Me and J. Flying back to the US from London. Translating some British rag’s personals.
“Curvy.” J. looks at me, rolls her eyes: “Fat.”
“Drinks socially.” I correct: “Alcoholic. Wake up in my own sick at least 3x per week.”
“Seeking long-term relationship.” J. snickers: “Meaningless fling. I don’t want to see you when I wake up in the morning.”
???? What? An acronym we’ve never seen before.
J. furrows her brow, taps her chin with her finger for a minute, stares up. She turns to me with a devious smile.
“One Huge ARRRRSE…and cunt.”
Man, that was the shortest trans-Atlantic flight I’d ever been on.
