Esther from Syria: Part I...
I am getting emails from a young lady in Syria who is 'enthusiastic to establish long-time romance'. She is also keen to know whether I am 'enthusiastic to establish similar'.
It is Saturday morning and I am sitting in my office at home when another email arrives.
'Esther's emailed me again!' I yell to the Missus.
'Again? She's keen,' she replies.
'I admire her work ethic. She also seems to really like me...'
'Yes. But she hasn't seen a photo of you yet, has she?'
I think that was an insult. I consider sending Esther a photo...
