It never ceases to amaze me how much I pay in taxes. 

I'm flat broke.  So much so that last April whatever (I can't bring myself to remember the day) I had to file an extension.

"Don't tell me what I owe" I said to my tax guy.  Let me live in denial.

Today, there was no beating denial.

I drove to his house to pick up the bad news.  I was met by his wife, Missy who is, frankly, the nicest woman on earth. 

"Hey girl, she said, hugging me.  Aren't you married yet?  You haven't changed a bit.  You look great."

I stopped receiving invitations to my tax guys Christmas party a while back.  He had a goofy gift exchange, I was quite the hit one Christmas Eve.

Maybe my tax guy flirted with me a little.  He said, "you look great Charmaine". He wasn't flirting, he was just being kind.

I was never invited back.

I know why.

I pay the price for single women that behave badly and have affairs with married men. If I ever meet that kind of woman...the type responsible for making married women fear me just because I'm single...I'll smack her in the head.

I totally hear you on paying the price. I was the Cub Scout Pack pariah for years until the moms all realized I didn't want to sleep with their husbands...

She doesn't sound so nice if you aren't getting invited over anymore.

I'd invite you over but I'm afraid your nipples would freeze off. I can't be responsible for that... I just can't. ;)

Hi Charmaine,
Thank you for the great comment and now for the laugh, you have a very funny blog. Take care out there (in the dating world)!

I'm with you on this one!
Get so sick of being seen as a threat because of other women's insecurity with their men.

That is so the truth Charmaine!!!

While I was single, my so called Best Friend decided I was after her newly acquired boyfriend, who also happened to be my best guy FRIEND!!
It so pissed me off and hurt me...

How is it that married women are so afraid that their single friends are after their husbands??? Not all of us are a bit like that!!!!
