The other night I received a text from XXX. This is quite out of the ordinary, especially when he is in the midst of reconciling with his wife. We haven’t seen each other or spoken for a few months now. We email occasionally but simply on a professional level. It’s as though that period of time when we were sleeping together never happened. Either way I am good with it. I made a good move by leaving Big Cheese and XXX professionally. I hadn’t realized it until XXX started texting me. He started out by asking if I was “out on the town”. XXX has certain arrogance about him especially when he is in the midst of reconciling with his wife. Having known him for as long as I have I know now that this is a shield he uses when he is unhappy and when he is with her, whether he likes to admit it or not, he is very UN-happy.
Since I was snuggled up in bed and intrigued as to why he was texting me on a Saturday night I replied to his text. I didn’t actually speak with him but I guess he had an argument with his wife about his weight. Yes, there are times when XXX’s weight fluctuates and he just quit smoking so I know he put on a little bit but he is not obese by any stretch of the imagination. His wife is just a cunt and looking for any excuse to pick at him.
I jokingly asked if he wanted me to come over and finish what she started. He had taken her out to dinner and I suppose the argument was her way of avoiding sex that night. XXX “lol’d” my text then proceeded to tell me he was going to sneak out and sleep at his apartment because his wife has him sleep on the couch now because he snores…”since he is so fat”.
These are the things that make me furious. As if that wasn’t bad enough he started needling me about Auditor Guy. “How are things? Does he call you every day? What did he buy you for Christmas?” you know…all that crap. XXX was looking for some sign that I am as miserable as he is. He’ll never find it. Listen, everybody has their days and yes even Kitty has a bad day here and there but the joy of having my freedom is enough to keep me happy at least for now.
Last night I texted XXX to see how things ended up. I guess he got back in the bedroom so he blew me off like so many times before. XXX and his situation with his wife are never going to change. That is sad for him. I need to move on now.
