Why wouldn't he want to make love to her, for God's sake? She could yodel, perform bird calls on cue, the way real birds understood them. Could fold a stained dishtowel into a hat, was gypsy-pretty, had a dog-friendly hatchback car that didn't smell. Was great at making people laugh about her ex-husband's phobias. Would say, "I loved him so much that I had to divorce him." So many gifts.
