A few days ago while skimming through sha’s post, I noticed that, in her own inimitable way, she was on a warpath against those women who plaster pictures of themselves with some new bloke they just met, all over Face Book. The post struck a resonance with some thoughts which had been embroiled in my mind since I had a conversation a few weeks ago with someone quite close to me.
The gist of his idea is that nowadays, as soon as they meet a man, some women go quite primeval by cocking up a leg and ‘pissing’ all over him in order to scent-mark him. I mulled over the concept and on reading sha’s post, wondered if pasting a new flame’s pictures on face book, especially when not reciprocated, can be regarded as scent-marking. I also don’t believe I would like to be scent-marked, under any circumstances.
Do women really scent-mark men? In romantic life, I can imagine that they could, same as men may scent-mark women, but at play? And at work?
What purpose would scent-marking serve when the next woman can just walk over, cock up her legs too (I really like that picture) and pass urine over the active mark, thereby masking the existing odour with her much stronger and more recent one?
On a parallel vein, I would like to share some marriage anecdotes that were sent to me a while ago…
* So many options: Poison, sleeping pills, hanging, jumping from a building, lying on train tracks, but we chose Marriage, slow and sure!
* A man who surrenders when he's wrong, is Honest. A man who surrenders when not Sure, is Wise. A man who surrenders even if he's Right, is a Husband.
* Men want 3 qualities in wives: Economist in kitchen, artist in home & devil in bed. But they get artist in kitchen, devil in home & economist in Bed.
