That instant you realise you have really messed up!

Postby tom84std » Fri Oct 05, 2012 8:32 pm



I'm a Grandfather with an adult daughter and two ex-wives. The first was for 24 years. The second lasted 14. A couple of days ago my first wife agreed to come over and help me clean my filthy house. She's been here for three days and I must admit the woman has cleaned her little butt off. The place is actually looking livable again. Words can't describe my appreciation for her help. I've made grilled steaks and good stuff every day. Last night I was grilling BBQ Chicken and wonderful sides. She was in the kitchen and I was in just for a short time while the meat was grilling. "Kathy" I said "I appreciate so much your help with this place."

I went right back outside to check on the chicken and realized.

Her name is Ann. Not Kathy.

I've been afraid to sleep since then.

That is a pretty big "Awww Sh*t" moment alright. Perhaps you should feign Alzheimers for a while. Next time you speak with her, call her by your daughters name, then 20 minutes later call her Joan. Then an hour later, seem all bright and lively and call her Ann. She might buy it - but I doubt it.

Or, you could fess up and let her know you realize you messed up. She might forgive you.

Well I gave up. From now on it's nothing but "Baby" or "Darlin' ".

It has been my experience that this does work. I don't think I have called a woman by her given name in twenty years, and this includes my wife and any of her sisters. There are lots of endearments that suffice just as well and require no memory whatsoever. Good luck with your first wife.

Well Viking, I must admit I was taken a little aback the other morning. After living alone for all these years with a little calico cat, I went into the bathroom only to find ladies' under things hanging to dry from the towel rack and shower rod. It's been a while since that's happened in my house!

You will realise change has really happened when you find the calico cat hanging on the clothes line in the bathroom! :shock:

Well, I took her home today. My house a lot cleaner, good visit from the mother of my only child. Grandmother to the little kid I call "Tooter". It was a nice visit, but it was even nicer to drop her off at her house and drive away. Now I can play my horn in the dark and my poor little cat can relax without my Exwife's stupid little dog here in the house. Still I can't forget why I fell in love with the woman in 1975 in the first place and that quarter of a century we spent together.

Yeah Viking, easy to see how a girl like that could catch an eighteen year old kid's eye and keep him faithful for over 25 years. We still get along well even if we're no longer married. With a daughter and a grandson I guess there's still ties. She'd move back in if I asked her but there's been a lotta water under the bridge since '98 when we split. Now I'm an old single guy with a motercycle in the kitchen and a little calico cat to keep me company. I just don't see a lotta reason to make any drastic changes. Besides, I can't stand that stupid little dog of hers. The old horn? My mother paid $130 for it when I was 13. I studied it hard and played in bands for a lotta years. I haven't felt compelled to even play it since I lost my piano accomaniment when the second one moved out two years ago. Just three flat spots in the carpet where the thing used to sit. I hope I can muster the mood more often to sit in the dark and play jazz till my mouth's sore. I did last night and it felt like visiting a long lost friend.
