Annie and Freya are postgrad classmates in the School of Communication Arts. At the commencement of the new semester, they are surfing the school's web pages for course descriptions.
Annie: Freya, look! Why on earth do they provide this course?
Freya: A flirting course. That looks interesting. Let's see what will be taught in the course?
The intent of this course is to acquaint students with fundamental ideas of holding captivating conversation with members of the opposite gender via text messages, emails and other forms of communication. The course also focuses on features and practices of seducing and flirting with a potential mate at occasions where communication between strangers is expected; at parties for instance. A module on "cool" walking is another focus of helping students cope with rejection....
Freya: I bet heaps of computer nerds will rush for the course.
Annie: Maybe the course can really do them a great help. You know, some people would feel less pressure by sending text messages to make the first move.
Freya: Yeah, it reminds me of a guy whom I met at a party. He told me he had taken the course. After the party, the guy kept sending me SMS texts to ask me out. At the beginning, I was just being polite to reply him with I was too busy. But he just kept asking, so then I simply ignored him with no responses at all. Then after a few days with no more incoming messages, just when I though he gave up, he sent me again saying...
"At night I cannot sleep, and during the day I dream of you..."
Freya: I was really fed up with him. So I replied him with..
"At night you are insomniac, and during the day you are hypersomniac. So, check with a doctor before you go for dating."
Annie: That's pretty a straight way to draw the line. Hope the guy had attended the class on "cool" walking.
Freya: Well, he seemed to have because I've not gotten messages from him anymore.
