Why I don't need* a man, by nanila

Exhibit AExhibit B**

* NB: "Need" != "Want". Why is it still necessary to explain this to people?!
** This is a jar opener. I sure hope y'all can figure out what the other picture is without my help.

You don't need a man because you've got a periscope?

Oh yes. It means I can see what's on the top shelf, even if I can't reach it.

I find relationships based on need are generally poisoned from inception anyway. What is needed isn't really the relationship - it's learning to be mentally self sufficient.

I'd better stop here, or I'll rant all night.

Christ, I'm actually embarressed how long I spent trying to figure out what stimulating physical acts could be performed by a jar opener*, before it suddenly clicked: "Oh, for opening jars."

Either I'm that stupid, or my mind has long since sunk to the deepest recesses of the gutter.

(* I came up with a few ideas as well...)

I'm rather depressed that was the first thing that I did think of.

Time to get my mind back in the gutter.

Why do you need a bottle opener to operate your pleasure pole? Are changing batteries that difficult?

I should probably be punished for this.

Sometimes it's just so difficult to get off. HAR!

I may just need more sleep, but I swear exhibit A has a face.

Excellent argument. Toss in a great friend for emotional support and I'm all set.
