A tale of two prostitutes

“The Daily Dish” is doing some “About My Job” posts. This post prints emails from two prostitutes.

The first offers contrast: “Most people would be surprised to find out the 49 year old former housewife who raised 2 great kids to adulthood and has several college degrees, weighing in at 300 lbs, and living in the nice suburban home with the dog and the pool etc. is a prostitute.” The second concludes with a mystery: “Whether this job is good for me is another question. I used to think it wouldn’t have any effect. But I think I was naive about that…”

I wanted to hear more of the second story. Obviously the first has a story to tell, but it didn’t hook me. The second, though, with the allusion to optimistic expectations confounded by reality — I was intrigued.
