In another manifestation of Venus Uranus (detached and odd) and Venus Neptune (ignore)… this conversation was from some months ago:
“You realize that virtually every woman you have ever slept with reads my blog don’t you? What do you think about that?” I asked the soldier. “I think it’s remarkable. They’ll all found you. All of them.”
“I don’t know what to think of it,” he said. “I don’t know why they’d be interested, no one has ever really liked me but you.”
I shrugged and looked at him. I am pretty sure the look on my face wanted to hold him responsible for this.
“What? So some women in my past read your blog. How many men in your past read your blog?”
I laughed but I am telling you I was stunned – struck dumb. “Well oh my God, I have never thought of that. I have no idea,” I said. “There may be someone.”
“SomeONE?” he asked.
“Get your point. Okay, lemme just say this: If they are all going to read my blog I am glad there are not that many of them. I mean you have not slept with all that many people… something I am very grateful for so guess what? I will not bring this up again. Even if they are all reading, every single one of them, there are very few so it should not be very hard to ignore so that’s what I’ll do. That way you’ll be happy because I won’t be bringing this up, I’ll be happy because I won’t be thinking about it and they’ll be happy too because if they want to read they can. I mean, the stuff is public and that means anyone can read. My old boyfriend’s new girlfriend reads too, come to think of it, what can I say?”
“People read your blog.”
“Yeah. And as to any of my old lovers who read, I’ve no knowledge of it and hopefully it will stay that way. Okay. Let’s not talk about this again.”
“Fine with me. I didn’t want to talk about it in the first place.”
How do you deal with your lover’s ex-lovers?
