Ménage à trios

Post by LizPennies » Thu Jan 06, 2011 4:15 pm

I always struggled with love. One bad relationship after another. Friends always gave me the same advice. Who would have thought they would be right?

“You need to love yourself before you can love another.”

Finally! I discovered love. TRUE LOVE! Can you believe it? The best relationship really is with yourself!

Until… It was a simple phrase. A friend’s slip of the tongue.

My heart broke when I found out they were cheating. I don’t share. Three’s a crowd.

I grabbed a knife.

Me, myself, and I… Oh yes. One of us would HAVE to go.

Disturbed... Delusional... These are the kind of words I strive for when receiving compliments. Thanks so much to all of you. :)

One minor quibble (unless it's intentional)

Normally would be spelled Ménage à trois

I wasn't sure how it was spelled, this is how google told me to spell it. *shrug* I will make a note of it for future though, thanks.

with stories like that you may be famous enough to actually need to use that word with a few fans behind a Borders or a Barnes & Nobel some day soon.

Damn, I forgot to post my prediction that this drabble was so awesome I expected it to make an episode of the drabblecast... (But that is what I thought, honest...)

Congratulations on hitting the big time. This the one you lost your DC virginity on, or have you had another one make the cut previously?

Oh, the needless tragedy! :cry:

Only two of those are objects to acted upon, there is no triangle.

I love/stab me = proper-ish.
I love/stab myself = proper.
I love/stab I = Incorrect!

See? Only 2 lovers. If only the grammatician had got there in time! :(

If only this hadn't occurred on your golf day, ASID.

Actually, the probable out come is that me and myself will be happily tossing the sheets and I will be a bloody mess on the floor.

lol. This is my first to make it to a full episode. Thanks for the compliments again guys. And as ROU put it, losing my "DC virginity," I'm glad for slapstick purposes that it was on THIS particular title. :D
