I scrolled through a couple of the stories and came across this great quote from Jessica Louise Cutler, a former anonymous blogger who called herself The Washingtonienne. In her blog, which has since been deleted, she discussed her sex life in great detail...including how she accepted money and gifts from Bush Administration officials in exchange for some boom boom. In short she was eventually outed and fired, of which she had to say:
"Public embarrassment is really very liberating. You really stop caring about what people think, which is something only the elderly seem to able to accomplish with great aplomb. So I am way ahead of everybody. And those of you behind me can kiss my ass."What a great quote! And so true.
Back to the original story of Crazy Uncle Pete, I was talking to M. about the Charles Reyes vs. Janet King lawsuit and how stupid it is of guys to expect boom boom in exchange for small shiny objects.
Charles is suing Janet to force her to return some gifts he gave her. According to Janet's lawyer, “It is a classic disappointed suitor profile."
You're probably saying to yourself, "Oh, no he didn't!" But sadly, oh, yes he did!
Look, we've all been jilted by someone of the opposite sex. I remember in the 8th grade I asked Marie Grey (I think that was her name) if she'd "go out" with me. She said she'd get back to me, took the issue to the girlfriend chatterbox committee, and ultimately denied my request. Then there was Melissa Kirkwood, who told me it was very sweet to ask her to Homecoming, but, NO, she had to wash her hair that night. Then of course Jennifer Higgins repeatedly told me NO, even after I bought her drinks after work for nearly two years.
Look, it sucked. I was embarrassed. I wished I had never made myself vulnerable the way I did.
But I didn't sue any of them in small claims court!
You see, one of the rules of being a guy is that when you give a girl a gift, she gets to keep it. No exceptions. Deal with it.
Now drop the case or turn over your Man Card.
Not that I would ever, ever, accuse the local newspapers of being gossip rags, but this line from today's Saipan Tribune made me laugh, "Also seen talking with King after the hearing were Rep. Rosemond Santos and Beautify CNMI's Angelo Villagomez."
I was seen talking with her? What of it?
