Obviously, whoever placed the ad is some kind of delusional psychopath who still believes in fairyland, but as long as it’s a delusional psychopath who is willing to pay me, I can handle that. At this point, I’d work for Jack the Ripper.


I called the number in the ad, and the woman who picked up said, “Disneyland, this is Edna.” I explained I had the wrong number, hung up, and dialed again.
