Just like Pagliacci did

Actually it went really well and we had plans for a movie Friday night. Which made it all the more disheartening this morning when I received the email saying he can't see me any more because his 26-year old son is not ready to see dad date yet and he can't lie about where he's going. (Can't lie? What kind of sick sh*t is that?) Not just we have to cool it, which we had discussed and I was in total agreement with should it become necessary. It's not easy seeing your parent with a new partner and I am nothing if not sympathetic to other people's feelings, but he seems to think we have to end it. Not that there was much to end. About a week's worth of emails and phone calls and one actual date. I suppose he may reconsider but the question now is, do I want him to?

Oy vey! I should have joined the convent when I had the chance. No... wait... I'm not Catholic...

Ricardipus - Dude! Fire up the chainsaw, baby! Mama's got some work for y'all! And the invasion is on...

The guy has a 26 years old son and still can't live is life according to is own will? Possible scenarios:
a) You're joking, no loss for you.
b) He's pathetic, no loss for you.
c) He's using the kid story as an excuse because he's a jerk and can't find the nerve to tell you he is not into you, no loss for you.

Ok, total damage in the whole affair:
some time wasted with e-mails, phone calls and a date. Living in a big city that would amount to a bad day in traffic.

WTF, mate?

This would have been an acceptable reason/excuse if his son was, well, a child, a teenager even. Perhaps even if he's a bit developmentally delayed. But if you're an average 26-year-old, you should be able to deal with your parents having parts of their lives that do not revolve around you. And I say this as someone who will be turning 26 next Friday, so I know from which I speak.

Talk about having your dad wrapped around your little finger. Dear Lord. Well, at least you didn't have too much time invested in this clown yet.

Got to say the cliches;

The guy's a loser!
Be glad that you got away from him!
You deserve better!

It's all true girl.

(and any son who doesn't want to see his Dad happy and dating a beautiful woman like you, must be Gay.(Hell, just a sour old queer)

Thank you, one and all. And you're all right, of course.

(Mr. Fab you'll love the fact that I first typed that as "... right, off course." Sigmund and I are soul-mates, apparently.)

TC - Of course. Otherwise, he'd act like an adult.

Ricardipus and Misty - What can I say? You guys! I have Tide and Hefty Bags. Let the mayhem begin. I'll chip in on the gas.

Music to my ears...

I shall have a Screech and Coke ready upon your arrival.

It's important to use the proper lubrication with a chain saw...

Oh, shut up, Fab! You know you grease the lemurs.

I hate when lying comes up so early in a relationship. :)

Yeah, what's up with the 26 year old Gosling? Jeez.

26?! His son is acting like he's 12.

Just for the record? I think he's using his son as an excuse. I think he needs to grow a set before he dates again.
