This is How it Is


									                                     This is How it Is
                                  by Bryan Patrick Moses

David is very cocky and he thinks he knows everything about women. He is talking to his
friend Sam, his best friend, about a beautiful woman who walked into the bar that they
are in. David follows these “codes” of socializing that is not actually true.

          You want to make an ass out of yourself? You don’t know if she is even
interested in you. What are you going to do? Nothing. She’s not your type. Man, trust
me on this. All right. She’s not your type. Look at how she’s dressed. You see that?
She’s not your type. A girl like that? Come on. How long have you known me? (pause)
 Right. About four years, right? Now, in these past four years, how many girls have you
dated that’ve dressed like that? Huh? (pause) That’s right. None. Now, the girls I’ve
dated, right? How many have dressed like her? There you go. (pause) Do? Do? What
am I going to do? You really don’t get this, do you? Look at her. She wants me.
Okay? Get that? She wants me. You see, she thought that she was being subtle. The
looking over here, the drinks, the smiling, the cigarette, all that so-called subtle shit says
loudly that she wants me. But she’s an amateur. Granted, I want her too, but the beauty
of it is that she isn’t sure that I want her. You see, I have the power. The ball is totally in
my court. Right now, she is sitting there wondering, “Why the hell doesn’t he come over
here?” And what’s great is, that this makes her want me more. You see, Sam, I know
women. Plain and simple. I’m not one of those poor slobs who sits around and says, “I
don’t understand women.” Those are also the same guys who wonder where all the
Vaseline has gone. There have been medical studies that say this and that about how
women and men think differently. I might buy that, because they’re talking about
mathematical skills, shit like that. But when it comes to sex, women and men think
exactly the same. The only difference is men will tell you what they think, while women
will hide it. But since I’m so trained in these things, I’ve been able to get women to
reveal everything, while I reveal nothing. You see, women hide their sexual desires, or at
least try to, but men don’t. That’s why women have the power in this world. I’m talking
the real power, now, not that running the country shit. But, you see, I have broken their
code. They’re defenseless. I have the power!
