Back from DD's latest family therapy session. After the usual activities, DD left to grab breakfast, while wasband, the therapist (let's call her Lynn), and I talked.

As Lynn and I had previously discussed, I brought up the fact that DS had seen wasband's engagement post on FB via DD's login, and talked about how hurt and unimportant DS was feeling.
Wasband just stared at me, with a dumbfounded look on his face.

I said that as far as I could tell, DD had not noticed the post, but that she very easily could have seen it, and I was concerned about her finding out third-hand, as DS had.
Wasband = dumbfounded

Lynn took over, and mentioned that when DD talks to staff about the divorce, her biggest issue is that she feels like she didn't know it was coming and she felt left out and blindsided. She is still struggling with that.
Wasband = dumbfounded, but now staring at Lynn

Lynn and I keep looking at wasband, waiting for him to say something. Anything.
Wasband = dumbfounded

I could go on and on, but I think you get the drift.

After lots of prodding and pulling by Lynn, wasband finally spoke. And thus begins our play at home portion of today's show.

I'll provide you with some of wasband's more *intelligent* comments from today's session, and YOU, dear viewers, get to RESPOND to them Dear Wasband style for everyone's amusement. Sounds fun, right?

Ready? GO!

I guess I didnít think about that.

I guess I didnít consider whether DD might see it.

Well, DS and I arenít FB friends, so I didn't think he'd see it.

I donít know why that didnít occur to me.

That was not the best decision in hindsight.

Seems like that might have been short-sighted on my part.

Well, it hasnít seemed like a good time to tell DD.

DS and I havenít had many conversations lately, so the timing hasnít been right.

Iíve been out of town at the state fair and my phone died.

Bonus points awarded for anyone who can tell me HOW I MANAGED TO BE MARRIED TO THIS PERSON WITHOUT KILLING HIM IN HIS SLEEP.

Ahem.

Enjoy.

ps: On the whole, the session went better than I expected. No fireworks, no drama, separate sessions going forward, DD is cool with the separate sessions, Lynn is going to meet with wasband to PLAN how/when to tell DD the news, yada yada yada. All good.

oh, poor Wasband... Y'all ganged up on him and all, and either one of you alone could argue that he isn't even on the intelligence spectrum.

Do you think you short circuited his brain? He could not even say definitively that he made some bad choices. "I guess?" Way to own your shit, Wasband...

I have typed and re-typed about twenty responses.

Some of them nasty, some of them hilariously condescending.

Since I just responded to another thread about the importance of NOT name calling, I am absolutely positively at a loss for what to say here.

Nope - still at name calling, and none of them are PC. I will be back later when I feel less stabby for you.

Sonofagun.

I can't play along today- dealing with my own Wasband bullshit.

I'm just here to say Wasbands suck. They are so self-consumed and egotistical that even Jesus would hold my earrings for me...

He definitely isn't the brightest bunny in the forest.

Please someone tell me that is already on the Quote Thread.

I also agree - how did you not off him in his sleep? What a horrible father to not even think about the impact of not including his kids....wtf?

*facepalm*

Kajem posted 8/15/2013 13:43 PM

I'm sorry NIK, I'm laughing so hard at lieshurt's response.

You didn't kill him in his sleep, because you have empathy toward the less fortunate. You give your used items to those less fortunate, she is welcomed to him.

It is very clear from his responses that he gave this engagement a LOT of thought. Both of them are so excited , it's all they can think about how it will make those that love them
So happy for them . They have planned their responses to everyone who will ask the happy couple how the children will feel.

I get his egotistical self not saying anything (I am willing to bet that you were the parent that handled the tough stuff with the kids and he followed your lead) he was waiting for you to notice AND continue to do his dirty work for him. He wants to be the good buddy parent only he can't think about anything that isn't whirling in his own vortex of shit that's swirling around him.

What I don't get is her going along with it? You said she treats your DD nicely. How do you become engaged to someone and NOT inform their kids? Or not even discuss telling the kids-aren't they supposed to be a couple? Hell now I'm wondering - does his fiancť know she's engaged ?

Hugs, NIK you didn't kill him because you're a saint!

RESPOND to them Dear Wasband style

At first I thought you meant "respond as Wasband would respond" and all I could think was "there's no stupid-empty-look-with-drool-coming-out-of-his-mouth smiley"

Then I realized you meant Dear Abby style (right? )

Dear Wasband,

Please stop hogging oxygen. You don't deserve it until you learn to use the brain it's supposed to be fueling.

Yes - for clarity's sake, I meant "Dear Wasband" style, as if you were responding to him as I do when I post his "gems" here.

Dreamboat posted 8/15/2013 15:22 PM

Well, I would like to tack this on to every one of his comments

"because I am a selfish fuck who can't see past my dick"

Sometimes there is just no responding to stupid.

It is now.

ajsmom posted 8/15/2013 15:45 PM

So, did he actually admit that he's betrothed/engaged/married/whatever?

Cuz unless I'm blinded by his verbal brilliance, I'm not seeing that here.

You thought: As tempting as that was, maybe, it just might impact DS and DD in a negative way...? Hmmm, better think on it first.

He didn't deny it. He spoke words in response to statements regarding the engagement that indicated indirectly that the statements were factual in a non-binding and plausibly deniable manner.

So... yes?

ajsmom posted 8/15/2013 16:03 PM

And how damn long was he at the State Fair?

It's simple. You walk in, pay your admittance, head over to see the cows, wave at them, get your picture taken. Done.

You walk over to the corn-on-the-cob stand, order a cob, hand over your $, eat your corn as you're walking to the beer tent. Done.

You walk up to the beer tent, order a beer and perhaps some nachos, hand over your $$, drink your beer, then eat your nachos. Done.

You swagger over to the midway. Hand over your $$$ to get your wristband for unlimited rides. You hit the Tilt-O-Whirl, the Ferris Wheel, the Tea Cups ride, the World's Biggest Slide, the House of Fun, try to win a bunny shooting a basketball through a too small hoop and, Bam. Done.

On your way out, you watch the pigs race for Oreos, walk out the damn gate and get in your car.

Two - four hours. Tops.

Ahhh...got it.

nowiknow23 posted 8/15/2013 16:06 PM

Clearly you've never been to THE State Fair, ajsmom. 'Cuz the IOWA State Fair? That's a week-long thing for fair-going folk. I mean, come on! You didn't even mention the butter cow. Or the deep fried butter on a stick.

And you're skipping the talent show? The giant turkey legs? The combine display???
