He stated he was working late from work, needed to go house and alter, yadda yadda yadda, excuses, excuses. But he promised me he was coming.
So, I made a decision to maintain boozin’ it up. An hour later, I got a textual content from him. He wanted the handle.
Two hours later, I texted him to see if he had gotten misplaced.
Three hours later, I used to be sick of making excuses for him. Everyone stored asking about my new man, however his lacking in motion act was getting previous.
Three and a half hours later, he texted me to say that he was lastly leaving his place. Ugh! I instructed him to overlook it and to not trouble coming as a result of whereas the occasion was nearly over—we positively had been! I dumped him by way of textual content as a result of the bastard didn’t deserve higher.
Four hours later, all of the visitors had been lastly gone. There was lots to scrub up, however I used to be the actual mess. It was my occasion and I used to be going to cry if I needed to! Nothing my greatest pal stated might make me really feel higher. So, I cuddled up with a brand new sweetie—the left over cake. Turns out, buttercream frosting is a detailed second to intercourse.
