4. Thank you for the hug, nice Gemini!

I didn't think their narcissism had anything to do with their sun sign, but it was one thing they had in common.

I met the woman on the internet in a Bartcop chat room, if you know who Bartcop is. He sent a lot of people to DU. I had gone to visit her in a big city over ten years ago, and had a good time. She was a lot more subtle about buttering me up than the man was. She would never say anything bad about about me, just yell at my husband for no reason. The man would actually yell at me and criticize me. She said she liked men but I think that is not really true.

I had met the man in court in Houston when I was working as a court reporter and he was practicing law. We went out some when I was separated from the previous husband, and came to see me when I was quite ill in the hospital from putting up with a nagging abusive spouse. Late 1980s. He was a nice guy then. Now he is just a grumpy old cheap conniving bastard. He wanted a free legal assistant (I have a law degree too) but didn't treat me right. I'm sure he thought he was gonna step in after my husband had that heart attack or whatever.

We are retired. We live out in the country in a little town and they are in Houston, as far as I know, so I don't think they will bother us. I "ghosted" the man--that's what they call cutting someone off cold turkey--not replying to their texts or phone calls.

We don't have any nice restaurants around here. Because we are Democrats and non-religious, we don't have any friends. We have to make friends on Facebook through a closed group of secular humanists. I have to drive 75 to 110 miles just to go to get-togethers, but it's worth it in East Texas. There is no Democratic county organization around here because the Democrats have basically given up and none of the white people are Democrats. Everybody hates Obama that is white. I have to drive 20 miles just to go to Wallyworld and get groceries.

I thought I could have friends in life other than my husband, and these two proved that there are predators out there who have other ideas. I will have to make friends through this facebook group, because I go nuts if I don't have intelligent life to talk to about the things that matter to me. Everybody here in the country is extremely Christian and Republican, and they are all alike, so I don't even try to make friends in my little town. We put up a fence with an electric gate to keep the con artists and meth heads out. I can't hire anyone to pull my weeds. Nobody wants to work, even after they give you a sob story about how poor they are, on welfare or whatever, but they always want an advance for beer or cigarettes.

Maybe you are wondering why we live in the middle of nowhere? Because I inherited the family manse from my mother, and her mother had always lived in little towns. It's a cool old house on two acres, but I can't get my friends from Houston and Dallas to come see me on weekends. They're busy working or taking care of the elderly parents or the kids or both.

Hugs back atcha!
