Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (Topic: Had a fling)

Dear Brett Jolly,





Subject: We had a fling





John and I have known each other for many years. We started doing volunteer work and ended up in bed after one of the projects. We are both married and felt awkward afterwards. Our spouses do not know this happened and we are going to the same surprise birthday party this weekend. I feel strange going. What should I do?. I have not seen him since our encounter.





If you want your marriage to remain intact then you don’t need to see him. You both made a mistake, but you are both human. You cannot change what happened, but you can do your best to make sure it never happens again. Unfortunately, you are going to have to live with the fact that you committed adultery. There is no getting around that. It may be in your best interest to face your demons and get this party over with as soon as possible. If his spouse is attending with him and yours is attending with you then I doubt that much will happen anyway other than a few eye stares from across the room to each other. However, if the both of you are going there alone then it might wrestle up some emotional feelings (and you don’t need that). It is going to be an uncomfortable feeling for you both, but that is what happens when you cheat on your marriage. You will probably see him there at the party, but by no means do you need to be alone with him or have an extended conversation with him. As long as you stay with your husband (and he stays with his wife) then hopefully you both should be able to stay out of trouble. By the way, the next time you want to contribute to a charity, do yourself a favor and just send them a “check” instead! Here is the Phantom Poet to corrupt your weekend:





To err is human, but to forgive is divine


But to have sex with someone’s spouse is not a good sign


He was also married, but then he knew he was doing wrong too


But the thought of that didn’t stop him from going to bed with you


You both made a mistake, and hopefully you can leave it in the past


And let’s just hope that at the party neither one of you gets trashed


What’s done… is done, and you cannot change what you both did


But if you want to keep your marriages happy, then keep this secret hid


Hopefully you both will realize when you meet up for the birthday


You need to say hello, shake hands, and then walk the heck away


I guess there is one thing that seems to be over abundantly clear


You really go the “extra mile” whenever you “volunteer”


Of course, I am sure that this incident was in essence a rarity


Work, money, and/or time are the ONLY things you should give to charity


Once the word gets out about the what your charity work entails


Be prepared to receive a LOT of new charity offers in the mail


In fact, they will BUILD new charities for you, some are now under construction


But I don’t think your sexual favors will earn you any tax deduction


So when volunteering your services, I’m sure your hard work is felt


Just come prepared with work clothes, a good attitude and a chastity belt


So when you see this guy again, keep quiet for everyone’s sake and health


Because what they don’t know won’t hurt you or anybody else


So if you plan volunteer work with a married member of the opposite sex


Try to avoid temptation and pay your marriages the proper respects


Try to resist the urge and leave that person alone


Because the marriage you save might just be your own
