Dealing With Those Difficult Relationships

This is how I resolved all conflict with my ex husband:

My Ex
My Ex

Yep, no Ex, no problems.  I would not, however, advise this approach for the casual dating relationship.  Disposing of the remains can be tricky and awkward.  But when used on a very infrequent basis this problem solving approach can supply one with enough stew meat to last for months and you’ll never want for authentic looking Halloween decor.

  1. Whoa Carter. Whilst I find it admirable that you come to the defence of the maiden in distress it should be noted that;

    a). Cat is no maiden (in the literal sense).

    b). Cat is not distressed (about my comment).

    c). I’m not the ex (but I could well be the next ex). Bring it on Cat. I’m ready!! lol

    d). It was an “in joke” that far from anger Cat made her laugh so hard that her posterior parted company from the rest of her “anterior” anatomy.

    But thanks for the chuckle 😉

  2. Just to curb my own curiousity, I had to look up the literal meaning of maiden. This is what I found:

    maid⋅en   [meyd-n] Show IPA
    –noun
    1. a girl or young unmarried woman; maid.
    2. a horse that has never won a race.
    3. a race open only to maiden horses.
    4. an instrument resembling the guillotine, formerly used in Scotland for beheading criminals.
    5. Cricket

    I agree, you are none of those. Of course, I then found myself checking to make sure that you aren’t an old maid, either, because, well, that’s what friends do for each other. You will be happy to know that you are not an old maid:

    maid   [meyd] Show IPA
    –noun
    1. a female servant.
    2. a girl or young unmarried woman.
    3. Archaic. a virgin.

    So, I’ve yet to define you, but by process of elimination I am confident that I will have a definition for you within the next generation…if I pursue matters that long.

    1. Ispyu,
      You totally rock! Yes, Enigmatic, there was a slight few seconds there where I considered taking an, oh so very slight, offense to your assessment that I was not a maiden (I do so wish that I was in so many ways) but ispyu has set me straight as you can see. You (Enigmatic) are so right, I am no maiden as ispyu by defintion has clarified…though…in spite of what either of you say, I still like falling back on the idealistic image of maiden…on occasion. It works with the fairy tale thing that I’m rewriting, if you know what I mean.
      In any event, ispyu and Enigmatic get it completely and, um, well, okay, enough said…
      Everyone here is making this fun and I like it!!!!!

  3. Why thankya!
    😀
    Maybe I should just leave it at that, but, come on, how many people look things up like that? That, my dear, is why I classify myself as geeky. Heck, the list is fairly long…maybe I should write a blog about my geekiness. 😉

    In the meantime, you need to check out my politician blog (http://ispyu.wordpress.com/2009/04/05/politicians/) The kids and I had so much fun at the Dollar Store today! lol

    oooo…that was bad. I just linked myself on your blog and I’m not even gonna delete it cuz I know you still love me.

  4. Geek:
    … “a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality …”

    Only a real Geek would be so overly obsessive as to research the literal meanings of innocous words then quote them on someone else’s Blog. Sheesh, I’d never do that!

      But you’re welcome to have chowder in SF with ispyu if you like. 🙂 I’m not so sure she hasn’t dealt with her ex’s the way I did … it’s just that now I have a bad reputation because I was so transparent and honest about it all you know?

  8. lol … I’m not an Indian giver (is that PC?). But let’s get it straight. Is it chowder or barbie. There’s probably less chance of me ending up skeletonised Ex#3 in SF but I can’t impress you by demonstrating my barbie expertise there. Hmmm, a cunundrum! To impress and die or to buy dinner and live? It’s a toughie!

    Don’t worry. I’ll ignore your bad reputation and take the chance that you’ve seen the error of your ways. And I’ll inform the authorities of my every move just in case so either works for me.

    1. Na, probably not PC, but point well taken.
      Chowder or Barbie? Hmmmm. I like to have my cake and eat it too (oh I’m sure you’ll have fun with that!)
      And don’t worry, I’ve never skeletonised anyone at the mere chowder or barbie stage. You’d have to marry me to earn that honor. So, the best strategy with me is just don’t marry me. The worst I do to anyone I date is simply kick them to the curb. And that’s not such bad treatment now in comparison is it? LOL!
      😀
      But seriously now, neither kicking nor skeletonizing is my first choice of methods for resolving conflict and allieviating tension. 😉

  9. Now now ladies. Kissed (plutonic! one has to watch everything one says nowadays) and made up? It’s a good job we’re not all on the same continent. One misunderstanding and 3 funerals!

    Anyway. Just to clarify, in light of your propensity to speak in metaphors, chowder does mean chowder and a barbie does mean grilled meat right? And cake is a baked product? Where does that leave the icing we’ve discussed?

    I’m soooooooo confused!

    ispy – I’ve never doubted your gender nor have I read anything untoward into your comments. I’ve been clear from the start that you’re 100% female and that you want me bad. Kudos for bowing out in favour of your good friend who, by the way, only wants me for devious culinary purposes.

    Now that that’s all sorted out maybe we can all learn from the experience and move on.

    TC!

    1. Enigmatic,
      You are so baiting me with that one!…I actually think you have the entire scenario confused. I’ll leave you to figure out what’s what because if anyone’s reading my posts either here or at Welcome To CABsPlace! of late, we all know I don’t know what the he** is what.
      And, for what it is worth BOTH of you are failing in reading comprehension here! I am the one who bowed out and she’s the one who wants you bad for reasons completely unknown other than it might be mere sport. I have no ideas about her culinary expertise since every time we’ve gotten together I’ve cooked…not that it has been that great…but at least I cooked…or tried…LOL…
      ispyu is so going to hate me for that! Gads and I have to see her at work tomorrow…no!.

    2. Hmmmm, not sure anything was “really” sorted out there…maybe it was all just completely shoved off the freaking table….I’m still planning Tahiti or Bora Bora…you in or you with ispyu??? or…will you lie? This could be very good. Let me give you the answers to this test: lying gets you skeletonized…telling the truth only gets you kicked to the curb…but at least you live…so, there you go!

      In looking back at that last comment of mine I realize it didn’t sound as much in jest as I intended. Sorry about that. The downside to print is sometimes it doesn’t read the quite the way you heard it in your mind when you wrote it…and…I prefer the third option, but, it isn’t the easier one.
