The List

You know The List – the list of five people you’re allowed to sleep with without your significant other getting upset.  A “freebie,” if you will.

I remember sitting around at work once, talking with some friends about The List, and one of my co-workers said she didn’t have a list.  “There’s no one I would cheat on my husband with.”

“But, it’s just kind of a hypothetical, you know?  And besides, he can’t get mad at you for it.”

She just shook her head and gave the rest of us a kind of blank look.

Now, I completely understand where she’s coming from.  I don’t have a list anymore.  I don’t even know that I ever had a fully formed list (although I do remember Ed Harris was on it).  It could be I don’t have a list because I don’t know any of the young, hot actors anymore.

But I think the real reason I don’t have a List is that I don’t need one.  I would never cheat on my husband, even if it were an agreed upon “freebie.”

What about you – do you have a list, and if so, who’s on it?

  1. Ha, “the list”. We have hypothetical lists but they’re silly and just for laughs. It’s not something I keep up with though, I don’t know who would be on it. It used to be Christian Bale 🙂

    • That’s just it – they’re hypothetical and just for fun. First, no, you will never have a shot with Christian Bale, and second, even if you ever met him, he probably wouldn’t go for you (not that you’re not awesome!). But even the hypothetical, just for fun list…nope, I couldn’t name one person I would put on it.

    I have never even thought of anything like this. I have been married for 22 years. My husband and I are of the same view – if either of us cheats, it’s over. No second chances – certainly no freebies. I don’t even have fantasies. I got all of that out of my system before I married!
