Dear Mrs. Chavez (not your real name because you had remarried, but I didn't know
what your name was changed to),
I am really sorry. Not only for breaking your son's heart more than once, but for breaking it once to date his brother who I soon tired of but then didn't want anyone else to have. Sorry.
Dear Mrs. Pat's Mom,
I'm sorry. Really, how was I to know that the boy I carried a torch for for so long would eventually reciprocate my feelings when I no longer had any for him?
Dear Mrs. A.,
Thank you for the warning! I married a wonderful man who doesn't drag me by my hair through parking lots when he's had something to drink.
Dear Rob's Mom,
I'm sorry, but your son was a psycho. HE'S the one that thought there were wedding bells in our future--I NEVER gave him any reason to believe that.
oh yes... there's more
Dear Mrs. B.,
I'm sorry. That ripping you heard was your son's heart, but what he never told you was how he convinced his best friend to keep me occupied one evening so that he wouldn't run into me when he took that trampy little thing out on a date (what was her name, Wednesday? Sunday?). When I found out, I thought it was only fair game to become crazy interested in the friend whose hands he placed me in.
Dear C's Mom,
I don't have to apologize to you, do I? I did the right thing and let him go, even though it crushed me. I hope it was the best thing and that he followed his dreams.
Dear Mrs. Hickham,
Really, truly, I am sorry. I had NO idea that he felt that way and if you think I was happy about losing such a good friend in the process you're wrong.
Dear Gary's Mom,
For crying out loud, he was my BOSS! I was polite and respectful, HE was the one who thought we had a chance.
Dear Hubby's Mom,
It must've been frightening watching this cradle robber swoop in on your precious little boy, but I think it's turned out pretty good, don't you? You got five grandkids out of the deal and we're on civil terms with one another, so you nearly got a daughter as well. Oh, and by the way, remember the very first words out of your mouth when he told you we were getting married?
I guess you got your answer--YES, I was apparently able to have children.
