My post earlier this week “When Are We Going to Realize That Marriage is Not For Everyone” had a lot of people commenting, emailing, and buzzing about what I had to say in the piece. One of the main things brought to me was the idea of “cheating“. Ohhh yes! CHEATING, The kiss of death in many relationships. Though I will be writing a future post on it I came across a funny yet interesting post over at Minus Bars site. It talks about how your girl can understand you cheating by making you peach cobbler??? Check it out…
A few months ago, myself and blogger The Mocha Peach engaged in a humorous discussion on Twitter concerning the telltale signs of cheating. The different ways that one could perhaps tell if their significant other had stepped outside of the relationship.
We discussed how cheaters acted and dressed differently, and the subsequent ways in which their math never added up, correctly. We reasoned that adamant denial was in no ways an escape from the truth. In fact, it’s straight up comedy staring in the eyes of someone who you know is lying.
I recalled an instance where an ex-girlfriend had subjected me to a “cheating test”, unto my knowledge. She suspected that I had placed my iron into the fire of another woman, and wanted to assure herself that her heated temperature wasn’t a simple matter of the stove in the kitchen.
Dessert. Everyone loves homemade dessert, especially men. Show me a man who doesn’t love the sweet course eaten at the end of a meal, and I will show you a man who has no idea what he’s missing.
A woman prepares and serves her man’s favorite dessert. She places the dish on the table in front of him and hands him a spoon. After pouring a glass of cold milk, she sets the glass next to the dish. Finally, she kisses her man on the cheek and tells him to enjoy. He thanks her, takes the anticipated first bite in her sight and replies to how great the dessert tastes.
Now, here is where the test begins:
If the man takes his time and enjoys the dessert, slowly washing each bite with milk, he isn’t cheating. Trust me. In fact, he isn’t thinking about another woman. His sweet tooth is completely happy with the good stuff at home. He is her man, and isn’t going anywhere.
If the man eats only half the dessert, then claims he will finish the rest later, don’t sweat it. Something is weighing heavily on his mind. Give him some breathing space. And don’t bother preparing anymore desserts in the near future. He will ask for some of your dessert when he’s good and ready.
The day after being accused of cheating I stopped by my girlfriend cousin’s apartment to see if she held any clues towards Tracy’s startling accusation.
Knowing Stephanie as I did, I knew she’d never volunteer information or go against Tracy in any matters. But I could talk to Stephanie which, hopefully, would lead to Stephanie talking some sense into her cousin. Sleeping on the couch the entire night just wasn’t me.
“What happened?” she asked, slowly closing the door behind me.
“I have no idea. She just flipped out and started screaming and throwing peach cobbler at me.”.
“Oh,” she replied, rather nonchalantly. ”She gave you The Peach Cobbler Test.”
I paused. “The Peach Cobbler Test?”
After Stephanie gave a detailed explanation of the test, and all it entailed, I reached for my car keys and headed towards the door. “Y’all women are crazy.” I laughed, adding that I had never heard anything more ridiculous in my entire life.
Stephanie walked behind me – arms folded, a slight smirk drawn across her face. Her eyes probed mines, as if sending a message to my brain. DNA has nothing on The Peach Cobbler Test, it suggested.
She stood in the doorway and studied my body language as I unlocked the car door, slid into the driver’s seat and drove away. ”The Peach Cobbler Test,” I repeated, braking at the stop sign. “Tracy has lost her mind.”
That’s when I actually thought about the test and the answers and everything that happened last night, and all I could say to myself was, ”Damn.”
Tracy had me.
