The hubster and I are going to spend a week in my Sweet Home Alabama soon which means it’s time for me to select a vacation read. Right now I think the book I’ll be packing up in my Isaac Mizrahi bag is “What Was I Thinking?: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories.” This book is a collection of first-person essays about that moment in a relationship when you realize that no matter how much you like your partner, things simply cannont and will not work out.
I’m thinking this book will probably have me reaching for a pen to jot down some bad boyfriend stories of my own, and Lord knows I have plenty of them.
There’s the one guy I stopped talking to because he pronounced words like street and straight as “skreet” and “skraight.”
Then there was the guy who cheated on me with my best friend. (My best friend was a guy.)
Oh, and I can’t forget the one who thought an idea of a good date was me helping him take inventory of his wardrobe. (At least he always looked nice.)
I could go on and on, but I actually remained friends with most of my ex-dudes and some might even be nice enough to read this blog. So I’ll stop.
It’s your turn. What are some of your bad boyfriend or girlfriend stories?
Also, tell me about some of your favorite vacation reads.
