LET’S BIVOUAC (AND FIGHT) through the Trump years together. I am: sexy, Ivy-educated 40-something of independent means and a putatively glamorous career, most often praised by others for her wit, dresses, liquor tolerance, rapier perception, courage, and parallel parking skills. I do not want a baby, wedding ring, or your pension – but companionship, passion are nice. You are: under 60 (seriously), unattached (seriously), of sound body (mind optional), sidesplittingly funny, brilliant at one or two things, and willing to die on the hill for a few more. Got kids, pets? No problem.
