Have you ever turned the flirting factor up to get a sale? I'm not talking about asking someone out or anything (although, kudos to you!) but a little flirting usually doesn't hurt your sale.

So the difference between a cougar and a cougar queen is marital status? *grins* What's the age limit on cougarness anyway? (cougarosity? cougaritude?)
