    So, the wife drops this one on me this morning. For the last couple of years, she and some of her female co-workers have been going on a "Dear Widow's" weekend retreat. Basically, a bunch of girls get a party house and play stupid games. Now, it's no biggie usually, but this year they want ot make it a 5 day trip. Financially it's ok, but with a newborn and a 2 year old, that puts ALOT on me. The baby really cries when it isn't getting the boob. And she's up all night to boot! I don't want to say no, so I have to work this into something in my favor.

    If this was the other way around with me going away with a bunchof guy friends to a party house, all hell bould break loose or an all night crying bonanza would erupt about how she would be so worried about what we were doing, like I ever have been unfaithful. Christ, you women can really drive a guy nuts!:mad:

    Bring that up, then. Tell her if it were the other way around, she would flip a *****. Maybe if she can see it from your side, she'll reconsider, or at least reconsider freaking out when you take off with your buddies for the weekend.

    That's what I was going to say. Tell her exactly how you feel. Or you could also keep it to yourself and when, in the near futur, you do a 5 days activity with your buddies, bring her weekend retreat up. I always like it to have a secret power punch whenever I do something I think the miss will not like. :)

    A "Get out of jail free card". Yep, that is probably the way to go. They are not foolproof though. We all know how women like to twist things around on us. Somehow, I can see myself using it and it coming back to bite me in the arse.

    It's also how you phrase it. There are less chances of it bitting you in the arse when you say like "Well I thought it was okay to do that once in a while since you did it" than an accusation to the likes of "You did and now it's not okay to do it??". Innocence always win over aggression.. :)

    Do you see how they make the mistake and we have to be the nice guy when discussing it? It's like it's an implied concept. Aarghh! It's the b!tches that will getcha! My father once told me that his biggest fear is that my mother will turn out like her's. My grandmother was referred to by here grandchildren as "grandmonster". Evil old bag she was. Well my mother is turning out to be just that. I sure hope my wife doesn't follow suit. Scary thought that is....

    Acting nice and being are two distinct things. Saying, or pĥrasing, something that would please her to get something for you isn't really sucking up. It's actually using someone against themselves... :p

    Taking off for 5 days for a purely fun trip? Sounds pretty damn selfish. I mean, one or two days, fine. Most women I know would NEVER go for their husbands doing that -- but when they do it, it's fine? Stupid hypocritical know-nothing selfish b****es.

    Whew! I feel better now. Tell me how it works out!

    Things are heading along well with my new interest. The sheer amount of our SMS conversations is starting to make my Crackberry lag. Seriously.

    I know how you feel - the girl I am interested in keeps bailing on plans with me. Not sure if she is actually busy or if she just isn't interested anymore. Sucks balls.

    My eyes and ears tell me that a 16y/o chick has a strong interest for yours truly... emotional, and carnal. I'm a decade older, FFS!

    I never said I'm doing anything about it. It's... wrong both morally AND legally.

    Well DotW, you can always wait and see if she's still into you in 2011.

    If she's not really busy don't waste your time. Nobody is that busy if they're into you (or at least they make it clear that they'd rather spend some time with you).

    There are lots of other girls in the world. Especially when you're in college. I did waste a few college years because of a bad relationship, the kind that is dragging you down but that no matter how much you want to you can't let go. Don't make that mistake.

    Courage to you both Chicken and Saber!

    I had a really nice moment with a friend of mine who is just the epitome of all that I appreciate in a girl (smart, sensitive, funny, incredibly beautiful). Too bad she doesn't see me as a potential BF. Still, I guess I'm lucky, it's always so nice to hang out with her. :hippy:

    Just got done wooing the mother-in-law into watching the kids for 3 of the 5 days. Grandma time! 2 1/2 days to myself, picking up extra beer tonight, just to make sure I'm stocked. Gotta remember to put the pizza joint and chinese joint on speed dial. As a joke, which even my wife cracks up at, when I order chinese for delivery, I always run to our room and get changed. When I hear the doorbell, I answer the door in my tight boxer-briefs with socks and SANDALS on, a beer in my hand, a wife-beater undershirt with grease-stain and a camoflauge John Deere baseball cap. Then I ask the guy if he wants to stay and hang out as I scratch at me armpit. The looks I get are frigging hilarious. For some reason, nobody ever hangs out!:rolleyes:

    I just need a Mullet wig to finish off the costume. I'm bald as a bat, so I shave my head. Wearing the wig would be easy....

    Hey, if that means free chinese for the Blades clan, I say go for it. Need a name of a reliable realtor?:p
