Sorry about the cheesy metaphor but I rarely post and thought this may be my only chance to use it. I know...I’m a dork...just like the rest of you ;o) I did a search of the hot deals forum and didn’t see this, so here it is. If it is a repost, lock it or let it die with my blessing.

I have to share yet another message I received from a random guy that has baffled me for weeks: “You are hotter than donut grease.” Yes, ladies and gents, there are guys out there who actually use such lines. Honestly, a pick-up line should never include the word “grease.” It is not sexy, and it is not complimentary, although I hear donut grease is pretty hot.
