Takin A Chance

Image hosted by Photobucket.com Have you ever been in a position where someone attractive caught ya eye...and he/she found you equally pleasin to the eye too...and since the both of you are in some form of public transport...you're stuck with each other's company...but none of you are forthright enough to walk up to the other half and say somethin cheesy like "Hey i i know this is gona sound really out of line but i find you really attractive and here's my number if you're interested oh by the way im *insert name here*..."

So a game of cat-and-mouse ensue...none of you willing to stare blatantly at The Attractive One...and whenever he/she looks back at you...your eyes divert to somethin less pleasant...like the fat bloke who just came in munchin on 2 cream donuts...

The worst part of this? It goes on for the entire duration of the journey...say...you board the train at Lilydale to Melbourne Central...the 2 of you play 'Eye Tag' for a good 45 minutes...

How tortuous is that? How bloody difficult is it to walk up to The Attractive One and convey ya heart's desire?

For most parts of the semester ive had to endure mind-numblin conversations with my girlfriends Sophie and Samantha...how they'll spot The Attractive One in the train/tram and not have the bloody guts to do somethin bout it...Ahhhhhhhhh....*tears hair out*

Just several days ago...Monica told me how hopelessly in lust she had fallen for a random stranger in the train...the trap was already laid and the bait taken...The Attractive One was commentin how good Monica looked...they exchanged 2 silly sentences on what musical devices they had...and then...silence...Ahhhhhhhh...*starts guzzlin petroleum*

Ok...excuse me ladies...but allow me...

Here we have...3 beautiful ladies...each with their own brand of attractiveness and sexiness...well brought up and articulated...they're white...confident and could hold a decent conversation with just about anyone...

But watch them turn into putty when The Attractive One starts playin mind games with them...

I suppose...at the back of their minds...they're afraid of the repurcussions once contact was made...what could The Attractive One possibly do once you've established the fact that you're *insert current marital status here*? At worst...The Attractive One wont be your lover or Fuck Buddy...but hey you have yourself a very attractive friend! Go nuts partyin in clubs and watch as scores of admirers walk up to The Attractive One proclaimin their undyin love...only to swell with pride as The Attractive One only wants to party with you tonight...coz you're a friend...

Unless of coz The Attractive One wants only one thing tonight...well...that's another story...

Maybe it's just me...but im gregarious by nature...that bloke in the Student Union co-op services?...i know him...owner and his lovely Thai waitresses in the uni cafe? I know them too...the candy man in Victoria Market? Been there done that...

Some people spend their whole lives lookin for their special someone...even more live in fear and self-pity as their marriage has degenerated into a divorce...and even more walk around thinkin they've got everythin as they've a different sex partner in bed every weekend...

Our lives dont last forever...on average...a healthy male in a First World country lives to ripe old age of 74...while a female outlives her male counterpart by 5 years...

80 years! Count that! 80 x 365 days = 29200 days! We spend a third of our lives sleepin...sixth of that in the bathroom...how many days do we have left for other goals in life? It's really not a lot...

Consider myself here...im already 26...i smoked for 9 years...gave it up for 7 months and kinda picked it up again these days...i try not to sleep too much as 24 hours simply isnt enough to even blink these days...apart from a dodgy back, knee and ankles as a result of my soccer and mountain-bikin activities...im a very healthy man...yet...i cant help but think if i could extend my life by another 10 years...

That man in the coffeeshop...he nodded at me as i walked past him...maybe he has somethin interestin to tell me? The old couple who thanked me last week for returnin their wallet...perhaps they've a good story to share with me...The pretty waitress who served me Fish-n-Chips in Lygon...im sure she has a story to tell too...

Everyone of us go about our daily lives without stoppin to think how amazin the world works...each and everyone of us go about our little own activities...if we only stopped and perhaps engaged ourselves in a conversation with the person next to us or the likes...our lives could be so much richer...

So i say...you 3 lovely young women...the next time someone attractive starts playin 'Eye Tag' with ya...think about the myriad of possibilities you could have with a new friendship...

Perhaps he's the owner of STA Travel...and has 2 free tickets to Malibu to get rid of...

You'd never know :)
