When the other half goes away

Postby Toby » 30 Nov 2018, 17:02

My wife has taken herself and my boy to the Cotswolds to see a friend for the weekend.

I’m eating crisps, playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and drinking beer. Seeing a mate for more booze tonight and then off to another friend tomorrow for more booze and boardgames all night.

What do you do when your significant other is away?

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I used to enjoy it for about 15 minutes and then started missing all the noise and disruption.

I watched lots more sports and listened to music a lot louder.

Substitute MST3K for sports and that's pretty much my week so far.

I wish they'd hurry up and come home.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

It's usually me that's off on travels. But, basically, being home alone involves increased cat wrangling, trashy TV programmes ( preferably involving debt collectors, botched plastic surgery or American drag queens ), and an overindulgence in 80s pop.

The best part is seeing goldwax's name in the credits.

Rock music on the TV! Pull out some DVDs we haven't seen in a while! Maybe rewatch Taxi Driver and random South Park episodes. Binge a show she doesn't like. And Yoshinoya Beef Bowl for dinner every night.

Load up on baked and catered treats, binge watch Britcoms and Antiques Road Trip, tell the cats that they like me best. I do leave him some treats. Alone time can be fun.
