  • On monday evening a dark-eyed woman read into my coffee, wondering if i was a dancer. She could see right through me, causing a suppression of my urge to light a cigarette. Dancers better not smoke. As I was stepping out, she offered me a job. 20% travel required.

 Since I see through you anyway, I accepted her offer and started this morning. Benefits include an auto reply informing others I’ll be out of town on business reading thoughts from nine to five.

    The first man to see me was eager to know how much longer.
