Short Story Title: Karate Compromise

Arjun is a very nice person living in Montreal, Quebec. He has had many jobs but most of what he knew is no longer
needed by industry, society. Hence he spends his time learning different things, helping folks in small ways where possible.

Arjun is also a very special character. He has lots of bad luck. He also loves to give excuses and complain. So folks literally run from him. Once folks are tired of listening to his excuses and ask him to stop, he tells them to go and simply screw themselves nicely.

Arjun has a parrot called Bobby that speaks a few phrases of his Mother Tounge. Bobby loves it when Arjun is at home.
Bobby doesn't like Arjun from being absent from home for long, bites him viciously, draws blood when he is away from home
the whole day and returns at night. Bobby also doesn't want other humans coming to their apartment, other than maintenance
workers etc., for brief periods. Bobby tells Arjun to simple tell other humans who get close to him to go and completely
screw themselves. When Arjun does this and reports it to Bobby, Bobby rewards him with heaps of kisses and love bombs.
So this works out ok for both of them.

In as long as one doesn't hurt others, steal, break things etc., one can do as they please. One big requirement in Quebec is the French Language, Quebec is a French Province. So the Government paid Arjun to learn French for a year, now Arjun is ok in French. Without a job Arjun is bored. So he calls up different folks, agencies etc., and gives excuses, complains, until they turn like cherry red.

Now to add to these excuses in person, Arjun is also an IT guy and is familiar with old computers, linux. He uses this knowledge to use these old computers to generate even more excuses, complaints. This works out very well.

The Government is forced to find a solution, they give Arjun a creative writing therapist 25 years of age. Her name is Zeyna.
After a few sessions, Arjun tries to convince Zeyna that her parents are boring and can't have sex. This is even tho Zeyna's Dad gave her Mom many happy sexy times resulting in the birth of Zeyna. Zeyna tells Arjun, look I am here and grown, if my Dad kept on giving excuses like you I would have very likely not been born. Hence, stop giving excuses and start writing some stories to share your life, feelings. Then all will think you are great. So Arjun tries to gather ideas from
experiences around his life to start writing stories.

Arjun is referred to a local agency that helps folks with personal issues. Arjun has very poor social skills, if he gets more friends and turns people friendly then his excuses and frustration will reduce greatly. As a part of
character development, this agency gives Arjun one free Karate class each week.

One of the Instructors assigned to teach Arjun, happens to be a woman named Melony. Melony has over 15 years of experience in the Martial Arts. She is friendly but a firm personality. She has big boobs and shakes them sometimes to intimidate folks.
Melony is another very interesting character actually. She loves to compete. So she goes to New York for Karate Competition, kicks the ass of some men and wins a trophy. Then she goes to Miami and does the same. Needless to say she has a show case filled with her trophies, medals in her home. Whenever she is in Montreal, she breaks boards to demonstrate her Karate skills. Due to these demonstrations, all men simply flee from Melony as they don't want any confrontation. This makes Melony feel very lonely and she cries in Karate class: Boo hoo hoo, no one loves me. Arjun feels very sorry for Melony
and chats with her after class. Melony likes Arjun as he is willing to listen to her. So henceforth they both decide to spend Friday nights at Arjun's place.

Here is a significant info., Melony is much stronger and bigger than Arjun, hence if they both try to have many happy sexy times together, then Arjun feels rightly that he will die in the process. So they have to remain best of friends.

For the first friday night together, Arjun provides the Samosas and Melony brings in some fries. Then Melony starts first and keeps on complaining why men avoid her.Then Arjun starts with his excuses of why he has not yet installed Arch Linux on his old computers. Melony has to listen to due to their sweet compromise, she is happy that atleast she has not been rejected. So after these excuses continue back and forth for an hour, they both kiss each other, hug and then go to sleep. The same continues each week after this. With time, Melony and Arjun get closer and live happily together ever after.

That sounds like a film called "Her". A man falls in love with his AI assistant (think Siri or Alexa).

Tip on how to install Xiphos on slacko based puppy Linux from a buddy. Haven't tried it myself yet but worth looking into.

Ok, you go to the online Ubuntu repositories and download each .deb necessary to install Xiphos and have it running. Then you extract each .deb and inside of the .deb you will see the filesystem folders, and inside of each folder the program itself or the depends, or whatever else is necessary. You take what is in those folders and put them in to the matching folders in your actual Slacko filesystem. Then you will have installed Xiphos without having to compile it.
I have done it many times when using Slacko.

I am starting to forget many things I learned in the Linux world and am just a small time user now. Wonder if I will ever
get back to learning those things and even more again. Life is leading me in a special strange way, so have to go with the flow.

I was very wrong here inregards to the man loving an OS. The above article gave me an idea. If someone is lonely, feels vulnerable, poor, has health issues etc., and wants a companion and if a virtual software can fulfill that need, then it must be ok. Better this than face other issues.

Thanks to support by wpeckham here, this time I kept opening the box my oil painting was in every few days to release the
buildup of gases. Made sure to keep my face a bit far away as I did this. Now this oil painting has dried in 3 weeks itself !!!
Maybe it even dried earlier but I didn't realize it. Have kept it out, it will dry further with time, but now it is ok for the touch.

Now I can do another one whenever I feel like it.

One of my geeky male friends was asked to do a strip show for a party, he got in an old PC, removed side panel and then removed all the components, as geeky as it gets. Wow, didn't even think this way before. They all learned and it is also not sin.
