FOWC with Fandango — Factor

Here’s a twist on the X Factor, or should I say, EX?

Before my divorce, an acquaintance from school who had returned to this country with her new husband notified me of a job going in her office.
Thus we worked for the same company but not in the same department.
I felt sorry for her husband and as she was meeting up with other friends, invited him over for a meal one evening.
We had a very pleasant visit and he left a happy man.

On Monday morning, I was taken to task in front of everyone in the office for entertaining her husband without her. He had apparently believed it would be a guys night as his wife and I were out together, as we did several times a week. This was obviously news to me.
The omitting factor in her rantings was that I was supposed to be her alibi for her dalliances with no less than three other guys.
Cue Ex husband and Ex friend.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
