The ability to fascinate others can come in handy in all sorts of situations. And one of them motivated Me to write this posting after My slave brought the facts to My attention:
Legendary star of stage Tallulah Bankhead (good Goddess above don’t you just love that name!?) was well-known for being a flamboyant, freewheeling, intense woman.
I am talking about way before any of us were even born but that isn’t the point. Here is the point….
At one time, she was engaged in a dispute with a young actress who was also in the cast of a play Miss Bankhead was in. Before one performance, the ingénue said she could upstage Tallulah. Bankhead told the bitch she could upstage her without even being onstage. I LOVE it!
In one scene in the play, Tallulah’s character places a champagne glass on a table and soon goes offstage. During a performance close on the heels of her dustup with the upstart, Bankhead puts the glass precariously on the table’s edge and exits. As the play continued, more and more of the audience’s attention became fixated on the glass. Would the glass stay in place? When would it fall from its perch? What kept the glass so delicately balanced? These were but a few of the questions that occupied the theatergoers who could not take their eyes or their minds off that glass.
The only thing those who saw this performance found memorable was the glass hanging off the edge of the table. Tallulah had proved her point and her powers. She had wrapped the audience around her little finger (or more accurately around the stem of that champagne flute) without even being on the stage as she did so.
Tallulah’s successful strategy for putting her rival in her place is an example of two FEMDOM HYPNOSIS FACTOIDS:
“IF YOU CAN POWERFULLY AND CONTINUOUSLY HOLD SOMEONE’S ATTENTION, OTHER THINGS IN THEIR VACINITY WILL LOSE ANY IMPORTANCE THEY MIGHT OTHERWISE POSSESS.”
“IF YOU CAN CONTINUOUSLY AND POWERFULLY CAPTIVATE SOMEBODY ENOUGH, IT’S POSSIBLE TO SPELLBIND THEM EVEN WHILE THEY CANNOT PERCEIVE YOU.”
So what’s your take and opinion on My Factoids?? 🙂
