The Boy Pirate King 2

January 21, 2014

X2 was beautiful and smart, working as a bank teller but with secret dreams of big money jobs. We often sat smoking together onthe ol dysu break and talked bout the guys she was dating. I was smitten with her, I was married though. But I wanted to help her somehow, do something for this beautiful girl, so full of possibilities and stuck in South Dakota.

I even tried to fix her up with another coworker/friend closer to her age.

He screwed her, never called her and told everyone else at work how easy she was. (Ahh guy’s…ya gotta love us)

She was heartbroken and of course I felt like an ass.

Meanwhile X1 (with whom my relationship was already souring) had moved with the kids temporarily back to So Cal.

X2 was very…mmm…intent of making me hers. I fer my part had this smart, good looking, sexy 21 year old ( I was nearing 40) hot for me…

So yes, I got divorced, eventually hooked up with X2, took custody of my own kids from the previous marriage, got married to X2

and had another kid.

But the point is during these years X2 went from being a bank teller to being a phone banker to being an accountant for the biggest bank in the country.

And yea I know she may have done it without me. And yea I know she did all the work bla, bla, bla,

Anyway shortly after divorce from X2 (we’ll get to that in a minute) a long comes Lil Mouse, she’s 24, I’m closin in on 50 now.

Lil Mouse is a beautiful, smart, funny sexy young girl with big dream but some ptsd based anxiety, she’s an English major working as a shop girl with secret dreams of being a Librarian but doesn’t have the belief in her self to necessarily reach fer those books.

A year of happy memories.

Five years later I was helping her move to a new city to start her new job, having completed her Masters in Library Science, as a Head Catalog Librarian at a local University.

And yea I know she may have done it without me. And yea I know she did all the work bla, bla, bla,

But I tell ya I had a lot to do with both of these beautiful young women’s growth.  The comforting through tears and fits of “can’t do it’s”, the support and cheer leading, the “you can do it’s”, reminding them both of there bountiful talents and desire.

Anyway as I thought through this I also realized that this was probably the real death knell of both of these relationships.

Both X2 & Lil Mouse probably got to the point where they jes didn’t need me anymore, they had grown beyond me. Where as I…like most men,,had stayed jes the same.


Wait what? What does this have to do with  the “Boy Pirate King” ?  Well hold on I’m gettin to that…

  1. There really is something to this….it’s important to grow as the person you’re in relationship with grows, not necessarily in the same way, but to continue to have ideas to share. Can’t imagine that you would run out of ideas, though!
