happy mother’s day!

mother's day

he captioned it “the four ladies in my life” on his instagram page.

yeah, out of the dozens i may just not know about.

the thought makes me chuckle. i love teasing him about his past, especially since it clearly makes him uncomfortable talking about it. the more unsettled he gets, the more interested i get.

curiouser and curiouser…

suddenly i’m alice in fucking wonderland, chasing the rabbit the best way i know how — with questions. lots and lots and lots of them! down the rabbit hole we go.

‘there’s nothing to tell!’ he’d protest.

‘oh come on, jeff, don’t be juvenile,’ i’d press on. ‘think of it as a scientific interrogation. it’s nothing personal. we’re both adults having a mature conversation.’

he probably thinks i got a couple of loose screws in my head but i reckon all women do. and besides, i love stories. and i know for a fact (yes, FACT. i have tangible proof so i’m not as demented as he likes to think i am.) that he has heaps of sensational ones so you can’t really blame me, can you?

look, i’m a writer. stories is my juice. juicy stories send me tripping.

in my defense, i never take the information he offers (with the metaphorical gun pointed to his head) against him. partly because i’m cool with his past unless they interfere with the present. mainly because the dude has held his ground and has stubbornly refused to squeal.

don’t ask, don’t tell.

as far as communication is concerned, he has unknowingly adopted a military approach to my journalistic inquisitions. i need to intensify my ammunition.

so, yeah, in honor of mother’s day, happy mother’s day to all the women in jeff’s life — past, present, and future. my own mother included. (who may or may not be cocking a shotgun as we speak.)

  1. my husband is toooooo honest for his own good… i know about all of them and even saw previous collections of photos and videos in private settings…. it was really weird feeling in the beginning when you just got married and all but now, pfffttt… the past are not so important indeed when you are busy working on the present for the future.. happy mother’s day to you there too…

    1. true. his past doesn’t exactly bother me. well, not anymore. lol. now i just find it entertaining.

      happy mother’s day to you too! how did yours go?

        1. i know exactly what you mean. guess that means father’s day will be pretty quiet for my husband too this year.

          like last year.

          and the year before that…
