Watching a Chinese movie on Netflix, I realized that it had no subtitles and was not dubbed in English, that it was entirely in Chinese.
I watched it anyway, 2 hours, it was beautiful, the scenery, the fighting, the women. Then I realized why I hadn’t just turn it off when I realized it was all in Chinese. Women.
Like all of my relationships with beautiful crazy sexy women, I often didn’t understand a thing they say. in fact listening to them is just a waste of good effort.
Instead I just watch their pretty faces, or mouths or arms, their posture and expression The body language. Then I just guess at their meaning.
It’s much more important to understand their meaning, rather than their words. The meaning is what gets you in trouble, in my experience. Even then you are probably still in trouble just on principle.
I don’t claim to understand women, but that doesn’t keep me from watching them as intently as that foreign language movie. They are fascinating.
