So, I’m moving to Seattle in less than two weeks. I’ve been faced with the following dilema: what and how much does one tell one’s potential roommate regarding what they do for a living?
After not much luck with the apartment/roommate search, I went on craig’s list a couple of weeks ago and posted the following, mostly as a joke:
Okay, I tried the normal ad. Now’s the honest one.I’m moving to Seattle. I need a place to stay April 2nd til the 1st of May. Why pick me?
Because you will never, ever have the chance to live with a professional nude/fetish model ever again. I have lots of great stories about the people who photograph me when I’m naked and/or tied up. You can tell all your friends that a nude model is renting out one of your rooms.
I don’t walk around naked. I’m not going to sleep with you. I’m easy-going, a night owl, and a bit of a homebody. Basically, a normal, average person who happens to be a nude model.
And that’s why, out of all the other normal, average people who are looking for a place to stay for a month, you should rent a room out to me.
The resulting emails: priceless.
I didn’t find a place to live, though.
