The Affair

My husband is having an affair!  It's been going on for years and years.  Even before we married, he was involved with the "Mistress".  She is his first love.  His affair has effected the entire family.  His wanton ways have rubbed off on his children.  He introduces her to everyone, with no shame whatsoever.  His grown sons applaud his escapades and are following the same path.  He encourages them every chance he gets.  When we first married, he boldly invited her into our home, almost daily.  She was a constant companion on weekends.  She still is an ever-present competition.  I believe if it ever came down to choosing between us, she would win, hands down!  I cannot compete with the joy she brings him.  His mistress... MUSIC!


Discussing the Mistress

My husband collects vinyl LPs and 45's.  It's a passion.  Since my Second Son, a chip off the old block, also collects, I asked him to give me an estimate on the number of records he figures his Dad has.  His guesstimate was 100,000!  Mine was at least 50 to 60,000.  He's probably closer.  



                                      

Now I guess you have an idea why I can't compete with his mistress.  She's had her hooks in him, way too long.  As I'm typing this, she is lulling him with her charms.  I can hear her... the WITCH!

It's a lost cause. So sing along.

Wouldn't that be considered a menage a trois?

Too funny! You know what's even funnier? I looked at your profile - Pasadena, TX? When I left TX I was living in LaPorte. Can you say neighbors??

I got your "code." It's a small, small world - made even smaller with technology!

My dad is like that with art and books! In fact, if I get him a book for Christmas, it has to be the last present opened because he would just tune out for the rest of the day if it was the 1st!!

"Girl", I sympathize!

That is hilarious! My wife says I have two mistresses or "shorties on the side" as well: blogging and video games. That was seriously such a great setup to a post!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Welcome Geof and thank you! Not sure how your wife feels about it, but my husbands "Mistress" is very tough competition and I'm not nearly competitive enough anymore!

Geof said...

LOL it's pretty bad. While I've been distancing myself away from the games recently, I hear about my Mistress Laptop on a daily basis.

Good luck with that, I'd be lost without my computer... unfortunately, I have to share, so he can keep feeding the "Mistress!"
