I don't WANNA know what they do in secret! Neither am I interested in whether it’s real or fake, pinned or tucked, banded, coloured, implanted or hitched. I’m just not that kind of person. No, I can hide my sweet stash.
But today the game’s up. I’m confessing:
I. Just. Want. To be on Top.
It’s tricky. I must make sure you never guess what I’m up to. So when I mention in passing the faults of another and then generously praise them, you’ll pass it off as a compliment to that person. It goes down so smoothly – A shot-glass of melted chocolate with just a little nip of…..poison.
But aaaaaaaahhhhhh, the view from the top…The intoxication of admiration….The satisfaction of respect….The warm pleasure of praise….
They’ll almost suffice for love.
I’m sorry that this means I have to step on people. It’s quick though, just a short, sharp pain – a little stab.
The rest is up to the others. I can rely on them for the everyday work – a word, a picture, a hint, an assumption – A few Delicious Morsels …
