After yesterday’s “adventure” to the ice skating rink I decided to go practice some more. Skating, that is. So I went there in the morning with my sarging buddy DD (yes, he was with me yesterday too) and it all worked better than we expected.
Besides learning to skate much better, I also approached a few HBs and made some progress with some of them (no close with any though). I mainly used David DeAngelo’s method (Cocky and Funny), even though I’m personally a fan of the Mystery Method. The reason I did that is because it felt more natural, considering that people go ice skating to have fun, after all.
The first HB I opened, let’s just call her Jailbait (I think that’s self-explanatory), was not one I was interested in at all. She was a 7 and although she was better than me at skating, she was far from being an expert. And, as I was having fun watching her fall, I dropped the opener: “Hey, I like your moves. Can you do the falling part again?” (also a neg, eh?). After a few more minutes of falling, joking and laughing, we ended up talking on the side of the rink. All of a sudden I got a big IOI: “By the way, I’m Jailbait. You?”. I was on the right track.
But we were on a skating rink after all and we kinda split up as she went skating faster than I could, when I saw her with DD. He was the one who initially noticed the HB and wanted to approach her, true, but after a few minutes of watching him do nothing about it, I took over. But now, after I opened her, he stole my target. That pissed me off a bit, but there’s no point talking about it. Later on, after both of us ignored her for a while, she came asking for a cigarette. Damn kids! I used this opportunity to drop a variation of a line I saw on the Internet (original line by Dahunter): “Aren’t you a little too young to smoke? Why don’t you go sit on the corner, while I bring you a coloring book?”. Yeah, that was mean. But I didn’t care. Plus, she laughed. You don’t laugh when you feel insulted! But, well, that’s about as far as I went with this one. Nothing else “big” happened after this moment.
The second HB I worked my game on was a chick who was there with some friends, one of which was a great skater who had the bad habit of passing by me in high speed and making me fall. That’s how I approached the group. I talked to the guy, ignoring the chick. Later the two of them held hands and rushed towards me to make me fall. Fortunately, their bond was weak so I didn’t fall. But they did it again after a while and managed to get me down.
Me and the HB started a little snow fight and I then threatened to throw her in a snow pile just outside the ring. I grabbed her arms trying to push her there (no, I wasn’t going to actually push her in the snow), but she was too good of a skater and took control by skating backwards. Damn, how come all the good HBs can skate better than me?! Still, while doing this I isolated her from her group (and they didn’t seem to mind at all, even though I didn’t DHV to them). But, as an idiot that I am, I let her go before actually running some routines on her.
Besides more socializing with the people on the rink at all times (for social proof and to get rid of my AA) and DHV to some beginner HBs (5s at most though), I didn’t do any more sarging. But considering running game on HBs wasn’t even part of my plan for the morning, I’d say it was a good day. I had a lot of fun and that’s all that matters.
