I feel that today's latest installment in My Life 101 is worthy of consideration. After all, it's not every day the Former Boyfriend I Mistakenly Thought Would Be Husband calls and asks for a big favor from The Love Of His Life That He Just Wouldn't Suck It Up For. I was tempted, Lord, to deny that louse any favor of me; I was tempted to show him the door and kick his trashy ass to the curb and send him ki-yi-ing down the street with his mangy tail between his faithless legs; I was tempted by the juicy fruit of the NO branch, followed by the succulent fruits of the HELL NO tree. Sin was beckoning with both hands.
Did I sink into the depths of temptation? No, I did not. I may have quizzed him mercilessly, I may have asked questions better not voiced, but I resisted the urge of NO and called upon my humane-ness and said I would pick him up from surgery if--and only if--he could not find any other alternative.
Yes, Lord, I realize I may yet get out of this obligation, which could render my application invalid. But please consider the fact that I resisted sin and temptation (a true difficulty under the circumstances) and humanely said okay before you reject the application.
Thank you for your time, and have a nice day!
