Finally An Answer to that Burning Question

When I talk about the Captain, people often ask me, "Is Ex dating?"

Why? Why do they ask? And why do they think I know the answer? And why do they think I care?

Usually I say, "I don't know - but I hope so. I hope he can find someone who can tolerate his curmudgeony ass find someone to enjoy life with him. "

Last Saturday Son had a college rugby game nearby. Of course I went - so did Ex and his Dad and Uncle. Dad and Uncle still like me, still talk to me. There was some girl? woman? Walking around with them. Eventually I got an up-close look and realized she was older than I thought. She was dressed nicely. Too nicely for Rugby.

Then it dawned on me.

That's his DATE! And they later went to dinner (Son told me - no I didn't ask!!)

So all you curious people who want to know?? YES HE IS DATING! Girlfriend? I don't know.

But her car was not in the driveway when I got home from the piano bar at midnight.

Just sayin'

I think you will be so happy when you can change your blog title!

Next time they ask if Ex is dating, say "why would I want to even know? It's none of my business really."

And when you change the blog title, you can make it "No Longer Next Door 2 My Ex"

People are inherently nosy and expect that you, of all people, would have the scoop. And that if you did indeed have the scoop - would be willing to dish.

i would have a really hard time holding my tongue to keep from saying something really sarcastic if asked that question. it's a good thing we don't have those thought bubbles that comics have, huh? hahaha

and yeah....there will be a major makeover going on over here once the 'big move' is made....i'm expecting a Jimmy Buffett-esque picture up there!!! ;-D

My divorce was final last summer and like you I get that question all the time. "Is she dating?"

My standard answer is: "I don't know and I don't care. None of my business."

If you ever figure out why people ask, let me know. Been wondering that same thing myself.
