Update


Mr. Frank and I got together one more time.

I let him carry the conversation.

Right off the bat: there will be no Mr. WWW or Mrs. Frank.

All the alarm bells went off, and thank heaven I am old enough and have learned enough to hang garlic around my neck and cross my fingers and mutter my internal witchly incantations.

To recite the whys would be extraordinarily boring.

You want to hear?

The women in his life just wanted his money.

Even the love (lust?) of his life, a much younger flight attendant, wanted him to buy her stuff. (What stuff, pray tell? Stuff that doesn't last like flowers and woman-stuff)

He's very bored, plays the stock market every day, tries to fill his nights with something, anything. Wouldn't mind tagging along for something, anything, as long as we shared costs. He's learned his lesson, you see. Be still my trembling heart.

Life was more interesting when there was sex involved but now there's precious little life left in Mr. Little Frank. Which pithily tells us everything we wanted didn't want to know about Lover Frank.

I nearly fell asleep.

He truly harshes my mellow.

  1. I suspected that would be the outcome. As you say, a good thing you're now worldly-wise enough to fend him off.

    1. Gawd it's fun tho. I have enormous compassion for him, it's like his heart has been broken so many times and he hasn't a clue his obsession is money.

  3. I was right---OMG, but you dodged a bullet, WWW.
    I've never heard the phrase, "harshes my mellow," but it is wonderful.

    1. It is E, isn't it. I found that there was no joy or mellow in him, just a kind of dissatisfaction like a malaise he can't shake off.

    1. Yes Gemma, once you can't be friends it's pretty sad. I feel kindly towards him but he is the author of his own misfortune.

    1. makes me feel good for you and that desire is still a possibility in life at our time of life

    2. I don't think desire ever leaves us Gemma, but I think it moves into the realm of to understand and be understood. I can't help visualizing him now with a U-haul filled with money being tugged along behind his car, bolted and armed.

      We all fixate on something.

  9. Yep doesn't sound too exciting. Someone who's bored is a real no-no.
