My phone rang while I was at work yesterday, and it was an area code from a couple of towns over. I thought it might be my dad's friend who's setting up most of his birthday party, but I didn't have time then to answer it anyway. When I had a moment to check my voicemail, I got a nice shock. My dad's girlfriend, who I've never met, has my phone number and was wanting me to get together with her.

Let's see here. You used to screw my dad while he was married to my mom, I didn't even know of your existence until a week ago, you're pretty much no-one to me .... so why are you calling me again?

I haven't called her back. I'll have to, or it'll hurt my dad's feelings, but god damn, I do not want to talk to this woman.

    Awkward. If I were in your shoes, I'd like to think I'd be the grown up and let her speak her piece. Maybe she wants to explain things etc. about how things happened. I know you're not gonna wanna hear much of it, but as you said, for your dad's sake, you could maybe show this woman how someone with dignity behaves. Of course, if you don't like what she says, then you can always speak to your father and say that you can't bring yourself to have a relationship with her because of what happened. Just my opinion! (Of course if it goes REALLY bad you can arrange to poison her or set her on fire, or something)

    I don't think she wants to talk to me about the past; I doubt my dad told her that I knew about it. I think she just wants to get on my good side. It just strikes me as odd that she'd try to arrange to meet me for the first time without my dad.

    I called her back today; she didn't answer. I just left her a message telling her about his birthday party and left it at that.
