Singlarity: Question of the Week

16 Feb

I have a question I’d like answered. Say you’re a man who is getting divorced and you have several small children. You’re still in love with your soon-to-be ex-wife but she’s done with you. Is it really fair for you to put yourself out there on the market before you’ve even gone to court to decide child custody and to use another woman to help you get over your ex-wife and rebuild your self-esteem, especially when that other woman probably won’t be the one to become stepmother of your children?

That being said, I had a fantastic time because I was with family and my family loves to laugh at everything. So every trial, every awkward circumstance and every crossroad was met with humour and believe me, they let me have it when it came to the VPL/wedgie combo. My little cousin put it best when he asked in all seriousness, “Why you bottom keep eatin’ you panty?”
