We interrupt this regularly scheduled, non-controversial and very-vanilla blog for a mini-rant.
I'm really getting tired of long-suffering women who stand by their man. Please stop humiliating yourself further by standing in front of strangers and vowing your comittment to "make it work". That's Tim Gunn's phrase anyway and he'll sue you over trademark violations and you've got enough on your hands. And I'm not just talking about the latest revelation, I'm talking about all the "stand by your man" events in the last few years.
It doesn't fly anyway because your eyes look like a deer whose just been hit by a semi......terror, betrayal, hurt....it's all there for us to see. Stay at home, let him take his lumps. I've been there, done that, got the scars to prove it. (CLARIFICATION: The Farmer reads this blog and he'll be mortified if you think it's him. My first husband was the bad boy and I made sure that the second time around I found someone who had a code of ethics that he lived by....a hard-working an honorable man. That's my Farmer!)
So, can I please get at least one woman who throws his crap out the second-story window on the lawn?
I'll promise to help her shoot the tires out on his car and change the locks!!!
Will you come along? What are you going to do for her? Babysit her kids while she visits the lawyer?
P.S. Do you have money in your lingerie drawer? You know.....THAT MONEY.
