Note: Legalese Love

Last week, as I exited the inter-city bus I take between Shanghai and Ningbo, an old woman got my attention by grabbing onto my shoulder bag. She had picked up a folded piece of paper from the ground (which eventually revealed itself to be two pieces of paper), and was gesturing wildly. It being written in English, and I being the only laowai on board, she assumed the papers belonged to me and was kindly ensuring that I didn’t depart the bus without them. They weren’t mine, but I allowed her to press them into my hand nonetheless, as I could tell that it meant a great deal to her to be doing me this kindness. The pages, which contain some kind of a love contract written in dense, legalistic prose, have greatly interested me Aufblasbare Zelte. Using the internets, I have tried to locate the individuals this concerns; thus far my efforts have been in vain. If you know either of the parties, kindly have them contact me at rogerpresents AT gmail DOT com. I would gladly return their document.

    i want to give this to my lady, but she’d probably toss it after the first paragraph and just jump my bones. That’s my hope anyway …

      That’s what the “baby you turn me on” clause is about, apparently.

    The best part has to be the burn marks

      It sure seems like A has rebuffed B, don’t you think? Didn’t do a very good job “looking over” the contract. It kind of looked like there were nachos on the back of the second page, and what with the cigarette burns, coffee stain and the footprint, I think it’s clear that B will be dining alone, at least for now.
