There's No Good Way To Say This...

... so I didn't ... because men are cowards :
Dancer : whats going on with stephan? Dancer : hes not answering any messages Dancer : we were suppose to see each other on sat and he never called or answered and he still isnt Mathieu : well, he's been pretty depressed lately Mathieu : couldn't get him out of his flat on sunday Mathieu : which medium you using? Mathieu : IM, phone, SMS, email? Dancer : all, everything! Dancer : i tries msn, sms, phone, internet... Mathieu : hummm Mathieu : give him a few days, then Mathieu : he must know you're trying to reach him, but he's really down Dancer : i guess Mathieu : have you heard of the Cave Theory of male mgt? Dancer : no Mathieu : it states that men need to retreat to a little cave and be left alone with no talking or verbalizing for a while, every so often Dancer : oh yeah, hearde of that Mathieu : this is linked to actual scientific evidence of a difference in the way our brains function Dancer : i read that Mathieu : female brains activate both the emotional centers of the reptilian brain AND the higher, linguistic functions of the cortex when they deal with emotions Mathieu : male brains only the reptilian part Mathieu : hence they are less inclined to analyze or talk about their emotions than women Mathieu : he's been hurt badly, he needs to live with his reptilian brain for a while Mathieu : do male bonding stuff like sports, drinking... Dancer : its def not still about C, but he needs to get out, its not gonna do any good. but ill leave him alone, ill stop trying to reach him Mathieu : at least a couple days, yes Mathieu : he knows you were trying to reach him Mathieu : I'm sure he'll call you when he comes out of the cave
The deception works only because Dancer, altho she expresses an interest in Stephan and his well-being, has still not bookmarked his blog, and thus has no way to know what he did this weekend. I'd be even more surprised if she read this. Should I turn out to be wrong, Dancer, know that he should be calling you soon. UPDATE : Dancer has read his blog, and this post. I understand they've talked, but Stephan isn't out of the cave yet... and the only heart-to-heart he's going to have is with his blog. Not fair, certainly, but those are the breaks.

Hmmmm ... the Boyfriend seems to think he needs a cave for a week this summer, in the mountains somewhere. I wonder if they have whores in the mountains ...

I see you over at Fish
talking up rain gear.

It's simply 1 or 2 degrees of separation, really, not the 6 degrees that they talk about. At least in blog land anyway.

Ria, what's not to like about the Cave Theory?

It explains those moments when the male is upset and restless, but can't explain why and just gets angry when you pry.

It validates the clear superiority of the human female in the civilizing arts of finer emotion, speech, and negociation.

Its application can be circumscribed by common-sense rules to prevent abuse by the male, but should allow you to get years of enjoyment out of him, by its salubrious effects on his self-esteem and emotional balance.

In particular, Bitch, whores should not be required in a cave moment, and they should not last more than an hour or two, never mind a week!

;)
