Cupcakes And Donuts (A Conversation)

So SM and I are watching the news the other day and it appears that Ashley Madison has been hacked.

"What's that?  A bakery?"  In my mind it sounded like one of those frilly girly places that made fancy cupcakes and donuts.

Or maybe sold women's purses.  (This is how my simple brain works.)  I couldn't figure out what the fuss was over a business I'd never even heard of and said as much to SM.

"It's a website for married people who want to cheat.  Kinda like a dating service."  SM informed me.

To say my eyebrows were in my hairline is an understatement.

"Why would married people need to date?"  I asked, cupcakes exploding in my head.

"It's a hook up place."

"Have you heard of it before?"  I asked.

"Sure."  He says nonchalantly.

"Am I ignorant or innocent?"

"Tami, you have no idea how much stuff like that is on the Internet."

"Hm.  Well, I've said it before and I'll say it again...If you wanna cheat, go for it but could you do me a favor?  Find one that doesn't mind housework and has a job so you can bring her home and she can contribute around here.  If you're getting something out of it I might as well too."

SM laughs.  

We've been together long enough that the jealousy we had in our younger days is long gone.  

At my age, I'd be grateful for another set of hands around here so the idea of a second wife is OK by me.

Cupcakes and donuts, indeed!!!


  1. I bet there are going to be more than a few people walking on eggshells for quite some time....

  2. So who's the scum bag who runs this site? I think his (okay, it might be a "her") identity should be plastered all over the Internet along with the story of the hacking. But wait, he/she probably wouldn't think there was anything wrong with the premise of his/her business. Aren't there any morals involved?

    I can't say I'd care much for my husband cheating, but I sure could put a "second wife" to good use.

  3. I just pulled up this blog post and Paul asked me if I knew what it was, and I was like "What WHAT was?". He knew it and told me before I even got to read your post. Amazing. And i agree....if he's gonna cheat, at least do it with some Polish chick who can come by and make me some perogi and golabki.

  4. We live in one crazy world Tami !! Nice to catch up with you

  5. Who knew? But it doesn't surprise me. Yeah, I know all about wishing for that extra set of hands thing.

  6. My husband says regularly: "If you have any boyfriends, I wish you would tell them to come over this weekend and help around the house. I have a lot of work to do."

  7. Back when we lived in Florida, the personal ads in the weekend newspaper always included some from people looking for a "dominatrix." Cherie used to joke that she should answer one of the ads and when the guy showed up she would command him to mop the floors, clean the windows, etc.
