This weekend I was supposed to see my cousin (who also happens to be one of my bestest friends). I love him to death, we’re that close. Anyway, so he was supposed to come and spend the night at my house, meet his brother, and hell, spend time with me because we’re cool like that. Well, it never happened. It’s not his fault and I totally understand but I was still upset about it. Now whose fault was it that he didn’t come? His fathers. My uncle was supposed to come with him but due to his psycho mistress (because hell, that’s what she is) they didn’t come at all. Well from that stemmed two letters. One from the mistress to my cousin’s wife and the other from my cousin to my uncle’s mistress. I don’t want to post its entirety here because hey, it’s family stuff, but here’s a few excerpts from it. First, the letter from the mistress:
I know you all think of me as the worst thing that has
happened to your family, but I will tell you one thing, if it was not for me
this man would be dead or in jail, and I don’t say that to make me look
good, i say it because it’s true…
I am not the best person in the world for being with a married man, but I am
the best thing that has ever happened to this man.
I think he does it [lying] because he does not want to hurt anybody, he loves his
kids and his grandchildren…especially [insert my nephew’s name here].
I don’t want my son to lose a second father as he did his first.
I am not a bad person, nor do I wish to hurt anybody, I can’t
hurt someone that I truly love or anyone he loves
Well, before I continue, let me just say… WTF? First of all, she had no right to send this to my cousin’s wife. Better yet, she should have sent it to my cousin himself, not go through someone else. It’s completely annoying and causes more drama than it should. Second of all, she thinks way too highly of herself. Ok continuing on, here’s my cousin’s response (excerpts of course):
Wow [mistress], you really think highly of yourself, which is a good trait, but how about you let others judge your worthiness, instead of judging yourself, because as we all know, everybody thinks of themselves as the greatest thing since sliced bread, but that does not make it so.
I do not need you telling me how much my father loves me, for HE tells me, and that is the only person I need telling me, not his mistress.
I call you his mistress, not to be hurtful, but because that is what you are, his mistress.
If you had self respect, you would have made him leave his wife, and not be “the other woman” or “la otra”. But by you being my father’s mistress, you have caused problems, and with no remorse from either of you, really shows a lot about both your characters.
You may think that the small piece of family you have met considers you family, but trust me, as I do know, that is not the case. It is hurtful being laughed at when one is not listening. You are still considered “la otra” and though they are friendly to your face, it’s an ongoing joke after you have left.
You also say that if not for you, my father would be dead or in jail. You really must not know too much about my father, so let me help you out. If it wasn’t for my mom, he would have been dead or in jail many decades ago.
Do not think that the last six years gives you any right to talk down to me, or allows you a pedestal to sit on. If you think that you are the reason he is still here, please, take the time to really learn about a man you think you know about.
If anything, you should be asking for forgiveness for all the betrayal, family problems, and lies you two have engaged in, but instead, you reach out to inform me that I need to see where you are coming from, and pray my dad does not get sick and die which would leave your son fatherless again. I don’t mean to be blunt, but the honest truth is, my father is not your son’s father, he is just a father figure. If my father becomes ill, it is my kids, my brothers, and my mom I will worry about, and no one else.
This past weekend, I was trying to spend time with my father, my son, and a brother I was about to meet. The two of you ruined that, and according to him, you were stalking him and threatening to call the police if he spent time with me.
I am not a cruel person, nor am I a foolish one. I am also not a child anymore, and I am stronger then you think. Please do not bring up my sons name, for you do not have that right. My dad and I will fix our relationship; we always do, because I love him….
Trust me, the letter was really long and it really hit their targets in all aspects. My cousin has every right to answer this way to a woman who is trying to force her way into our family. Apparently we’re that cool that people want to be us. We’re a big deal.
I’m just so glad that a lot of stuff that had to be said was said. I can’t wait to see what the mistress’ response is going to be.
Random quote of the day:
Eddie: I think the only thing she can tell me about him that I don’t know is his favorite sexual position
Andie: ewwwww! I’d rather not think about that.
