She who has no name 

Wife, 1920. 


Reminds me of a doctor I used to work with in a teaching hospital. A resident would put their hand on the patients bed. He would snap at the resident to stand back. If he had a ruler he would have likely snapped it upon the residents wrist. Years later I saw this doctor with his wife outside of the hospital at the airport. Naturally I said hello. His wife smiled sweetly. I extended my hand, she accepted. He said smugly, “This is wife.” 

Was he rude? Was he on the spectrum of autism? Was he socially awkward? Who knows? I was not fulfilled with this answer. I said, my name is Keri… I’m sorry I didn’t quite get your name? She replied… but now the name is lost in my memory. 
This is wife.

Your cheating heart

This isn’t anything new. A lot of us women have been dealing with this bullshit for a long time. Hell this song is from the 1950’s, if that says anything. Meet a man, have some fun, and then find out he has a girlfriend, or a wife later. In some cases, some of us just happen to have the poor luck of being the wife who is being deceived. It’s certainly happened to me on both ends.
Nobody wants to be a home wrecker, and ain’t nobody really wants to be a part of deception. There really are no rules to this dating/relationships thing, but there has to be a mutual understanding, or even at the very least a common decency to respect the person you’re with. It’s called clear communication, owning your shit, and being an adult. Be strong enough to say quit when you got to quit. Save yourself the trouble, before you drive your woman crazy. Because that same woman will stop giving you sugar, and in turn dump some very different sugar in your gas tank.

– It wasn’t God who made honky tonk angels… –

As I sit here tonight the jukebox playin’
The tune about the wild side of life
As I listen to the words you are sayin’
It brings memories when I was a trusting wife
It wasn’t God who made Honky Tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men think they’re still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong
It’s a shame that all the blame is on us women
It’s not true that only you men feel the same
From the start most every heart that’s ever broken
Was because there always was a man to blame
It wasn’t God who made Honky Tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men think they’re still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong
