Concerned about her lack of a love life, Lula decided to try one of those dating sites on the web. Her friend Marge said that her niece had met her husband this way. So, Lula wiped the dust off her old keyboard and set her nimble fingers to work creating a profile.
As soon as she finished, she received a warm welcome message from a handsome man in uniform. His name was Max and he was on an important secret mission out of the country. Lula saw an alligator in the background of his photo, which made his story sound credible.
Max said he was having trouble accessing the site from his remote location, so they began corresponding by email. Lula sent him more photos, and he said she looked so delicious that he wanted to meet her very soon.
The problem was, he had dropped his passport one night while using the bathroom and the alligator had eaten it. He’d been working with great tenacity to replace it because he wanted to visit his mom in the States. She’d been sick lately.
And now there was Lula. Max told Lula he felt so close to her from her sweet letters he might be falling in love. She said she felt the same. He said in that case he’d combine a visit to his mom with one to Lula. She was thrilled! It had been so easy to find her true love on the web.
Then Max said he would work extra to earn the three thousand dollars he needed to expedite new documents. But sadly he wouldn’t have time to write to Lula if he took the second job.
Lula sent him the money.
