Discussion

Amanda and Mason are channel surfing when they land on Friends. Amanda comments on how funny it is that even though the characters in the show are supposed to be just friends, they sometimes become lovers. Hmmm, does that situation sound familiar?

Amanda says she’s feeling cold, so she throws a blanket over herself and Mason and scootches up next to him. She’s closing in, but he doesn’t seem to notice anything out of the ordinary. He laughs at the show.

Though she’s starting to get frustrated, Amanda suggests that she and Mason change clothes. She says she brought her overnight bag. But Mason just continues to laugh at the TV and changes the channel because there’s a commercial.

Will he ever notice that she loves him?

Lol I see …

A bit embarrassing for Amanda who is trying her best to catch his attention and warm up together … Mason does not seem to be receptive to her hints. Either, he is doing it on purpose, or he really is a stupid man (lol!).

Whatever …

During the Channel Surfing .  Amamda did some comments on the Show " Friend" . I thought that amanda was giving a hint to manson . Just as her comments ," Star as friends , but end up in bed together ".

I think amand have many skill to hunt for Manson , through such action as Scootching next to Manson in a same blanket " .Manson now had not too much feeling about this , However  Manson couldn't escape from Amamda's hand.
