On the Side

There are times when I think I have achieved the ideal form of monogamy: I spent the day with my husband for our anniversary, and now I’m about to go out to a lesbian club with my girlfriend. (And yes, I prefer thinking of Betty as my girlriend on the side, not as my wife. It’s sexier, no?)

  1. You’re going to make any number of people sick with jealousy…but I say congratulations to you both…


  2. Yes, sometimes the slightly naughty idea of having a ” girlfriend” is a joyfull thing. We can be very silly,sexy,silly and play in a sexual way that Dave just can’t seem to get into, why DJ can and Dave can’t, who knows.
    I’m happy to hear about your happyness, good news is always wonderfull to hear.
    We’ll be away for some time this week and next, so a lot of MHB will pile up…..
