I get creepy predator emails from (presumably) men every few weeks. I know we all do. At first they creeped me out entirely, then they became amusingly distasteful. So it goes. But today I received this email that was simply poetic in its own broken way, and I loved it. Here it is:
From one Edward J. B.:
Good gracious God, What a beautiful daughter of nature. Ann do you know that your eyes speak to me of fate, and in them is more beauty than I could ever find. My queen, may your smile attracts more of God blessings and your heart desires to you before the year ends. whats the secret behind your beauty my queen?
I normally wouldn’t say this, but I kind of hope that you’re on this guy’s email hit list too, so you can enjoy the lovely missive. Or, I hope your next creepy emailer is as facile with words as this one.
I say enjoy all the little gifts that life brings your way, no matter how perverse.
