Hey All,<P>Funny thing happened in the grocery store today. I turned the cart down the aisle and who should I run right into but My X the OW and her daughter. Not even thinking about what I was saying I said, "Hi Dear". He looked at me and said Hi,What are you up to." I told him I was going to make hot taco dip because the kids and I and some friends were having Christmas tonight. (X loves hot taco dip) Anyway I then told him that our D had just been involved in a slight fender bender with her boyfriend. He looked at me and said," Not in our car I hope." I thought his girlfriend was going to explode. I don't think he relized that he had said "our" but I caught it and I know she did to. I really hope she thinks about it. She had to relize how comfortable we are with eachother and feel like total ****. I'm sure she felt like a total outsider. anyway I just kind of thought it was kind of funny.<P>Jill

Personally, I TRY to use those terms.<P>I try to use terms that includes her, even though she may not care to hear them. When she first left, I changed the answering machine message saying "leave me a message." She noticed. When I changed it back, she thanked me. [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com]<P>She doesn't talk to me in the same tone of voice if the OM is around. She is rather sharp sounding if I call when he is there at work. Otherwise, there is more civility.<P>A couple time I heard "we" and "ours" if I converse about the house or her car.<P>It seemed you had managed to pass up a majo LB moment.<P>rrunrr<P><P>------------------<BR>Almost anything can be undone or forgiven.<P>Never take trust for granted.

crazy or what,<P>You know what I believe? That nothing like that happens by chance. I really think there are stronger forces at work in our lives. Keep that in mind as you have these "chance" encounters and what appear on the surface to be coincidences.<P>It is nice to see that you are mature enough and dignified enough to handle things like you did.<P>Mike
