The Tricky Currents Of A Stormy Relationship

| Romantic | January 6, 2016

(My boyfriend and I are attending a holiday lunch for his bell ringing group, which he recently rejoined after a couple of years. The last time he was part of it was when he was with his now ex-wife. Part of the lunch includes an annual meeting, so the ring master gets everyone’s attention and makes announcements.)

Ring Master: “Well, a lot of you may not know our newest addition, [My Name], who is not a ringer yet. She’s [Boyfriend]’s current girlfriend…”

(I get an incredulous look on my face, and the room bursts into laughter.)

Me: “Current? Really?”

Ring Master: *trying to recover* “Well, he was with someone else last time…”

Other Ringer: “It’s okay, [My Name]. You’re the best one.”

Boyfriend: “…For now.”

(I proceeded to pretend to thwack him on the back of the head.)
