Our Favorite Personal Ad / Memorable Fancies #1506

“Just die, you deranged asshole.” – from the Personals section of City Paper (Washington, D.C.) some years ago.

There are so many ways this ad says “I love you”: I’m not ignoring you, crushing your existence as if it never happened; but I’m excited enough to imagine you, not only disappearing from my life, but dying just because I tell you to: a loving sacrifice, for sure.

And I’m fondly remembering your remarkable mental states, your oblivious behavior, your psychotic anatomy, the depth of my feeling for you that excites me to write turbulent, vivid, yet succinct, prose – and publish it!
