13. Yeah, I'm sure one of these days I'll lose one, too.
Maybe.

3. Just be sure to remind your ex-wife that you have a real girlfriend,

4. Say what?
You post something that far off the wall, you owe us an explanation. And sooner would be better than later.

7. I'm watching our son while the ex does this 3 minute date thing.
Basically, she goes on 15 "dates" during which she talks to a guy for 3 minutes. Afterwards you can exchange phone numbers with anytone you may be interested in.

I agreed to help my ex go out anytime she asked (we're on good terms, obviously), but tomorrow is my day off and as soon as she gets home I'm making the 3-4 hour trek up to see Sarah (who I haven't seen for 3 days and I miss terribly).

Make sense? :D

6. Oh, wait a minute. I bet I've got it figured out.
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 09:10 PM by Redstone
Your ex is out for one of those "speed dating" things, and you gotta watch the kidlets until she's done. So even though each of her "dates" is only 3 minutes long, she's gone the better part of the evening.

Am I right?

17. Why can't I help thinking that "speed dating" is a sign of sheer
desperation, not to mention incurable yuppiness?

Could it be that I think of it that way, because that's the way it is?

Those rooms must be absolutely bursting with the aroma of flopsweat. I'd sooner do without a woman than debase myself like that.

16. Don't know. She still isn't home.
:grr:

At this point, she BETTER have exchanged phone numbers with at least one extremely rich man.

I miss you, sweetheart. I'm so sorry this is taking so long. :cry:
