Boy Toy took a shortcut, probably Christmas 2017 around the time that his dad died. No real desire to shop for Kooky Girl? Post-funeral lethargy? Lack of gift ideas for a woman he knows is not “The One?”
Who knows. Maybe sheer convenience.
But in early December 2017 I’d returned to him two sterling silver and turquoise southwestern-style rings he’d bought for me in Scottsdale, Arizona, while on a golf trip to relax after his first round of chemotherapy for bladder cancer. Our relationship irrevocably done, I’d wrapped them up and sent them back to his P.O. box with no note enclosed. Returning them was message enough.
Saw them being offered on eBay by Kooky Girl recently, and thought: he probably gave them to her for Christmas in 2017. Or maybe as a thank-you for seeing him through his SECOND round of chemo early in 2018.
I bet she has no idea they both were once worn by me! Second-hand jewelry….pun intended!
A former mistress (26 years, on-and-off) describes the good, the bad, and the ugly of her long-term affair. Conclusion: Affairs aren't necessarily destructive if kept in the correct perspective. Our experience enhanced BOTH our marriages.
That is, until his marriage ended and we began to love each other. When the affair morphed into a relationship, well, that's when it stopped being fun for me. We have now irrevocably split.
Lately I've been writing about the man who took his place in the "off" years of that 26-year-long affair. He was a dynamic sexual partner but we, too, now have irrevocably split.
These are our stories.
