Anatomy of an affair

There she is …svelte, sexy and slim, the seductress.  I remember the days when he used to look at me the way he looks at her now.  Always within his reach, never went anywhere without me.  Yes, I was the ‘other woman’.  I remember the wife looking at me with such hatred every time he came home with me cooing in his ears.  It was a blatant affair.    I was the sexy one compared to his tired old wife – grungy, frumpy, tired and angry.  I was new and shiny and he was always at my beck and call.   He gave me his undivided attention the moment I demanded it.  He left family dinners to be with me.  He took me on his family vacations.  I was the last thing he looked at before he slept and the first thing he reached for when he woke up.

But now, all that is history.  I have been relegated to the background, replaced by her –  newer, shinier, sexier, slimmer, vibrant.  He is totally addicted to her.  What is worse, the tired old wife also seems to be in love with her!  There they both are, in bed, with her!  While I gather dust,  alone in my misery.

You smile now, you vixen!  But your day will come – in six months, a newer other woman will emerge to replace you, the i-slut, the iPad!  Don’t worry – I’ll save you a place in the dusty shelf that is the graveyard of outdated technology.

The blackberry

Note:  This entry inspired by 3 guys at a recent dinner lusting over the new iPad 2 of the host.  One of the guys being my husband.
