MARRIED MEN


The world is full of married men.

Let me explain:

A good friend - I'll call her Bess - told me over the weekend she is in love with a married man. Of course, she said, he is going to leave his wife.

As she told me of their steamy afternoon delights, I ordered another soy latte and bit my tongue.

Yes, I know better.

I've had experience - lots of experience - with married men. At first the passion is amazing and it all seems so refreshingly naughty - as if your dull life suddenly has a new sense of purpose. But then it gets messy. Feelings get involved, and eventually someone gets hurt. And yes, he never leaves his wife.

I didn't tell my friend any of this. Love is always on loan - never the nest egg we can depend on, so who was I to burst her heart shaped balloon.

I smiled and wished her well.

I had Pinkberry for the first and last time yesterday. Tastes like sour shit. Oh, and two smalls w/ 2 toppings were $ 10.51. Who the fuck LIKES this trash?

Well, I had Pinkberry again. I think I should nip this fat ass habit in the bud and pick up with married men.

Many folks love Pinkberry - I hear it's very addictive.

Provided you're a good anorexic, and eat nothing else throughout the day - and if you have the coin, what's the problem?

problem: 1. no coin, 2. not a good anorexic

Then I suggest you stay far away from Pinkberry.

For use out of the loop....What is a pinkberry?

Pinkberry is a fancy LA yogurt recently transplanted to NYC - the yogurt is around $8 per cup and the lines to purchase it are 50 deep - and that's on a good day.
