It was a dreary and stormy Friday night at the billiards hall. Doctor Illusion, Mistress, and myself were shooting a few games of pool while enjoying some drinks. Two girls walked in and started playing at the table adjacent to ours. One of the girls had a tiny man clasped to her at all times, like a mosquito in fear of losing it’s fresh blood supply. The other girl looked as if she was very desperate to find a blood sucking parasite of her own, dressed up in what I can only imagine she thought was what women were supposed to wear to attract a mate. High heels she could barely walk in, a shirt with some shiny shit on it, and jeans. Her make up was caked on like a french prostitute, or maybe she was going to be hunting raccoons later that evening and was making sure her eyes were properly camouflaged for the event. Doc Illusion and I had quite a laugh at this spectacle.
The night continued and much to our surprise there were what appeared to be members of the male species approaching this girl and chatting her up. Sure, they looked like they were fresh out of a Dungeons and Dragons convention, but still surprising nonetheless. What followed was strange. Like men bringing sacrifices of wine and blood to the alter of a goddess…these men continually were whipping out their wallets to pay for drinks for this girl. Not one at a time, no this was a crowd of at least three very desperate men of unquestionable thirst. For they must have walked through a desert after being brought prophetic visions of an entity that could cure the thirst they had in their throats.
After watching this display of madness for nearly three hours, none of them actually made a move. Never actually attempted to dip their toes into the waters. They just continued to burn a hole into their wallets and seeing absolutely no return on their
investment gamble. We watched this girl just leave the bar without even so much as giving a hug to these pitiful men. They instead opted to give Doc Illusion a hug because he had played some 90s boy band music (for himself) that they enjoyed.
Don’t lay down a sacrifice to a non existent goddess. Invest in yourself and let others reap the benefits of it.
