Regarding the adult children who won't have contact with their father because of his affairage to her:

"It's so hurtful!"

Typical wayward. *sigh*

She mention compromising her values in regards to him smoking any thinking sheeze get a clue woman.


Cheating on your spouse not a problem

Telling your ex married man/now husband to stop smoking, she compromising her values because she is an ex smoker and wants him to stop.

Wow, I can't believe I didn't even notice how hypocritical that was until you pointed it out!

(I've now listened to this clip about 4-5 times, too.)

That could be why neither of us has a radio show.






But I bet people would pay good money to listen if we did. rotflmao

In hundreds of hours of programming, I think we've heard one or two where Joyce or Dr. Harley actually does starting laughing.

Those clips made me want to vomit. puke puke puke

And also LOL at the same time. I can't believe that some people can consider themselves victims of circumstances they created by their illicit and immoral actions.

Welcome to your wonderful creation! I hope you're enjoying your life as the perpetual OW!!!!!!

The Dervish and I had a conversation like that.

Me: Dervish, you are not to wash the dog tonight.
Dervish: But I would only be washing him, not actually...
Me: Dervish, you are not to wash the dog. Stop arguing.
Dervish: I'm not.
Me: You just argued. When I say not to argue and you disagree with me, that's arguing.
Dervish: No it's not.
rotflmao

It was a surprise to no one when the tired little teddy bear fell asleep a few minutes later. The way he was twitching, I suspect he was still arguing in his sleep.

That was tonight, BTW. But it happens often enough that it's not the great coincidence you might have thought.

Oh, and Pep, so glad you are feeling better and doing well. I don't dive off this board often (and am really not here as often as I would like to be) so had no idea with what you were dealing.

So very glad you are better. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
