I have a fascination for inanimate objects. Show me a beautiful watch with its intricate mechanism on display and I shall sit transfixed for a long time admiring the craftsmanship in this creation. I like to touch one of my favourite suits relishing the sensation of the cloth. I will hold it up pleased with the way it hangs and then of course admire how I wear it in the mirror. A sculpture, a painting, a car or a piece of jewellery. They all invite my admiration. They are items of beauty and superiority and as such firmly belong in my world. Moreover, they do exactly what I want. I love my dishwasher. It always works. I press the buttons and it obeys my commands, quietly churning away as it removes the residue from the expensive crockery. The glassware comes out shining, without streaks or marks. Each and every time. Objects are reliable. They perform as I require them to perform. I love nothing more than an appliance. It complies, it obeys and it delivers. I love possessions.
I love to possess you and make you an inanimate object. That is how I see you. You are an appliance which I expect to do as I demand.You are but an extension of me, placed here to carry out my demands and whims. I like to attach brand names to my ex-girlfriends. Becky was Zanussi – she was good at science, thus she was the appliance of science. Sarah was Nike since I had to tell her to Just Do It.(she called me Burger King – have it your way, I quite liked her).Another was Energizer as she kept going and going and going (but that’s another tale). I like to think I am Tag Heuer (Success. It’s a Mind Game).I objectify everybody and assess how they can be a good appliance to me. Once that is done I have to acquire the appliance. I have possession of you and you must act as I dictate. All my other possessions do, so why should you be any different?

I hate authority. I am bad at being owned and he knows that.
Interesting post !
my Narc did in fact have nicknames for his ex girlfriends . Interestingly the only one he had a derogatory nickname for is the one who is his current OW . Hmmmm , why would that be?
I imagine he assigned me a nickname as well, wish I knew what it was /is !
Your articles are making me think of things that I have not thought about in decades !
Thank you !
And you, Mr. Tudor, are not an appliance nor anything else. Because who could possibly want you around?
If you love beautiful watches, then you know they have movements.
I feel like a blender ,peeled chopped and pureed.
Ha Pati, good one! I felt like a Whirlpool myself. Zanussi is a funny one, HG. I think of Zanussis as cheap and unreliable. Bosch would be more like it.
Miele is not bad.
SMH, good one too ! We have LG here which means life’s good.
I do like Bosch,i have a dishwasher its pretty good . My Breville toaster is good too. You just press a button and your toast is perfection . Just the way Narcissists like. Lol
Pati, yes, Breville toasters are seriously good appliances! I am sure narcs would insist!
SMH, exactly they work in a click of a button.
I like the fact thats its digital. Just hope its doesnt break down because it will be devalued lol.
Discard and replace if it breaks down. Meanwhile, get the Hoover out :).
SMH, lol exactly. Its nice to have a sense of humour on this blog. Thanks
I agree. It is nice to experience humour here.
NA, i also appreciate all your valid points on this blog. You are very smart !
Pati, Yes, I come here for the laughs and the serious discussions of art and literature. It satisfies both my low and high sides, though I am not a fan of scatological humor.
Same here SMH!
And the occasional kerfuffle, Pati. I find those equally shocking and amusing!
We could short circuit the connection to each of their appliances and hoovers of course. Send all the Ns of the world spinning into chaos mode.
I like the constant reminder of being appliances in the grand scheme. It helps remember to not go back.
Yes ,i agree Lorelei dont turn back once your gone.
And I know you are overwhelmed. I envision cutting a thick rope that is frayed for a period of time before it breaks. You are doing this.
Yes , it is a tug a war!
Yes it really does Lorelei.
Yes it does. I am so enjoying being my full asshole self rather than a puppet on a string or a toaster. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me.
Haha thats a good one love it Alexissmith2016
