Melessa has promised us an exposition of several phenomena, including this one:
… why I couldn’t get a date to save my life when I was 23, thin, cute, and single; and hence my confusion at being flirted with by 27-year-old volunteer bartenders at work and some random stranger here at the hotel …
The Honeys pointed this out way back in 1963: “The one you can’t have is the one that you want the most.” (Honey Marilyn Rovell eventually married the record producer, a fellow named Brian Wilson.)
The implication, though, is that she’s no longer cute. I know better.
