Well in UK slang, a man's penis is known as the "Pork Sword" or the "Beef Bayonet".

Don't know how that works with vegetarians.

Why don't you just talk to him?? *smh*

Do you suppose I haven't tried?  :wacko:

I'm sorry, but when a person so close to me is in such denial (and it is *that* important to me), I no longer sneak and tiptoe around them.

I say it straight out the way I perceive it. Right to their face.

Yes, I have done it to close relatives, and I've gotten answers that way.

 

But then you already know the answer...

And this gets me nowhere. I am not expecting a confession. I never get more than just clues. Understandably I'd love to nail it.

I don't "know" the answer. That is what eats you up. And yes, it is important to know if you have been deceived.

You have been deceived. 

 

I suggest you follow Metall's advice and move on in your head if not in person.  There are other relationships, choices, and opportunities. It is that simple. 

 

You're welcome.

Done it, thanks. Doesn't stop you wanting the proof that informs your future attitude and behaviour towards said person who is the Father of my child.

It is not simple (I am really trying very hard not to add stupid. Damn. Failed.)

@john g. I almost stopped watching when Bairstow was out. Bl00dy relieved I stuck with it. My youngest son has now watched two England matches on TV: the world cup final and this test. He is getting a really inaccurate impression of 1) how much games change and 2) how good England are at cricket. Absolutely brilliant game though.

I had to work this afternoon. I sneaked a couple of views on my mobile. At the point Butler went I was a bit jittery but when I looked again and it was 261 - 7 I thought that it was about over. At 286 - 9 that was it, no point in following anymore - until I later saw they had won. How did they do that? I know Ben Stokes... twice he's got them out of the mire. Australia will be willing Smith is back for the next test.

I also hope Smith will be back. I appreciate top professional sportsmen in their teams and may the better team win. And respect at the end of the game.

I world look at this as similar to a grieving process when a body is lost at sea. There will be no burial. Life will move on but there will be the lingering doubt that a loved one is cast adrift with only a ball with a face drawn on it for company.

Just reading an article in the local paper about the state of people's cars. Not even animals live in crap like this.  Disgusting, slovenly behaviour.

Vent/flummox...as I am our family's main peacekeeper, I can't believe the outcome of encouraging husband and kid to make amends with each other after a week of their bickering.  I'm now seemingly the demon....full on teenage girl and middle age man mong out at me upon their return from dinner together!

 

WT*?

 

I'd love to disappear somewhere right now....

The Law of Good Intentions raises its ugly head again.  Bonding has funny manifestations. 
Sorry, @emkay. :(
