Christmas Special - Stomped

I'm not talking about the the U.K. percussion sensation. I'm referring to FOOT-STOMPING. Nope, it's not about children throwing tantrums and stomping their feet. I'm talking about guys getting their feet stomped by girls.

On some occasions, I've witnessed such displays of 'playful (may I even add, infantile) violence'. The younger the couple, the more 'violent' it gets. When words cannot express her exasperation, stomping the guy's foot seems the way for the girl to get her message across. Let me illustrate a scenario.

A couple on a bus and they argue about something. The girl cannot out-talk the guy and she goes silent for awhile and also distances herself 1 foot away to 'disassociate herself' from the guy. All of a sudden, she stomps his foot.

The guy ignores her. She becomes annoyed and inches towards him now and glares at him.

Once again, she distances herself from the guy and promptly stomps his foot again. This time, the guy acknowledges that his foot is getting stomped and he's a little annoyed.

Seeing the guy isn't giving her the 'desired reaction', she inches towards him again and glares at him (notice the fiesty look).

Then as though by divine intervention, the bus brakes suddenly at the traffic light and the girl loses her balance. The guy immediately grabs hold of her.

The two look at each other with unnerving silence and tension seems to build up. However, instead of fuelling the tension, the incident defused the tension. The two start laughing sheepishly about the incident and 'patch-up'.

That's when she stomps his foot for a proper closure.

When witnessing such situations, I don't know whether to be envious or not.

p.s. Merry Christmas to all.

Good thing the girl is wearing some soft-heeled shoes. If she had been wearing some hard-heeled shoes, the guy would have yelled in pain the 1st time she stomped her foot on his ;p
