“Yes, I have. She promised him to make sure I followed my curfew and stayed clean.”
He’s been a big fat something, all right, but not a success.
Didn’t this all end with the trophy wife taking his money and dumping him?
Poor Mark. No matter how old you are, it’s tough when you hear your parents fight.
Roland’s twit is especially pithy this morning: “…stone’s throw from the Muslim Quarter…” indeed.
Trudeau’s hit the bullseye in the portrait of Mark’s father. He is typical of a certain type of man of his generation and age. The selfishness and egotism of the character, certainly is spot on. Reminds me of someone, currently residing at 1600 Penn. Ave., in Washington, D.C. !
Phil Slackmeyer has come up with a great retort here. The next time my (only) wife says something critical, I’m going to say “That’s a typical first-wife remark!”
Some advice for Marilou:
Sometimes they’re hard on us, the womenMaking our lives hell, just ‘cause they canRelive the bad timesNot talk about the good timesDon’t know why, I don’t understand Stand on your manMake sure you squash his egoLike Oprah on TV, noEnd to humiliationStand on your manAnd show the world you’ve squashed himFlatter than a pancake in a panStand on your man
After seeing this fine example of classic male behaviour, Mark still wants a man as his partner? What’s with that? Maybe he’s looking for the ‘nice’ dad he never had…
HMMM. Let me think. The last mayor of my city who was unelected, also had trophy wives. 2 of them, probably on a 5 yr contract each. He also went to the Academy of Donald Trump, where he took the course Lying Sniveling Weasel 101. History truly does repeat itself.
Also a typical first-son remark, as I recall.
