The Other Man

I’ve cultivated a very close relationship with another man, and I can no longer hide it from Mr. Lonie. It’s been developing so slowly I didn’t even notice how intimate we had become until recently.

The realisation that we are practically inseparable hit me today. It was not a comforting thought, because the kind of closeness that we share is not a healthy one, particularly as I’m a married woman. The worst part is, Mr. Lonie knows. The man I married has discovered I let him down and I let myself down, yet he still loves me.

It’s time to put a stop to it – it’s time to say goodbye. As painful and as difficult as parting with him will be, I have to do it. There’s just not enough room in a marriage bed for me, Mr. Lonie and Mr. Hugh Jarce.

Theres no need to talk about me in public... hows tricks with you by the way? My little dog died - it was very sad...

Aaah, the dreaded Mr Jarce. If it's any comfort, he isn't a one woman man. I find vigorous stair-climbing tends to send him packing.

Hey Mutley...tricks are okay. I'm sorry about your dog :(

Hello HB, yes I've seen him hanging around other women. How generous of him to share the love.

I also have that Asian guy Mr Tu Chin.

Funny that you should be posting about similar shite to myself. Excpet yours has been done in such style, mine is just whining.

Hi Jules, what the hell are you doing stealing my man Tu?

Embrace the whining - it works for me ;)
