Somehow, that would sound a lot more disturbing if the genders were reversed.

Well maybe not if I told you the full story, hehe.

I was in Marks & Spencer, buying some food, when this lady came over to me and said "excuse me, can I interest you in a free bottle of wine?" to which I responded "certainly!" Clearly she recognised what a distinguished well dressed gentleman I am, and was naturally drawn to me, and now they must be rewarding customers for this. I felt a little bit like Peter Griffin in the episode of Family Guy where he gets plastic surgery, and realises that beautiful get free things and don't have to stand in queues, hehe. Anyway, that was the point where she told me that she'd give me the wine if I filled in an application for an M&S credit card. Well she'd already seduced me with her offer, so I had no choice but to go with her and comply. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with this card when it arrives, as I've never needed to buy anything on credit, but I suppose I could use it to jimmy open some locks. As for the wine, I know exactly what to do with that, hehe.

I liked the first story better.

I think I recall an update announcement of that one not so long ago. I wonder if I can find it…

(Some creative Googling later…)

Could it be MOTAS you're thinking of? (If that was what I was thinking of, the announcement wasn't as recent as I though. It seems to be last updated a year ago.)

Once again, you gave me a laugh. (Not immediately, this time. It took a while to get, but was all the better for it.)

(After some more Googling, to enlighten me on the meaning of that word…)

It was the humour in it that I didn't see until after a while, when I imagined what the scene would look like. I can't say why, but I suddenly found your words very funny.

Yes! That's the one. Thank you! *hugs* ^_^

Is "appreciated" the name of some young hunk?
