Today’s Market Promo

“Everything’s 1 euro,” the guy at the market said today. “Including the seller,” referring to himself. “Mademoiselle,” he bats his eyelashes at me.

I wonder if this line ever works?

Wouldn’t I want a man worth a little more? Or maybe I just passed up the best deal ever!

As a friend noted, he was pricing himself at a “symbolic euro” for me. Also, if he does dishes, Alison said she’d take him. πŸ™‚

    You should have asked about his after-sales service and return policy.

    Maybe you should sample the goods and see if the euro is a good price??

    Oy! Jodie’s suggestion reminds me (& here I’m REALLY betraying my age) of a great bit by the late Buddy Hackett, which he told on, wait for it… Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show! Of course, Buddy drug it out to great comic effect, at which I am no good: Guy at a bar is approached by a hot bar girl, who whispers suggestively in his ear, “For $200, I’ll do ANYTHING you want…” (abt her price, remember how long ago Johnny was still on.) Bar patron drags this out w/ variations of “Really? Anything? What’s the catch? You’re open to anything I want from you?” And she assures him sultrily that she she does mean anything. Finally, the guy slips her the $200 and whispers breathily in her ear: “Paint. My. House.” Ba-dum-bum!

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.
