Do I Seem Desperate?

I honestly don't give dating much thought except when I meet someone interesting. Which normally means someone who only seems interesting at first or else isn't much interested in me.

I'd only be available three nights a week, tops, anyway.

So anyway, I've heard ads for Rosetta Stone language software for about ever now, and I've always wanted to branch out into foreign languages but I've never gotten around to doing it. Spanish, probably, as that's the one that's most likely to be useful to me living in America.

Their ads keep plugging a free demo disc. So I went to their web site, and failed to get the disc sent to me but ended up doing an online demo, where they show you a snippet of how they present Turkish.

And Em comes down to my den and catches me trying to learn a bit of Turkish (Adam=Man; Kiz=Girl, etc.), and she says, 'This has to be because of a girl.'


'If you're learning Turkish, you must have met a Turkish woman!'

Nope, no Turkish women. Maybe I should get their Russian CDs so I can go get that mail-order bride I'm obviously desperate enough for...
