I think you guys are right. I will probably contact him with the gambling ruse and tell him to keep it on the down low. But that's a good point about the wives. His wife will wonder about the late night clubbing. What a mess I've woven. To top it off, I did something similar with another more local friend. It maybe a good idea to head him off at the pass in case we run into each other with my wife present. You all are right in that I shouldn't involve friends in any way in the game. Never again. Thanks.
Posted By: Squeezylabeef Hi all,
Long time no communicate. Question for y'all.
A few months back an old friend came into town and he and I went out for dinner. I left the wife and kids at home. He doesn't know I hobby. I used this wonderful opportunity to hit it with a lovely provider lady after the friend wanted to make it an early night. So I was out quite late and lied to the Mrs. that my friend and I were out late going to clubs etc.
In a couple weeks my family and I are taking a vacay to his city. I haven't contacted him yet to tell him. Ideally, I'd like to get the families together, see his house, etc. Of course I'm nervous that the my wife might bring up the subject of our wild late night out. 'what?' he'll say 'he dropped me back at the hotel early 'cause I had an early flight he next day'. Incredibly awkward silence followed by ?
Should I a) not tell him I'm coming, b) get together and hope for the best that the 'wild night' subject doesn't come up or, c) something else?
