Three (or Four) Di·vor·cés: Foreshadowing the Finale

Like this.
Imagine if linguine came in a can, already cooked, packed in there like Ramen, and when you dumped it out, it came out as one long noodle and like Mary Poppins’ bag, you stare into the can wondering where the fuck the end of the noodle was – because god damnit, I’m hungry and I just want some fucking pasta already. That’s what the week when all divorcé hell broke loose and the proverbial divorced shit hit the proverbial fan was like. It started with one thing and never seemed to end.

Did you follow the analogy? No? Look back in the can.



So where the shit noodle began: Let’s start with Monday. No. Wait. In fact, let’s start with April.

Remember when I said I only knew one person who was divorced but it didn’t count?  Maybe it counts. Since College Chicago mostly takes care of himself, it seems the universe wanted to keep the tally at three. So back in April, the other divorcé confessed that for the past year and a half, he had a crush on me and wanted to ask me out. So he asked our mutual friend who, at first, say 'no' and then under the caveat of: only if you're really serious, 'yes'.  I suppose he wasn’t really serious for 18 months because April was the first I heard about us "making a good couple". (And I haven't mentioned this till now because 1. It didn't matter and 2. I said I wouldn't, but secret keeping ends when name-calling begins.)

Always completely oblivious to whether or not someone is looking at me like that because they like me or because I have food in my teeth, I had no idea. Even when my girlfriends were like “Oh, he’s totally into you,” I was the backseat going: Don’t be silly. That’s just how he is. This 'I like you' chat dance went on for a bit, then he took a break and a few hours later he came back online to ask if I felt the same way. Whatever he was doing in those couple of hours must of jostled up some courage, curiosity or at least an eh, fuck it, because then he asked: "Have you ever felt the same way about me". My answer was simply: No. I’ve been told by my coworker/male-mind guru that directness is the best approach. I struggle with it, but this guy loves himself, so I figured the rejection would go over just fine.

I think I was wrong. 

Which takes us back to that Monday: I was in Nashville; so was he; this group of friends is how we met. Over and over he kept slamming my moral character in one way or another. Granted, I think my sexual promiscuity (if you can even call it that) of late is amusing and, thus, I talk about it, I am in no way a 'slut'. 

Although, in a gynecological caveat, my lady doctor probably doesn’t think so: I went to my annual last month, which happened to be a few weeks after Derp (and Potato). She asked, “Are you sexually active?"

I first paused before replying, "Not this week." That's just bad phrasing on her part, but nonetheless lead to a quick discussion about “risky” sexual behaviors. I’m about ask risky as foregoing sunscreen on a spring day in Seattle: I mean, there’s a chance, but it almost never burns when I pee.

So finally we get to the point of Monday: Cachi was on a roll: Slut here. Whore there. Ho later. They were all jokes, of course. FUCKING HILARIOUS. So funny that I eventually exclaimed, “If you want to continue being friends, you need to stop attacking my character”. His retort was nothing short of a pathetic face-saving attempt that our mutual girlfriends had my back on. Also, jokes are funny, not demeaning.

Evidently his ego didn't stay quite in tact as I thought. But just because Joney doesn't love Chachi; that doesn't make her a slut. This was not a great way to start the week – or a day off – and I would soon find out it was just a bit a clever, foreshadowing of the ridiculousness that was to come...

Patek Philippe and Rolex consistently appear to apperception if top dollar watches appear up in conversation. Examples that were beat alone on break and in excellent or abutting to excellent condition, of course, accompany the a lot of money.

Ik ben erg enthousiast over de lederen band, want het is echt mijn verwachtingen overtroffen. Het is niet helemaal als het origineel, dat zijn kleine replica horloges nederland scheurtjes op, waardoor het een vintage gevoel heeft, maar het voelt zeer solide en de room stiksels, naast het geven van het wat diepte, komt ook overeen met de markeringen op de wijzerplaat en die op de bezel.

Over het algemeen, deze baby is een geweldig replica horloges panerai, echt mannelijk en zeker niet iets wat je elke dag ziet, dus het zal zeker een keeper zijn.

Ik denk dat de meeste Panerai replica's worden geleverd met een handmatig opwinden beweging. Deze Panerai Luminor Submersible replica echter, wordt aangedreven door een self-kronkelende Japanse beweging. Ik heb één ding te noemen, is het origineel niet over een see-thru achterkant van de behuizing, maar replica horloges rolex ik ben blij dat dit één heeft het. Ik hou van een snelle blik op het interne mechanisme van tijd tot tijd, vooral wanneer het zo goed gekloond.

Creo que siempre se puede salir con una buena calidad replicas relojes espana Rolex Daytona falsa no importa lo que simplemente porque vienen en tantas variaciones que la gente regular no puede decir lo que es lo que. Compruebe esto por ejemplo, ¿qué pensaría si sólo se le echa un vistazo a este reloj en un restaurante o un bar.

¿Falso o real? Sé que ustedes replicas rolex no esperan una verdadera revisión de Rolex de mí en cualquier momento porque sólo para tener los medios para hacerlo, pero creo que están recibiendo el punto que estoy tratando de hacer aquí. Me gustan
replicas breitling los toques finales y la apariencia de esta réplica Daytona Cosmograph. El buen oro amarillo chapado Rolex logotipo y los números y las manos y los cronógrafos también son de replicas omega oro amarillo. Me encanta el dial azul porque lo hace tan especial y le da un aspecto diferente. Es como un condimentado Daytona que es más divertido de llevar que un modelo regular en mi opinión.
