Alphabet Soup, Volume 1
Years ago I had a satirical website, Upchuck.com, about the city of Charleston, SC. I lived there on two separate occasions back in the ’90s and the second time around my ex-wife and I actually owned a home in the downtown area. The website was vaguely similar to The Onion in that I wrote amusing “news” stories about the stereotypical goings on in that wee historical city.
The website was quite popular and when the news media tracked me down I was interviewed and put on the front page (below the fold) of the Sunday Post and Courier, the local daily newspaper. The satire I wrote was also republished in the local free weekly, The City Paper. Three or four times, I used the “alphabet soup” format which I’m using for this blog post.
The format here you’ll see immediately. I don’t remember where I got the idea although I’m positive I copied it from another source. As I’ve been blogging quite a bit recently, I think it’s time I lightened up just a bit to get a break from all the serious stuff I’ve been scribbling this past week or so. You’ll recognize some words and concepts in this Alphabet Soup format, the Red Pill attraction and dating version.
Adrift – Where too many post-divorce men find themselves when they re-enter the dating world.
Bad Boy – Women still love this type of man regardless of age. See “Edge”.
Consistent – Too much of this is actually makes a man look dull and boring. Mix it up, guys.
Dating – It can actually be fun if you don’t take it too seriously.
Edge – This is a type of independent confidence that women find very attractive in a man.
Far – Even with Skype and other technologies, the long distance relationship is not realistic.
Gorecki – Take a date to a classical music concert. You’ll impress her and she has to dress up.
Handy – Not that kind of handy. A man should be good with tools and fixing stuff.
I – A pronoun to avoid during a conversation on a date. This goes especially for women.
Jump – Guys, if she asks, don’t. That’s for weak, obsequious doormats
Knowledge – There’s so much truthful dating advice in the Manosphere there’s no reason to be willfully ignorant.
Love – It gets qualitatively different as we get older and wiser.
Manipulative – We all have it in us. Keep it to a dull roar because men should be direct.
Organize – What to do if you’re doing a lot of dating with different women.
Politics – I don’t talk about such things nor should you on a date.
Qualify – Just because she’s got ladyparts doesn’t automatically make her a potential date.
Respect – Only give it to her if she’s earned it.
Sex – Why yes, adults do this. Giggity.
Tomassi – Are you reading Rollo? You should.
Uxorious – Guys, know this word. Don’t be like this.
Vivaldi – He didn’t compose 1500 concerti. He composed the same concerto 1500 times.
Wall – With age comes this phenomenon, for men and women alike. It’s easier for men to deal with it.
Xylophone – A man knowing how to play a musical instrument is a good thing.
Youtube – Yeah, I’m doing that. Check out this one. More to come.
Zundapp – German motorcycles are cool. Every man should learn to ride a motorcycle.
I’ll be using this format frofm time to time just to keep things interesting. If my commenters want to chime in with their own lists, I look forward to it.
