I went to Marcella’s store again this morning, because I didn’t want to be a stay at home lump.
While I was there, John’s mother called three times!
And then John texted. He wants me to meet Jewel. Why? Why? Why?
I didn’t text back.
Didn’t want to go to yoga with Marcella. She offered to cancel her date with Angelo, but I didn’t want to be that pathetic.
I texted Tyler.
He sent me kisses and hugs, and indicated he was busy.
I texted Cody.
“Are you seeing anyone else?”
“Just Nika, Mom.”
“Again? I thought you guys broke up?”
“How do you know that?”
“She told me.”
“Oh. Well, yes, we did. We still hang out every once in a while.”
“Ok, love. You don’t have to explain anything to me, you know.”
“I know. Mom, there’s something I want to tell you.”
“You don’t have to, honey.”
“I want to. I need you to know—all the girls I’ve dated, all the girlfriends I’ve had? I know there have been lot.”
I laughed. My little tomcat.
“There have,” I typed.
“I never cheated on any of them, Mom. It was always—one at a time. Or casual, we all knew it wasn’t exclusive. I promise.”
OMG. Son. Why do you think you need to tell me that?
I know why.
I burst into tears.
“I know Cody,” I typed. “I love you so much.”
“I love you too, Mom. And Nika loves you too, you know. I hope the two of you will keep in touch.”
“We will, my love.”
And that was my pathetic day.
Conclusions: I hate John and I am not going to meet Jewel and her thoroughly average breasts.
Or check the voice mails from my EX mother-in-law.

goddessofvictory: Nika loves you SOOO MUUUCCCHHHH, Mama Susan!
ilikeherbooty-full: Who’s Angelo? I thought Marcella’s new dude’s name was Brad.
susan-oh-susan: Yeah, she’s been dating Brad for a couple of weeks, but also texting with this guy called Angelo. I think it’s their first date? I don’t think that will come to anything.
BeautifulThingsEveryday: What the fuck are you doing Susan? Do not tell this pervert things.
ilikeherbooty-full: You’re such a slut, Marcella. I like that in a girl I’m not dating, ha ha ha.
BeautifulThingsEveryday: That makes no sense.
ilikeherbooty-full: Think about it.
