Well...I MIGHT be interested in that widower with young children...and I could prolly handle some light housekeeping but being well past the age of menopause now, it might take something of a miracle to contribute to the growth of his family...

Lol, Rooster, I couldn't help chuckling and remembering a certain difference between British and American English regarding the definition and the etymology of "ass" (British citizens refers mostly to "asinus", resp. "Equus africanus asinus" and American citizens rather to Old English "aers" or "ears" (Scottish "ers"):
