Tulsa told me the other day that she thought perhaps she had met The Plan.
Silly Tulsa! How can you 'meet' The Plan?? The Plan is abstract, not concrete; an idea, not a person. Heck, it is so wilfully imprecise, so infinitely flexible that it does not even amount to a definite series of projected actions - it is more an attitude of mind. Or perhaps a 'mission statement'.... and we all know how nebulous and worthless those are!
It is a general strategy for attempting to revive my long dormant, long thwarted love life. Now, yes, it does centre around certain people, the likeliest (I wish!) candidates for possible romance, my current loci of lust. And there is one in particular, who I suppose we might designate as 'Target A'. I am pretty heavily smitten with 'Target A' - but, habitually pessimistic of my chances, I am allowing myself to contemplate possible contingency options: Targets 'B' and 'C'.
There is no way Tulsa could possibly know - or even guess - who any of these ladies is. Darn it, I scarcely know them myself. In fact, in the case of one of them, I do not know her at all, have never yet spoken to her, do not even know her name (although I think I do know one of her friends, and am wondering how to get an introduction via her). In the second case, I have known her by sight for at least a couple of years, but have never got up the courage to say more than an occasional bashful 'hi' to her. And in the third case - well, damn, superficially the most promising prospect, I suppose: I've met her 3 times, have acquired her name, and have even given her my phone number (uncommonly pushy of me); I did not, alas, get her phone number (I'm not that pushy), and she has not yet used my contact details to pass on hers, as she promised she would; so, probably not really very promising, after all.
Perhaps I need further backups, Targets 'D', 'E', and 'F'.
I am hoping Tulsa has secured contact details for this lady she met who she thought had Froog appeal. I think I need as many people pimping for me as possible. Anyone else care to assist???
