Changes aboard the Privateer...

Ok... I'm in a fairly good place emotionally right now, so I'll bare my life for y'all.

I had mentioned some "crew changes" aboard the Privateer. Maybe I should go into a little more detail. Just remember, y'all asked me to share: judge, and you'll get told where to go...

For those who haven't figured it out from previous posts, I'm polyamorous: literally, "many loves". I'm fairly devoted to my wife, Spoon, but there are other women that share my soul (if you will). One is in Mississippi (Jules), engaged to a nice guy and just had a child (which we will be doing our best to spoil). The other (Squeaker) has been living in Waukegan, and has been sharing our life almost as another wife... until just recently.

Seems she found herself another guy, and fell in love: on the phone. Needless to say, I've been going through a rollercoaster of hurt and confusion. Spoon, being nice to look at (but none too bright) has been a complete trooper: there was a reason I married her, and she's been reminding me of it constantly. As per normal, adversity just makes our relationship grow stronger...

So there y'all go: looks like the Privateer is losing a crew member. There may (at some point) be another addition: I know one of my new co-workers has been a true brother through this: he's been having his own troubles, and we've been commiserating quite a bit. And Spoon and I may one day find someone who wants to share our life: we'll see. For now though, our crew is down one... :(

Now where'd I put the rum?

Yeah, I figured it was a personal shakeup of some sort - I'm sorry to hear that you've lost a love, but you've got someone to help you with it, and that's important and a very nice thing. Hope you feel better.

I can be dense...I *hadn't* figured it out ;)

I've got poly friends who have gone through those emotional upheavals. It's hard, no matter how logical you want to be about it.

If you need a friend to talk to who's completely outside it all, write or give a call, okay?

Sorry to hear that, bro. Rough times, it sounds like. I hope it's at least amicable, so far as that sort of thing can be...
Best wishes, and hope the waters smooth out for you real son. Check your email, you've been tagged.

Reminds me of a line from a book about a man having more than one wife, he's either the luckiest man alive or the biggest fool...
Can you sail that thing when you are down one crewmember?
Keep yer chin up, it will all work out.
