A reader commented that since the Ginger Ninja and I started dating, I haven’t been posting too many blog entries under a category where I used to post a lot of stories: “Yeah…Girls…Geez”. He’s right, and I’ll see what I can do about it.
Here’s a comic that fits under the “Yeah…Girls…Geez”. We’ve all been here before, haven’t we?
I used to get burned by my own “Nice Guy Syndrome” in situations like this until my mid/late twenties. That’s when I adopted the new doctrine I like to call “Just Evil Enough”, which I paired with the doctrine that my old roommate Paul and I developed, “Just Gay Enough (the motto: “We dress nicely, we cook, we don’t take it up the pipe”).
Learn the lesson from that old Star Trek episode where a transporter accident splits Captain Kirk into his “light” and “dark” side — his command and mackin’ skills came from his dark side. Embrace your dark side and own it, but don’t let it own you.
(An aside: a number of people who’ve seen this comic commented on the “boob grab” in the third panel. I said “The double boob grab followed by moving them as if they were an accordion doesn’t win you any points. But I gotta be me!” See? That’s just evil enough.)
