Thread Name: BS: What did your ex do after you ?
Subject: RE: BS: What did your ex do after you ?
I have never been married in any sense of the word, legal, religious, or even informal, so I don't have an ex. But I have had three pretty serious relationships, and here's what became of each significant other. No. 1: older man, married but living apart from wife and kids, political activist and somewhat notable musician. He's dead. No. 2: woman approximately the same age as me, biology teacher, now retired, has new and younger honey bunny, spends a couple of weeks each summer in P-Town on the Cape, flies South for winter, not a musician but likes mostly jazz. We're still good friends. No. 3: woman 12 years my junior, very sexy, registered nurse, heavy into C&W, rockabilly, honky-tonking. We're not on very good terms at the moment, but that too shall pass. As Woody said of his first wife, "She was right from her side and I was right from mine." Dylan reworked that line into One Too Many Mornings: "You're right from your side and I'm right from mine." Isn't that almost always the case?
