Work Wife Fun..
Like many professional men, I had a very good, close female friend I worked with, or, "work wife". We were on the road a lot, spent many hours together, had our own inside jokes and banter, and, to be honest..Looked like a couple. It worked great writing business, as she and I had a 1-2 punch that people loved. Got asked dozens of times "How long are you two married", and "You're so cute together..What a great couple". Yeah, we played it up at times for business, but mostly..We were that close, had lunches and dinners together, even changed clothes in front of one another (including a sexy, red, Marylin Monroe-type dress I bought her when we were out one day...Damn she looked gorgeous in it). We were a team in many ways.
My now-ex wife was an alcoholic, so, anytime we argued, she'd throw the work wife in my face as a defense against my telling her she was a drunk. Hundreds of accusations, mostly untrue..But one: I did have work wife at my house once, and we did end up in the guest bedroom, letting loose and exploring amazing sex with each other. Ex wife only accused me of having her at the house, but never knew I'd fucked her in the guest bedroom, twice. Or that, one Christmas, I took work wife to the city for the day and we had a great time, while ex wife was on one of her boozing blitzes. Could barely pry myself away from work wife when we returned home.
I don't miss the drama that work wife brought with her, but admit and confess..I do miss being with her. Often wonder if we were actually in love and just denying it...
