Love930 just gave me an idea to start a discussion.
So, what was YOUR "WWIT" moment?
When my rose-colored glasses were off and I could really see his house and his yard. O_M_G
A pigsty inside and out. He was a packrat. I was only in his house once...okay twice. Once after I busted his door in and once...OMG...I'm just remembering this...must have blanked it out...I went in when he was not home. There aren't any police on this Board, are there? Okay. Actually, this was before I busted in his door, but he always kept the door unlocked. I mean, what thief could ever make their way through all the rubble and there was nothing to steal to speak of.
It was nighttime and I parked my car around the corner and casually walked into the house, but it was pitch black. I had to go back home for a flashlight. I drive back, park in the same spot, walk around the corner and right in. It was a mess! How sad was it to have to break into his house to try to gain a sense of who this JAM was when not with me. I didn't stay long, But listen to this, I saw that he was reading a few books. I took note of the titles. Next day, I saw one of the books on sale...I purchased it and put it right out on my coffee table for him to see the next time he came over. I don't remember the outcome. But now that I am thinking back, we told me shortly afterwards that he had a sense that someone might have come into his house...GULP. I, of course, never said anything but "really?" I don't think he ever put two and two together with that same book.
Now you would think seeing the inside of his house would be my WWIT moment...and if you did, you would be wrong. Because I still was hooked on him. It was only looking at that pigsty of a yard about a year later that would bring about the WWIT moment because I could never have lived with a man who just can't pick up or clean up after himself. Not that I was little Ms. Housekeeper, but you would not stub your toe on a sock that had been lying around for a while.
Okay...now that I fessed up about my B&E getting to my WWIT moment...your turn
