Weather

Forgive the lack of updates – I have been kept v. busy with a distraught friend. She found out her husband is/was having an affair, and apparently part of her break-down required updating me frequently on her current emotional climate. Last week – stormy, with frequent spells of swearing and crying. But I – a true fair-weather friend - was a bit bored with it all, as:


  1. They have only been married two years, so it’s not like the husband has any great sentimental value.

  2. He never got her to sign a pre-nuptial agreement, so if he leaves or stays, she’s not about to end up revoltingly poor, being forced to travel economy-class, and drink methode champenoise, or whatever it is that the revoltingly poor do.

  3. It seems a bit hypocritical, as she’s been having an affair herself for ages (although, officially, he’s just a "very good friend.").

  4. She thinks no one knows about her “Very Good Friend.” Pffft. Hitting the town with a small posse of gay-men friends is quite clever – who would notice another male joining the party? But not clever enough. The gay-men friends are admirable for their loyalty, but not their discretion.

  5. Appeased by the husband’s presentation of a $28K diamond ring, her outrage reduced from a ferocious cyclone to a chilly passive-aggressive breeze, which would seem to bring us back to point #1.

but a 28k ring is only about 2 high grade carats? That's not enough to make up for infidelity. Infidelity costs at a minimum 3 carats. From the economy class methode champenoise comment, I'd presume hubby is quite rich, and the 28k is perhaps a few weeks salary? In which case he obviously doesn't care at all...

:D

Mrs Smith, what would your minimum charge for your husband's infidelity be?

Mrs Smith said...

a. It's not the first item of jewellery she has received in this way, so I guess he is paying her off in installments.

b. His painful and gruesome death.

Where can a girl find a man this stupid?

Really.

So if he finds out about her infidelities, what does she buy him ? 'I bought you a ring, bitch! I want a helicopter.'

I think it's called "Thunderbird", actually...
