Mr. X and I talked about cheating today. In fact, he accused me of cheating. And, he told me that he had cheated himself.
I have to admit, that I have cheated.
What kind of cheater am I?
I am a Restaurant Cheater, which is probably not as serious as a Netflix Cheater, but not by much. As a Restaurant Cheater, I go to restaurants that Mr. X wanted to try, but … without him. I have done this several times. I can’t help myself. I make dates to have lunch with girlfriends who suggest new restaurants and who am I to say no? How can I turn them down with the statement that Mr. X has laid claim to that restaurant?
Today, it has all come to a head. I called him after lunch and he told me that he had visited a restaurant that I had been wanting to try. He has cheated on me. And, he told me that he enjoyed cheating on me. He wanted me to know how it felt. He was proud of himself.
Now, I know how it feels. But, I am unrepentant. I will continue to cheat.
