Was it you Ark that had the babble quotes? I thought it was Orchid.

I was looking for those posts that had the fog babble for Amy Maree last night and went through 60+ pages trying to find them! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" />

Oh well,I'm glad you did.They are funny.

Alberta: Could you be referring to the OP and WS Hallowe'en costume thread?

You happened to mention some (typical) "breakfast" foods... and I remember the #1 costume choice for a WS was dressing up as a giant WAFFLE!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" />

Hey Alberta, you really do have a good memory>
I went to the 'read only posts' and put bacon and pop tarts in the search and came up with the following:

And maybe she fed him pop tarts and bacon to hold him till he got home....
If and when the wife finds out, I hope she can at least get a few laughs out of it. I think I'd rather have a memory like that then wondering if it was filled with passion. Kinda hard to recreate the moment huh?

Pop Tarts and Bacon...

You are talking about Lostva (Lori)... and her H's VERY FORMER Other Woman. This is what she made for dinner. Veeeeery nutritional!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" />

There were MANY MANY MANY posts about this - and then when we had "cyber bus parties" they were always brought along. Ha ha <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Man, funny, because just today I wrote about Pop Tarts... and I thought of Lori and that nutty OW! I bet that post from Linda Beth was from one of those threads. They were a hoot!

I believe "poptart" or "pop's tart" was the nickname of the OW in Lostva's case.

I had this long post babbled out about the fog...and things people say when in it...and kaflooey...gonzo...

first off in doing this search I came up with multiple posts by WAT with direct links to aliens and recent sightings...including the crazy french cloners.... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" />

Anyways...wanted to babble about the fog...

this is how I see the fog...
first off it's just a term for lack of better clarifying the multiple rationalizations that WS use to justify poor and cruel choices REGARDLESS of the feelings behind it..
and it's a lot easier to type...than
f-o-g...
than my-spouse-who-is-currently-suffering-from-what-we-assume-is-temporary-fleeting-psychotic-neurosis- <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />
f-o-g... yep...definitly easier...

Although WS I am sure interpert the use of fog as derogotory....I don't think it is meant that way...

And it's not even used to deny their confusion and feelings about the OP..but pulling people be it BS/OP down with you in your lies...reflects greatly on your ability to look at yourself in the mirror...and sleep at night...

I believe that WS do this because it is the nature of where their lives are at...and that they do it because they must do it to keep from getting close too and in touch with the reality of their actions...

That fence sitting WS unable to face or like themselves do this..
if they were sure what they were doing was sooo right...face it ...they'd be gone...

Do they know it ?...
I think they know they are doing it...and that they know how irrational they are being...but lets be frank...all of us have continued down a path of riduculousness now and then to save our butts or to beat a dead horse...even while somewhere deep down knowing exactly what we were doing ..wasn't quite true...

the common threads..
the I love you not in love...
the we never should have gotten married.
the I have to see if this is the right thing...
blah blah blah..

all of it deflects and removes them from responsibility...

if you think the fog is scary...scarier is the wayward spouse who clinically states the marriage is over...and it really is...

WS spewing fog talk attempting too appease and please the OP and the spouse at the same...are so caught up in their own hurtful actions...it has no other choice but to cut them to their very soul...and too deny that pain...it is easier to keep laying on the deflection....

if you are in plan A..and hear the fog....feel pity for even they know what they are saying is for their own ears in hopes they can convince themselves enough to believe the babble...

if you are in plan B...thank God each night you no longer have to be the receiver for such chaos and rewriting of history...

if you are in WATS plan...wear foil anntennaes on your head...and wait for the mother ship to come back and retreive it's lost little babbling aliens...

Oops - is this the fog? New research says, "yes"
