The art of scoring


You know one of the things one just adores about Fet is the ability to stalk around reading things and indulging in the favourite past time of people watching. See people are way more interesting to watch when they don't know they are being observed. They have no idea how bloody entertaining they are either... well to one who is cynically inclined. Take this week's little drama... one that is played out on a myriad of boards on any given week.

A sweet young thing, a regular damsel in distress, comes to a wise bunch of strangers with a little tale of woe. It seems her one twoo master hasn't spoken to her for some time... the vile beast. What should she do... she loves him so. Now people get on and giver her sage advice, point out in the nicest possible way that she has been abandoned and that no twoo master would treat her so. Of course some get on and tell her she is being a complete twit, but they are usually shushed by the kinder ones... she is obviously in pain, why make it worse.

Then along comes a special breed of master, one who is brave and strong. He proclaims loudly, with much chest thumping, that the other master is a cad... obviously... and that she deserves so much better. Peeping out at him through tear soaked lashes she murmurs really kind sir? Oh thank you for saying so. The fact that several women have just said the same thing repeatedly doesn't count... obviously.

The next thing you know the shy young maiden and the good master have become friends and so off the story goes... It is a tale as old as mankind and before. It is a tale of predator and prey. The only thing one isn't sure about exactly, is who is about to become lunch... 'cos the money isn't on the master J

and the same scenario is played out time and time again. It's why I avoid the slave boards like they've got cooties...

Oh how can you resist the lure of will they, won't they? And picking which one will put his foot in the trap? It's better than chocolate :D

I find a striking resemblance between the slave boards and daytime TV (soap opera's and talk shows).

Indeed and just like them you can tune in six month later and still be following the same story :D

We used to have a dog like that...She would bat her eyelashes, smile pretty, and wait for the petting hand to extend...Than she would chomp down and try to drag her rescuer into the pit where she hid the bones of her previous conquests lol.
