the three missing things
more buxom paycheck
[lower case for speed, not affectation]
i asked him what were the big things that had been missing from our marriage. after he was already leaving us. i just wanted to know. i was asking for the deep empty places in the spirit that i'd failed to nourish.
1 "better clothes." ok, go on.
2 "better cars." right, what else?
3 "better vacations." thanks, got it.
wondered if maybe the ARMY would have suited him better than family life?
1 butch outfits (and free)
2 huge honkin veehickles that cost millions
AND blow stuff up
3 travel to exotic places
so now he's wearing boss, driving a gasosaurus, and marrying on a fijian island.
and he looks like a toad from all that better food and better booze and better couches and better TVs.
hey, turns out my ex just wanted a woman with a more buxom paycheck!
justice arrives in the form of one's own appetites, satiated.
