Hrm....ok, I'll delete the account, and you can reuse it.  Two mins after reading this should be good.

Tonight we discuss Ten Things Men Never Want To Hear:

1) "That looks cute."
2) "We need to talk."
3) "It's just a game."
4) "Nothing's wrong."
5) "I sound like my mom."
6) "I just want to be friends."
7) "Size doesn't matter."
8 ) "What are you wearing?"
9) "Do you think she's pretty?"
10) "Which outfit do you like better?"

Just joking.  We actually talk about D&D, beer, women, comics, Gen Con, Coug and anybody who doesn't show at the forums :twisted:

"No."

Always "no." Even a diplomatic "She's okay, I guess" is not good enough in this situation.

Even "No" doesn't work sometimes.  You have to say no like you could care less and then change the subject.  "So, wanna watch a football game with me?"  Of course, she says no and THEN you're safe.

There's an old ploy that sometimes works, but the timing and the inflection of the voice has to be just right: follow that question with a question.

Her: "Do you think she's pretty?"

You: "Should we barbeque on Saturday, do you think?"

If all goes well, and the planets are aligned correctly, an escape might be possible.

Practice this one folks, until it's a Pavlovian response.  It may save your life one day.  The response must be immediate and without a thoughtful pause.  She is not asking "Does she look pretty?"  She is asking you how quickly you can pronounce the word "No."

You probably know this, but what SHE wants to hear is that SHE is pretty.

So, answer the question she is actually asking:

"Honey, you're the woman I want."

That sort of thing.

Anyway....no charge for that.  8)

Tomorrow is July 4th....

Most Americans will, of course, be drunk.  However, most of us also will be at fireworks displays or other patriotic venues.  It looks like I'll be missing my first weekly chat ever as I re-inact something patriotic by eating hotdogs, drinking alcohol, and watching some Chinese fireworks explode.  In deference to that, if anyone wants to start the weekend early, I'll be on the chat tonight (and if I"M not enough of a draw, who is??????) to make up for missing tomorrow night (or perhaps the entire weekend, I may be watching a Team America: World Police 24 hour marathon or something....)

Most Americans....dont lump me in with that crowd.  :wink:   I will be getting drunk tonight....on German beer no less!  And I'll celebrate Independence Day tomorrow by getting up early and having breakfast at a French bistro and drinking coffee from Ethiopia, Columbia, or Guatemala.  And I think Greek food may be on the menu for tomorrow night.

And to think, if Americans colonists had just paid their taxes and acted like good little settlers, I would most likely be drinking tea, eating spotted dick, and biscuits with NO GRAVY!!!  The horror!  8O

:P

I might stop by the chat tonight if I can still feel my fingers.

Hey now! We didn't have a revolution in Canada and we don't eat things like spotted dick.

We do have the abomination in eastern and Atlantic Canada of "Cretons". :P

Not bad, but I would rather have bacon or sausage.
