I'm expanding a bit on the post below (lo kaya bisa baca pikiran gw, Ping!)
Toys and games. What is it about dudes and their MANIC obsession with these two?
Unlike the bad habit of ngompol that naturally stops at a certain age, toying and gaming seems to be a life long disease. Malahan penyakit yang satu ini makin lama malah makin kronis. Yang tadinya cuma addict main gameboy, lama2 mulai merambah ke playstation, ke online game, ke electronic gadgets, ke gitar, ke mobil, ke saham and even, you know it, chicks.
Kalau udah bosen sama Jessica the guitar and Bianca the car, dudes start playing games with the real Jessicas and Biancas. Mulai dari game terkenal titled "how long should I wait to call after the first date" sampai game aneh2 including "I really really like you today, but I'm not so sure about tomorrow" and "how long can I disappear until I drive her crazy". And when boredom hits one more time, dudes start picking up a new game: juggling. Juggling more than 1 girl, that is.
Just like dudes get obsessed with going up the level of difficulty in a playstation game, they also want to get up the level of difficulty in playing the juggling chicks game. From 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to... the day they get caught.
Caci maki. Gampar. Putus. Minta maaf. Ngaku kapok. Minta maaf lagi. Kasih kado. Minta balik. Diterima.
But dudes will gun for the OK button when asked "do you want to start a new game?" at the end of a game they lost. With no second thought, without further ado. And it starts all over again.
Dasar penyakit kronis. Susah deh sembuhnya.
