I love yellow. He hated it — he wanted orange walls instead.

I love flowers. He hated them — why bother when they’re just going to die?

I love fine china. He hated it — plastic didn’t break when he dropped it.

I love Paris. He hated it — and the “frogs” who called the lily pond home.

I love diamonds. He hated them — they’re forever, but they’re not free.

I love a ‘lived in’ house — He hated it — ‘messy’ made him uncomfortable.

And now I’m sitting here in my golden-yellow dining room — incredible lilacs on the table set with my favorite Lenox pattern — enjoying the Coq Au Vin I learned to make at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. And I sparkle like the diamonds on the ring finger of my right hand as I celebrate his absence.

I think my sister, the Black Widow spider — queen of her messy, haphazard  domain —  has it right. Once her mate has done his manly duty — once the tingles have run up and down all eight of her legs and the thrill is gone — so is he.

She just devours him.

No fighting. No lawyers. No spousal support.

And her web can be however the hell she wants it to be.

About PD Williams

Writer - primarily humorous women's fiction. My secret agenda is to help men become in actuality the visions they think they already are. I point out their many flaws in the kindest, gentlest, most supportive way I know -- gotta protect those fragile male egos -- so we can stop wasting our energy trying to change them. After all, as women, we have more important things to do.

    LOL. Great post! It has always amused me that even spider men are so stupid they will die to get laid!
