另類詩人

Blogger seems sad or stressed out from her cryptic post. She told a story that includes a game/challenge so I turned myself into a 另類詩人 to try to cheer her up a little. Here is an excerpt from her post to give you some context (emphasis added),

昨夜星辰昨夜風,畫樓西畔桂堂東。
身無彩鳳雙飛翼,心有靈犀一點通。
隔座送鉤春酒暖,分曹射覆蠟燈紅。
嗟余聽鼓應官去,走馬蘭台類轉蓬。

李商隱《無題》

無意中想起這首七律,也想起那個有關「心有靈犀一點通」的故事

倒忘了是從哪兒看來的故事,說慈禧太后當年召見新科狀元,正聊得興起,忽發其想丟了個難題給這位才子,說曰李商隱有句「心有靈犀一點通」雖是好詩, 但改為「靈犀一點有心通」似乎比較合適,於是請狀元據詩意平仄改寫上句。結果新科狀元茫無頭緒,尷尬不已,沒幾天便辭官歸故里了。

Not as someone who like rules nor feel bounded by them, I changed the game and have some fun my way.

You see, 「身無彩鳳雙飛翼,心有靈犀一點通」or 「???????,靈犀一點有心通」 雖好 but let me change this game a little. While I am no poet, 以下如何?

「醬油燒烤雞飛翼,乳酪一點通心粉」

How about this food variation? :) I hope I put a smile on ‘s face.

P.S. I actually enjoy chicken wings and it is one of my special dish but I can’t say I ever like mac & cheese.

P.P.S. I was fortunate to come across the book Co-opetition some years ago. Since then, I’ve viewed the rules in games/business dealings/negotiations as something that can be changed to benefit everyone involved. So game theory sometimes actually applies to game too. :)
