The things you say at poly gatherings. M had brought her boyfriend O and his primary N along to a poly evening that we attended together. A arrived a little after us and M and I were talking to someone else when he walked in. O was standing by the door and recognized A from pictures, so extended a warm greeting. A however did not know O and so, when “I’m O” didn’t spark anything, O added “You know. Araliya’s M’s O?”, which cleared things up immediately.
“Oh that’s X. He dated my boyfriend a few years ago but then decided he was straight for a while and broke it off and started dating my ex-girlfriend but that’s over because he’s come out again, but as gay this time. Be nice to him.”
“My lover’s so disorganized I have to check his schedule with his wife when I want see him.”
“Hi! I believe I’m your girlfriend’s girlfriend’s boyfriend’s girlfriend.”
