Off of the strippper pole, out of a 30 year plus marriage, and onto your first date since the divorce papers were filed makes life a real game changer. I guess we had to expect that this day was coming, but what we didn’t expect was who the first date would be. My friend received the most beautiful flower arrangement with a mysterious note that read” You should have picked me.” The whole thing caught her by surprise. Truthfully she didn’t get right away who the flowers were from, then it hit her like a bolt of electricity.
I guess it’s time to stop calling my dear friend “The Stripper Pole friend.” So for the sake of privacy I will give her a blog alias. So from now on I will refer to her as “Jane.” Why Jane? Because like Jane Fonda she has managed to never let her figure go, not even after having her children. She is amazing that way. Now back to our mystery man. When ex-hubby, and Jane first started dating there was another guy in the picture. To keep things easy to remember we will call him “Tarzan.” I should also let you know how fitting that blog alias is by telling you he was beautiful to look at from the tip of his head all the down way to the tip of his toes. A much wilder type than hubby.
Tarzan, and Jane had quite an exciting past. Her parents at one point actually threatened boarding school if she continued to see him. This of course only added more heat to an already hot relationship. Tarzan was actually Jane’s first lover. Wait, it gets even better… Tarzan was also ex-hubby’s best friend! Ex- hubby had a front row seat to Tarzan & Jane’s wildy hot relationship. He was often the third wheel when two of them where going out, and the cover guy who showed up at her door pretending to be her date so she could sneak off with Tarzan behind her parent’s back.
Jane was head over heels in love with Tarzan, unfortunately so was every other young girl in school. Tarzan began seeing other girls behind Jane’s back. This actually worked out well for ex-hubby who had also fallen for Jane, but never acted on his feelings because he knew Jane loved Tarzan. He was also his best friend so this was against every bro-code that has ever existed. Sadly Jane’s best friend did not have the same high standard for the sister code. She was seeing Tarzan behind Jane’s back!
Jane caught Tarzan, and her best friend in a most embarrassing encounter in the back yard of a raging little keg party. Needless to say she ended her relationship with both. Ex-hubby steps up as the white knight in this situation, and stands by her through the entire mess. He ends up losing Tarzan as a best friend by telling him that he is in love with Jane. Ex-hubby is a great guy. He was never the eye candy that Tarzan was, but he was a good looking guy with a huge heart. One thing lead to another, and they ended up in an almost perfect 30 plus year marriage.
Well guess who heard about Jane’s marriage ending? I’m not convinced this is such a good idea, but I can tell you by the look on Jane’s face as she told me this story that she does. 😉
There is two of us actually, G-uno and g2. We have been friends for a while, met through our own similarities in duality, openness and love of listening. Our differences as well as our similarities always border on the extreme.
