Hello everyone. Hope you guys had a good weekend and started this week lekker refreshed!
This weekend was a bit of a blegh one. I only recovered from that blooming migraine on Saturday afternoon. And once I’d recouped, I decided to air the dirty laundry.
So Boo and I had it out. I had grand plans of being discreet (i.e. beating about the bush) before getting to the actual question. Something like
Are you still happy?
Do you still think I’m attractive?
Do you think our marriage is stronger now?
Are we honest with each other?
So why the HELL did you not tell me about this SMS?
Anyway, I sommer dove right in. Couldn’t take the pussyfooting any more.
He looked gobsmacked
Boo: What SMS?
Me: That SMS from THAT tart
Boo: Refresh my memory
So I refresh his memory. And check his phone. It’s still there…..
Boo: Oh THAT. She only sms’d to say they got home safe, man, it wasn’t like THAT
Me; EXCUUUUSE Me? (so I repeat in a very sarcastic voice what she wrote) “Hi, just getting into bed now…XOXO”
Boo: What does XOXO mean?
Me: (ready to klap him) Fuck it! FOCUS PLEASE! Getting into bed….why does she feel the need to tell you she’s getting into bed…
Boo: Well, I didn’t think it strange, maybe she didn’t have time to sms or call, so ….
Me: You are too effing gullible
Boo: AND you have an overactive imagination.
Silence. Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t
Boo: There is nothing there. I gave her my number to call and confirm if they got home OK (her husband was sloshed, she had to drive, and she looked upset).
Me: So why did you never tell me about this?
Boo: Seriously – something stupid like this? Don’t we always do the same with any of your friends visiting. When you are out of it? (note to readers: in case you were wondering, I am not ALWAYS out of it, OK?)
Me: She’s NOT my friend
Boo: (now getting upset) Well, I’m telling you, there’s NOTHING! You can believe what you want to. The only reason why I never told you is because it was a non-issue for me. In any case, I forgot about that sms.
Me: So why didn’t you delete it?
Boo: Jirrie, I’m not going into this again. YOU delete it, coz’ YOU have the issue
I leave the phone alone
Boo: Why were you snooping. Why don’t you trust me? Do I ever hide important stuff from you? I thought we dealt with this shit?….
Which brought on a whole new issue I was so NOT ready for. The attack shifted to me and my shortcomings (me being cold, unforgiving and unapproachable – we won’t go into this now). Which was basically why I was reluctant to confront him in the first place. Sigh
He looked sincere, so I am taking his word for it.
So there you have it. All innocent. I still don’t think she’s all innocent. But she’s not MY problem. YET. If she dares trying anything again….
So, what’s your verdict?
PS: And I told my BFF about her sister’s escapades. She was hopping mad – at me, for not telling her when I found out. And of course at the sister. Whoo, I’m waiting with glee for the outcome of that confrontation…..
