Sigh . . . .

Wherein you learn that you are one profoundly ugly sumbitch.

David Zweig observes: "Watching the ad, I kept picturing all of the women I see on the subway, at highway rest stops, in suburban malls. Yes, some of them look like the women in the ad, but most of them don’t."

Before it's pointed out by Amanda Marcotte, we observe that this is just one more ploy of the patriarchy so that when we tell a woman she's beautiful, she'll more promptly bring us a sandwich.

Your homework assignment is to write a short story explaining the circumstances in which David Zweig spends his time watching women at highway rest stops.
