Someone mentioned something about a “side chick” the other day and I had a moment where I realized how much less elegant that sounded than the more traditional moniker of “the other woman.”
Then I realized how weird it was that I was thinking of terms of affairs as in any way elegant or classy. I mean, they’re just affairs. They’re not cool. They wreck people’s lives.
Nonetheless, we’re only human, and we find ourselves caught up in them all too often. Here’s a little bit of what that’s like.
12. Their baby
To be on the outside looking in.
11. To date again
Personally I don’t believe in karma. Just let yourself improve and move forward, I say.
10. Playing the part
What are you gonna do when it all comes to a head?
9. Share and share alike
This guy sounds like a real gem.
8. Stay with me
Ah yes, the beginning of a very stable and cool dynamic.
7. Dead on arrival
Oh what tangled webs we weave.
6. Home wrecker
But when you fell, what did you land on?
5. Can’t stop won’t stop
Our baser feelings override our higher thinking.
4. Kills me
What do you even do with something like that?
3. What a twist
Oh fireworks are gonna blow eventually.
2. So deserving
So is this guy just like an amazing cook then or what?
1. Doing my part
A classic justification.
I guess the moral of the story is just: don’t be the “other” person. It’s way too messy.
