My Husband is Having an Affair

Written by Rose

It’s happened before but this time I saw it coming, this affair my husband is now carrying on nearly every night.

I’ve given up ignoring it.

Sometimes, I even watch.

It’s like watching a race horse in motion: fast, muscular, smiling but dangerous and makes talent look effortless.

Oh, my husband has flirted with her in the past, shamelessly losing himself to her wily ways.

This time, though, he sees her several times-a-week; she has completely captivated him.

She’s poetry-in-motion yet primitive, sometimes even crude.

She’s like a precision sports car and often leaves collateral damage, pain and wreckage in her wake each night without even a thought.

Her name?

No Hope, Ladies.

Nights Husband-Less.

Nevermind Hairdos or Lace.

The NHL.

Yes, ladies, as many of you know, the NHL is now back on air after a long hiatus and this season (or, should I say, what’s left of it) her seasonal flirtation with our husbands is now a super-saturated-hockey-concentrate of 48 games compressed into the relatively few weeks remaining between now and the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

I can see this calls for pulling out all the stops; perhaps I can get my husband’s attention if I don a truly irresistible little number that I save for just such occasions…

My hockey jersey.

So, what time’s the game on tonight?

    Hmm! There are MANY of us who have the same thing happening in their homes – just think if the power goes out – such crying we would see!! I, too, have now become a PENGUINS fan, a STEELERS fan, a college football & basketball fan to “stand by my man” as some would say, since his other favorite fans got married, left home & started their OWN fans watching with them!
