MasterCard Expanded

Assuming an intelligent, great looking lady fell in love with a guy- very attractive mid 20 yuppie. They managed to build a home of their own and after six years of marriage, three kids are already running around the house. Due to house chores and rearing the children, the woman altogether stopped working from a prestigious firm and gained a lot of pounds from making a career out of motherhood.

The man, still looking very attractive and very dignified, is doing something many men are secretly doing--having an extra curricular affair. He is madly pursuing a very attractive woman from his office. He thought that as long as he is providing food in the table, attend the 'daddy obligation' and still going home with his wife, he can be classified in the society as the good man-in-the-house.

The woman, after years of being a mother, was still doing all her best to please her hubby. Though her beauty is fading, traces of the what-have-been is still visible from her expanding body. She heard rumors that her husband is doing something fishy but shoved it off as a gossip.

A year passed and unexpectedly, the man said "I don't love you anymore. I met someone else. I want a divorce."

The woman was shattered into pieces but cannot do anything but to comply. She got their home and their children and bade the man away with only tears in her eyes. The man started a whole life with a new bride and a new home. He is never been happier.

The woman, looking in the mirror, discovered her inner strength and her inner beauty. She decided to get back the years she lost. She applied for a job, got in and rose to ranks while juggling being a father and mother to her three kids.

The pounds were shed and after months of continuous exercises, she is the woman she had been and she had hoped for—a woman honed with real life experiences and sharpened with downright self accomplishment.

While walking inside a restaurant for a corporate meeting, wearing a very striking attire, she saw her ex-husband with his eyes wide opened.

She taught:

Gym Membership : $100

Red Dress : $150

Reaction from a good-for-nothing, ass wipe, jerkaholic ex-husband:


Yeah, yeah, a quasi MasterCard thing again!

Moral of the story: I don't know. I just have the 'writer’s block' at this sue me hehe!

kawawa naman ang tao kung nakatingin lang sa skindeep beauty ng tao, hehe.

pero naniniwala rin ako dapat maintainmo rin ang katawan mo, kung di ka maganda o pogi at least di mo papabayaan kung ano meron ka.

oks to story mo, nakakatuwa.

btw i-nedit ko yung post ko about makulot, nilagay k link nung mga sumama, tapos nagyaya sang bloggers eyeball sa bundok, hahaha, may kakagat kaya?

From your story though, you said the man has never been happier with the new wife.

The woman, newly empowered, may think the man is in total shock. I'm sure he was. But since he's already totally happy with his current situation, it was more of a i'm happy for you type of shock rather than i wish i could have that again type of shock.

But yeah, I have been there in that situation when I was dumped. Hit the gym. Hard. Muscles baby. Gained up the corporate ladder. Money baby. Meet her again at the bar one day. Priceless.

That was a good one, Jef. but joke as it was, it can make people think too, for it is a reality after all.
But I, for one, don't believe that a woman has to neglect herself and baloon to the size of Roseanne Barr's just because she's a housewife. she can still be as intelligent and as interesting as what she wanted herself to be.

...I should know. i'm living with one. :)

hmmm...tatlong anak. maglinis ng bahay na tatlong minuto lang magmumukhang malinis dahil tatlo ang tsikiting. magluto. maglaba. mamalantsa. kung nambababae si mister, wala kang katulong sa trabaho. puyat ka lagi dahil dedede raw. ewan ko na lang kung may time ka pang mag-gym.

kung aalagaan ng lalaki ang babae sa pamamagitan ng pagsuporta sa kanya at pagtulong sa bahay, ewan ko lang kung may pabaya sa katawang misis.

nothing makes a woman glow better than the bitter sting of being dumped and trying to gain her self-esteem. pero hindi na iyon babalik sa taksil niyang asawa. iyon ang priceless. haha. mas wise na siya. dami kong nakitang kaibigan na ganyan. :)

hahaha. Is this in any way autobiographical? I guess the whole for richer por poorer, in sickness in health bit should add... in thinness and flabbiness, in beauty and haggardness, as long as you both shall live.

The guy probably loved the woman merely for her looks so when that was gone, so was the marriage. And the woman was superficial enough to make a relationship out of it.

These are the times when singlehood is a lot more appealing. hah!

Like what they use to say,

Not my line here, but anyways, the reason why the hubby is never happier because he saw his ex in this new woman, now his seeing her back. The ending would have been better in the ex have met him in the arm of a new Adonis and pretend that she hadn't noticed. wahwah...

Priceless indeed!

(although I have to interject that just because a woman is at home with 3 kids does not mean that she also is unhappy and therefore lets herself go. There are a lot of completely fulfilled stay at home moms. Not that that was what you were trying to say. ;)

CRUISE: Thanks,man! You are right, dapat hindi lang skin deeo. There is more to a person than beauty.

VFG: That's so sweet, looking into the face of the one who dumped you. Maybe you were thinking, "Who's the losser now ha!"

REY: Yeah! A mother should not neglect herself. She must realized that she IS still an individual that needs a pamper and a little bit of self-indulgence.

ATTICUS: Hahaha! Indeed, nothing makes a woman glow when her ex will be ogling at her again.

YMIR: Taken from 'little prince' eh! But yep, those which are essential are really invisible to the eye.

ALTERNATI: Hail to the singles hehe! But I do hope that man will really look beyond imperfections. Sometimes, we're such a prick:-)

NEIL: Hehehe! Glad you like it, Neil...and hey, I'm not mean, CRUEL is more like it hahaha!

SIR VIC: You know what, that's a very GREAT ending by the way. I should have thought about that. The ex-hubby will just scratch his head with so much despair for sheer stupidity :-)

JIN: Diners! VISA ayaw mo hehe!

ROXANNE: You are right there, Rox! Many mothers, my mom is one, are very fulfilled with their own chosen path--to be a the source of strength for their kids. But sometimes, a woman should not let herself loose her individuality. She is still a woman after all, not only for her husband but for herself as well.

RHO-ANNE: Kaya nga eh, dapat kasi katuwang ang lalake, pero sa Pinoy society, mangilan-ngilan lang ang lalakeng tumutulong sa gawaing bahay.

Well the woman should've maxed out her husband's credit card before she let him go. Now THAT would be PRICELESS...

if i were to marry, i'd let my wife work so she can have a life other than ours but we'll both attend to our children... by that, she can still figure out what she can do best in a different venue other than the kitchen...
