It is half past midnight right now, and I am home alone.
I have decided not to use any names, but rather named placeholders. True, the situation is an open secret at school, but there is need to exacerbate things.
Wife, love of my life, mother of my daughter, my wife of 17 years now, is out with Coach. Coach is a high school coach, and also happens to be the guy she lost her virginity to. That happened almost thirty years ago - they ran into each other three years ago when Wife picked up our daughter from cheer practice. They reconnected.
When she left she was wearing her long coat, and only her coat, and a pair of handcuffs he slapped on her wrists. He then bundled her into his truck, and off they went. That happened almost seven hours ago. He did tell me not to wait up, they were going to meet some friends.
Daughter is out, too. She has a new boyfriend, again. He is a football player. Again. He is also in my class, which makes the whole situation very awkward. From an academic point of view she could do a lot better. I did not tell her that, of course.
They are at a party together. I gave him the whole "You are responsible for her" speech. He looked at me as if I was from some weird universe.
