This Is My Lucky Day!

Well, well, well! Waddaya know, I’m gonna be rich! At least, according to an email I received last night. Here, check it out.

“My dear”–promising start! She is looking for “a trusted person who can assist me… I am Miss Zenab Warlord Ibrahim Coulibaly 24 years old female…” Hoo-hah. She is the daughter of a warlord in the Ivory Coast. She says I can call her Princess Zenab for short. Her diligent search revealed that I’m the man of her dreams.

See, she’s looking for “a long-term relationship and investment assistance”–from me, of all people–and then “I will relocate to your country and settle down with you.” That could be the tricky part. But to sweeten the deal, Poppa left her $27.5 million in the bank, and once we get that transferred to my local S&L in Metuchen, it’s smooth sailin’. I wonder what it’ll be like, settling down with a warlord’s daughter. I hope she and my wife will get along. And Poppa is dead, so I won’t have to worry about having to work for a father-in-law who’s an African warlord.

Blamed if I can see any downside to this deal!
