up any university or college catalog, or visit one of the thousands of campuses
nationwide, and you will see a huge department comprised of many buildings;
this department is known as the College of Arts and Sciences. If you think
about it for a minute, you will probably wonder why on earth they would house
both arts and sciences under one umbrella. I mean, they are polar opposites,
wouldn't you agree? In fact, isn't just about everything in life either an
art or a science? I mean, literature is an art; computer logic is a science.
Painting is an art; chemistry is a science. Why don't they just call it the
Who knows? Some folks say that it is hard to distinguish some subjects between
the two, which I suppose might be the reason for putting the two together;
some of my colleagues insist that writing, for example, is both art and science.
I am not certain there is anything scientific about writing. Using formulas
to write does indeed produce writing - crappy writing, but I guess even crappy
writing is writing.
There is one thing, let me tell you, that is an art. Flirting. Flirting is
an art, no doubt about it. In fact, come to think of it, they ought to teach
Flirting 101 in the Arts and Sciences building. Flirting will get you a lot
more in life than literature ever will. Flirting can get you money, fame,
a good job, a lover, a spouse, a good time out on the town, self-esteem,
popularity. Really, if you think about it, the art of flirting can get you
just about anything.
Perhaps just as important is understanding the flirting, so for all you guys
out there, if you are not really sure when that girl you are with - or wish
you were with - is flirting, here is how to tell:
· She leans in toward you when you talk, and her cleavage is exposed
a little more than it was before.
· She touches your hand when she says something intriguing to you, or
for that matter something totally boring.
· She looks down, then looks up with only her eyes. Princess Diana was
really good at this one.
Ladies, I bet you would like to know when guys are flirting with you, too,
right? Well, here is all you need to know:
· Don't worry about it. Guys have no idea how to flirt. Much too subtle
for the male psyche. They don't bother, but if he grabs you and plants a
wet tongue kiss on you, he THINKS he is flirting, so if you like him, go
for it. If you don't, you know what to do.
That's it. Flirting. That is all there is to it. Come to think of it, Flirting
101 would be stupid. Even a windbag professor can't turn that into a semester
