Default Shopping

So my wife my GF and I go shopping. I am helping my GF look for some stuff, while my wife decides to wander around looking for coupons.

One of the staff approach my wife ' you look like you are just wandering around, is there something I can help you with?'

My wife says to him, no its ok I am waiting on my husband, he is helping his GF do some shopping.

Clerk says that must be awkward?

Wife responds with , no awkward is that his GF's husband is at home waiting for us.

The look on him was priceless, and he kind of just , well he almost ran away lol.

"So Fiona and I went to this play on Saturday, right? It was great, by the way, I mean fantastic. Anyway, there are like 3 gay couples, gay men that is, in the theatre, because if you're going to find an accepting area in Indiana, it's there, and everyone was fine with them holding hands, kissing, whatever. Fiona and I hold hands and people STARE. I mean, they can't seem to drag their eyes away. Granted, it could be because were talking about our husbands and how it was nice to have a night away from the boys..."

This was addressed to my sister (and obviously Fiona's real name was used when I was talking). Who doesn't technically know that Fiona and I are dating. Oops. I got another weird look after this one. She had the tact to smile and laugh it away though.

My wife and I are about 4 months into an intimate relationship with a very close friend of 8 years. Here's some of the things I never thought we'd say...

"I wonder if they make a bed designed for 3 people"

"He's your boyfriend, you figure out what to text him."

Me after being away for a night on business and he spent the night: "If I wasn't privy to the fact that you're seeing him, my pillow being on the other side of the bed would definitely raise some flags." Her: "That's not your pillow, it's his. Yours is over here." Me: "I suppose that would be suspicious too!"

things I never thought I'd hear...

So over Christmas, I told my parents about my 'new' relationship (with two old flames).

About a month later, hanging out with my dad (who has been with my step-mom for well over 30 years), we're talking about our history. and my polyship.

Him: 'I'm guessing you know, or have figured out, that your mom and I tried that.'
/me mentally picks my jaw up off the floor
Me: 'not so much'
Him: explains, in the most minimal way possible
Me: doesn't ask for details, but offers 'that makes a lot of things make sense'

and, for bonus points, *he* offers up the lesson that if the third is only accepting poly because that's all that's on offer, when she really wants the man for herself, it ain't gonna work. I said, yep, they have a name for that too, they're called 'cowboys.' He laughed.

I'm trying really really hard to not be creeped out.
