{The Scabs family is taking the last few weeks of summer off and away from most electronics. A vacation.   I will return August 13th for more of the Scabs Saga.  The following is a re-post.} 

May 2011

I burned his underwear.  Every last pair.

I hated each one...did he think he was so sexy in them?  uggg.  My mind could see some random Asian hooker with her tacky manicured lime-green nails stripping those underwear down MY husbands thighs.  That was supposed to be me!!!  I wanted to pull them off his body!

My body crumbles, sobbing, bawling.  I'm going mental.

Thank God for the best girlfriends.  She held me until my sobs turned to sniffles.  Without speaking she built a girl-scout sized fire then handed me the Aqua Net hairspray.  I love her!  I had a mini-flame thrower and I felt powerful!  I'm sure my face was red and swollen from crying, my eyes were stained with smudged mascara and I could barely breath when I dropped the first pair into the fire.  I watched them melt, combust and disappear under the blue and orange flames.  I might have had a few moments of laughing hysteria. Don't judge.

Sparks rose into the dark sky, burning then dying.  I like to think that fire took some of my rage with it.  Burning then dying.

I felt a little better.


  1. I bet it felt good to finally have an ounce of control!

  2. Makes me think of that movie where Angela Bassett caught her husband cheating and she lit up all of his stuff on the front lawn. The police (or whoever) came by and told her she could only burn trash, and she replied that she was burning trash.



    1. i actually dreamed of doing what one of the characters on WEEDS did when she found out her husband was cheating...she shaved his head while he was sleeping. it was beautiful!

  3. yay!!Why should we always have to respond in a calm "ladylike" fashion. Why can't we just burn sh*t down! Glad you did!

    I "suggested" to my husband that he buy us a new bed - I would have set the old one on fire if I had the guts... you inspire me!

    1. Yeah, I didn't want to have anything to do with any of our old stuff. bed, bedroom decor, clothes etc...

      great reason to buy new furniture and paint the walls a new bold color!
