Wow, I'm at 6,976 JournalSpace readers.
So I'll probably hit 7,000 sometime today.
For some reason, I want it to be for a real entry. Not a stupid list. Not a comic. I want it to be something a little bit deeper.
I don't really have anything deep, so this will have to do.
A friend and I have been discussing the ignore game lately. The ignore game is quite simple: Whoever initiates contact - an email, a phone call, a text message, whatever - gets one point. The goal of the ignore game is to have the lowest score.
I am a champion at this game.
I almost never contact anyone first. I always respond when contacted, but that's it. For me to actually initiate contact is pretty rare.
I guess I should point out that this game is played mainly against people with whom you have a crush or other romantic interest, or at least against someone who you suspect has such an interest in you. You play the game to find out if your opponent is interested in you or not. It's not as quick as simply asking, but it's a lot safer to the ego.
It is very important, and I cannot stress this enough - the other person must not know that you're playing.
Because then it's just a stubborn contest, and it can last for years.
