BEST pheromones.  Come on over and smell me!

I have a great sense of humor.  For example, I own this t-shirt from Starbucks.  Funny, right!?

I am trendy, but I appreciate the classics.  I know all the words to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song.  It’s a rap!

I love to go out, but I am also a great cook.  I throw great dinner parties.  Have you tried Paula Deen’s Krispy Kreme burgers?

Love me, love my ferret.

My number one qualification for a potential mate is sophistication.  Also, you should be tall.

    “Love me, love my ferret.” Brilliant! I loved the distinctiveness of your character’s voice. A unique and compelling individual indeed. I’d be friends with her.
