"Well think a while and you will see...."[hr]Disclaimer:<br>I didn't write this. I'm fine.<br>This was an email sent to me for entertainment purposes.<br>The original title was "If you or someone close has ever been divorced..."<br>I thought the author did a good job.<br>This starts serious, then begins to twist.<br>Don't let the first 2 paragraphs scare you away. ;)<br>[hr]<br>Dear  Terri: <br>I  know the counselor said we shouldn't contact each other during our "cooling off"  period, but I couldn't wait anymore. The day you left, I swore I'd never talk to  you again. But that was just the wounded little boy in me talking. <br>Still,  I never wanted to be the first one to make contact. In my fantasies, it was  always you who would come crawling back to me. I guess my pride needed that. But  now I see that my pride's cost me a lot of things. I'm tired of pretending I don't  miss you. I don't care about looking bad anymore. I don't care who makes the  first move as long as one of us does. Maybe it's time we let our hearts speak as  loudly as our hurt. And this is what my heart says... "There's no one like you,  Terri." <br> I look for you in the eyes and  breasts of every woman I see, but they're not you. They're not even close. Two  weeks ago, I met this girl at the Rainbow Room and brought her home with me. I  don't say this to hurt you, but just to illustrate the depth of my desperation.  She was young, Terri, maybe 19, with one of those perfect bodies that only youth  and maybe a childhood spent ice skating can give you. I mean, just a perfect  body. <br>Tits you wouldn't believe and an ass like a tortoise shell. Every man's dream, right? <br>But  as I sat on the couch being blown by this coed, I thought, look at the stuff we've made important in our lives. It's all so surface. What does a perfect body  mean? Does it make her better in bed? Well, in this case, yes. But you see what  I'm getting at. Does it make her a better person? <br>Does she have a better heart  than my moderately attractive Terri? I doubt it. And I'd never really thought of  that before. I don't know, maybe I'm just growing up a little. <br>Later,  after I'd tossed her about a quart of throat yogurt, I found myself thinking, "Why do I feel so drained and empty?" It wasn't just her flawless technique or  her slutty, shameless hunger, but something else. Some niggling feeling of loss.  Why did it feel so incomplete? And then it hit me. It didn't feel the same  because you weren't there, Terri, to watch. Do you know what I mean? Nothing  feels the same without you, baby. <br>Jesus, Terri, I'm just going crazy without  you. <br>And  everything I do just reminds me of you. Do you remember Carol, that single mom  we met at Mt.Sinai Baptist Church? Well, she drops by last week with  a pan of lasagna. She said she figured I wasn't eating right without a woman  around. I didn't know what she meant till later, but that's not the real story.  <br>Anyway, we have a few glasses of wine and the next thing you know we're fucking  in our old bedroom. And this broad's a total monster in the sack. She's giving  me everything, you know like a real woman does when she's not hung up about God  and her career and whether the kids can hear us. And all of a sudden she spots  that tilting mirror on your grandmother's old vanity. So she puts it on the  floor and we straddle  it, right, so we can watch ourselves. And it's totally hot, but it makes me sad  too. 'Cause I can't help thinking, "Why didn't Terri ever put the mirror on the  floor? We've had this old vanity for what, 14 years, and we never used it as a  sex aid." (Some of this I thought about later.) You know what I mean? What  happened to our spontaneity?  You get so caught up in the routine of a  marriage and you just lose sight of each other. And then you lose yourself.  That's the saddest part of all for me.  <br>But I  keep thinking we can get it back. I know we can, because I only want this stuff  with you. Saturday, your sister drops by with my copy of the restraining order.  I mean,Shannon's just a kid and all, but she's got a pretty good head  on her shoulders. She's been a real friend to me during this painful time. She's  given me lots of good counsel about you and about women in general. (She's  pulling for us to get back together, Terri. She really  is.) <br>So we're drinking  in the hot tub and talking about happier times. Here's this hot girl with the  same DNA as you (although, let's face it, she got an extra helping of the sexy  gene) and all I can do is think of how much she looks like you when you were 18.  And that just about makes me cry.  <br>And  then it turns out Shannon's really into the whole anal thing and that gets me to  thinking about how many times I pressured you about trying it and how that  probably fueled some of the bitterness between us. But do you see how even then,  when I'm thrusting inside the steaming hot Dutch oven of your sister's cinnamon  ring, all I can do is think of you? It's true, baby. In your heart you know it. <br>Don't  you think we could start over? Just wipe out all the grievances and start fresh?  I think we can. I keep thinking that I think if you'd just try it, I wouldn't  have to pressure you so much. Because who needs all that bitterness, Terri? It  just tears us apart. And I can't be apart from you. <br> <br>Because  I love you. <br><br>Dick<br>

[/quote]<br><br>LOL! ;D<br>Thanks!, but I didn't write it. It truly was an email a friend sent me. I guess I better go back and put a disclaimer in the beginning. <br>I bet several people just read the first 2 paragraphs and then left thinking it was serious. :-/<br>The "vibe" of this reminds me of "BHAFA".
