As I mentioned in my initial SCF post and in a little more detail in my subsequent comments and Twitter revenge plotting with Michael, Alyssa, and Jewels, I have recently learned of some information regarding my long-standing boy toy/fall back guy, Fireman, that has left me a little out of sorts to say the least.I shouldn't really be surprised, yet I was.
Long story short, he told me he was married. And he had been since last summer.
Well, you know I can't just leave it at that. I knew that there was more to the story than the version I got so I did what any intrepid blogger would do, I researched the shit out of him (and his wife since it took my a minute flat to find out her info) on the interwebz. And within 15 minutes, thanks to a Google search and his wife's very public Facebook page, I had their wedding announcement and entire dating history displayed before me.
Here is what I now know to be fact:
He is indeed married. To his long-time girlfriend. She is really quite cute. Who he dated all through college. They had a big white wedding exactly one week after one of the nights we were together last summer. They had a lovely vacation in the Bahamas. He texted me immediately upon his return from his honeymoon to see me.
Oh yeah, and her current Facebook picture is an ultrasound picture of their BABY!
Yep. There's the kicker....she's pregnant right now. Yet another detail he failed to disclose, even when I specifically asked him about it in our prior text convo, it was just a guess at that point, but he had his chance to come clean and chose again to lie.
What do I do with that??
I was a little beside myself when I started my Twitter expose' on the situation. Luckily my girls had my back and gave some excellent feedback on how to properly punish him for his idiocy and doggery (I made that word up but you get what I mean).
A few ideas that came up:
I could just go dark on him. Cut it off completely without explanation.
I could tell him to fuck off and throw every single detail that I know at him and instruct him to shove it all up his ass just for the satisfaction of letting him know that I now know everything.
Or..... I could ruin his life. One e-mail or phone call to his lovely wife would pretty much put an end to this entire game. I think a billboard was even suggested.
But I can't do that. I don't want to be the one to hurt his wife and their unborn child. I don't have the heart for that.
But he doesn't have to know that I wouldn't really do that right?? I could play it like that was what I was going to do it. Make him sweat it out for a while. But you never know how crazy a desperate person would get and I don't feel like having a hit put out on me to keep me quiet. Hey, you never know....
As I am typing this post, he is texting me like all is well and trying to make plans to see me. He really has no idea of what I know or how exactly I found it all out. He thinks he's still got his bases covered.
Boy will he be surprised.....
Any good revenge ideas?? Any similar experiences (God, I hope not!)? Ever played this game on someone and got away with it (Again, I hope not!)? Help me out here, I'm out of my league on this one!
*Now, as a disclaimer, I understand that his character was shown to be questionable at various points during our...whatever it was. But I thought, all things being equal, we had some solid ground rules that we were playing by and that honesty in that realm was expected. It wasn't that hard, and he made most of them! Silly me, looks like I was the only one with the courtesy to follow them.*
