A software company just went bust. Happens a lot. That a woman happened to be running this company is not significant. Lots of men have lost lots of other people’s money too. What is significant is that she starts off her explanation of how she pissed away all her investor’s money by talking about her sex life.
Something wasn’t right, and I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what it was. On the surface, it seemed like I had the best life. A popular blog with millions of readers. The perfect relationship with Brian, the most adoring fiance in the universe.
“Adoring Fiance” is girl code for “The man I am about to cheat on and then dump.” If a woman says her fiancee adores her, she is cruising for a dicking. If she is not cruising for a dicking, she tells us she adores her fiancee, not that he adores her.
Then, one day, a few weeks ago, an event happened (I’ll save the details of that for some other time.) Suddenly a torrent of emotions poured in. I was overwhelmed. I stayed home from work one day–my best friend Erica sent me some poetry, and I just cried. I wept. It felt like my soul was pouring out of me, one tear at a time.
I reeled from the onslaught of emotions for days, and soon thereafter, I broke off my relationship with Brian.
And, by the way, forgot about running the company she was supposed to be running, with the result that the paychecks bounced and the investors lost all their money, but that, not being very important to her does not get much mention, even though the people she is addressing, the investors, are likely to be more interested in that part.
Here is what I guess happened, interpolating between “My adoring fiancee” “onslaught of emotions”, and “payroll”.
“My adoring fiancee”
She fucked some bad boy, Mr Very Wrong. After Mr Very Wrong was done, he kicked her out of his room and soon thereafter called the next girl on his booty call list.
“onslaught of emotions”
She dumped her fiancee and forgot about her business so as to be fully available in case the next booty call came. And the next booty call did not come.
