Is it hot in here? Or is it just me?

A letter I received in the mail the other day:

Dear Bubba's Sis,

We are a company that matches interested people with clinical trials (also known as research studies). We are currently working with a pharmaceutical company to find women who are interested in participating in a clinical trial for the treatment of hot flushes.

As a doctor, I know that women with hot flushes can feel sudden sensations of heat accompanied by sweating. Hot flushes can even disrupt sleep and leave you tired and irritable the next day.....

You may be eligible to participate.....blah blah blah.....

Sincerely,

We Think You Are Old

WTF? I'm still in my 30's (barely, but I am!). I know I am hawt, but it doesn't come in flashes yet! And there is no cure for Hawtness. I'm just sayin'.

Sounds kind of like what happened to me a couple years ago. i started getting stuff from a company saying they were sorry to hear that I had cancer but now that I was on my way to recovery and on a certain medication, they wanted to stay with me through the process. HUH? I didn't even have cancer!

TOO FUNNY! And you are correct, there is no cure for Hawtness!

A few years ago I got ones for women who weren't trying to have children for something like 3-5 years. Then got ones for women having trouble conceiving. Neither on made po' single cjh feel better about the situation. :o)

Katie Lady - Dude, that's totally what the letter said! FlUshes! Maybe they didn't mean hot flashes at all - maybe they meant some dynomite poo! Yikes!

Is that what makes me wake up irritable??? I thought it was that old guy lying next to me snoring!
