The Love God; The Art of Amends

You’ve really messed up your relationship this time. Maybe you’ve been caught cheating. Maybe you were arrested at a gay nightclub that you thought was just a really cool looking bar but turned out to be a high priced, all male bordello. Maybe you blew the lease payment on the over of the Colts/Saints game because they both had really explosive offences and sucky defenses but you somehow forgot that Peyton Manning was really just a giant blue and white clad vagina with a helmet. Maybe your longtime crack addiction was found out when you tried to sell your neighbor’s Dalmatian puppies and got arrested and when your wife was bailing you out of jail they asked her why she was bailing out the local prostitute-for-some-crack head guy so she asked you and you finally admitted that you happen to enjoy the occasion 8-ball of rock after a hard day of felatio.  

I still have two. Only $20. You’re girlfriend will love em, come on!

We’ve all been there before and probably more than once. Maybe even as the result of worse scenarios than the ones that have never happened to me but that I used as examples. Now you need to show her that you’re sorry and convince her that nothing ‘like this’ will ever happen again. Note that it is very important to lie convincingly in these situations. If you find that you need to, lie to yourself first. This way you’ll be more convincing. If you can’t lie like a real man, I mean.  

At this stage most men would buy their partner some roses. But most men are vaginas, just like that Peyton Manning. Big quarterbacking vaginas. What are roses other than a beautiful, delicate living thing that you pay someone else to sacrifice on the altar of forgiveness just so you won’t have to sauté your own chicken breasts and hang your own track suits? (That was rhetorical; you don’t really have to answer.)  

Well fuck that. You don’t need some other person to do your killing for you. You can do your own killing and on a grander scale! If you live in a rural area, you need to grab your shotgun from your pickup truck and go kill something. Now bring the carcass back like a cat (you are the cat in this scenario) would do to make its owner proud. The bigger the better. If you can kill and drag home a bear you are guaranteed forgiveness. This tactic will appeal to her subconscious, cavewoman-like craving for an alpha male. You are demonstrating that while you may gamble away the kid’s college fund, or pawn the household electronics for drug money, the family will always be stocked up in bear steaks and fireplace pelts.  

If you happen to live in an urban area just substitute ‘derelict’ for ‘bear’ and ‘body’ with ‘carcass’ and you have pretty much the same thing. Although the fireplace pelt won’t look as homey or be as comfy to have sex on as the bearskin, in all honesty.  

Not a good place for your naked ass.

Another option for gaining forgiveness is to offer her a bribe. Obviously this option isn’t quite as viable if you are a gambler or a crackhead because if that’s the case you’re pretty much broke. Why else would you have been prostituting yourself and selling stolen puppies? But if you do have money just ask her how much it’ll take to make it “like all this never happened?” It may surprise you how a little cash can buy you a lot of amends. This tactic will work especially well if your partner is a prostitute as well.      

Another idea is to take her on an impromptu vacation. This is a prudent course of action anyway if you’ve just murdered a derelict for sport. A word of caution though; if you are a gambler, a sex fiend or drug addict do NOT take her to Vegas, Morocco or Thailand, or you will wind up swimming upstream in a river of fucked. And not the good kind, believe me.  

Not a good destination for people like you.

Or you could simply introduce her to your world. This lazy but effective choice is perfect for leveling the playing field. If you are a crackhead simply start adding little pieces of crack to her cigarettes. She’ll be addicted in no time and *she will no longer be mad at you. *Although we’ve had preliminary success we need more extensive case studies before we can guarantee this result.      

The last option that I am personally aware of is to tell her that you’ve just found out from your doctor that you have an especially virulent, infectious and fast acting (I’m hoping all those medical words don’t mean the same thing) strain of AIDS and that she “definitely” has it too, and that you are both going to die within three months. Spend the next day or two being sensitive and giving her some space to process the news. When you sense that she has accepted her fate, look her in deeply in the eyes, flash your winningest smile and say, “Sike.”  

She’ll have a new lease on life and you’ll have next month’s lease money to play online poker.  

My screen name is Zodikllr. Like the zodiac killer? Because it sounds intimidating.

I’m going to address questions in the next Love God post so please give me some more. They need to be about anything relating to relationships and/or sex. You know that my advice can only help you and make the world a better place in the process, so what are you waiting for?

  2. See, this is exactly why I fly solo. I’m never lonely and no one ever has to make amends. Besides, me and bschooled are best beotches and we’re collaborating on books (too busy for relationships). Hehe.

    • You certainly have the right idea. The only thing is… I want in. I can be a beotch too. Even a best beotch. I’ll work at it and everything. Please? I need someone to collaborate with. I don’t have the organizational skills to finish a book alone.

  3. I would probably try the “introduce her to your world” approach first. I would take her to a strip club and buy her a few lap dances. Next thing you know she will leave me for the stripper and I won’t have to worry about disappointing her again. I think it’ll work!

    Comment by Jay | September 2, 2010 | Reply

    • That is a brilliant choice Jay. I’ve been friends with a few strippers in my time and believe me if you introduce them to new ‘friends’ you will have access to the best party favors in the club 24/7. Before you know it, you’ll forget all about your lost love interest.

      Thanks Jay!!

  8. Having an old lady that can skin a cougar in the dark might, or might not, have a bearing on shooting something to bring home as a bribe. Just don’t combine the aids thingy and the game thingy, because she can probably shoot the eyes out of a squirrel at two hundred yards, and I know I can’t run that fast, bro.

    You know, Payton IS a vagina with a helmet. Maybe if the gets that yeast infection fixed . . .

    • I thought you might love all those things. I sensed an immediate kinship (I hope that doesn’t mean related?) with you.

      Sometimes I have my finger on the pulse of passed out drifters too. (Sometimes you don’t even have to kill them, on account of their lifestyle.)

  16. Scott…I had an early morning dream today featuring you and your pet bear. What is your deal with bears lately anyway? So in this dream we are all enjoying a pool, including the bear, (it’s a dream sequence…just nod along) at the home of some friends I hardly ever see. You are smoking like a fiend IN the pool (nodding, nodding) and I am playing with the bear (sure). My kids are also present and I eventually tell the anecdote about returning about 6 bottles of sunscreen to Target because, like the people who continually buy mayonnaise, I always think I’m running out but never am.

    I got nuthin.

    BTW, I am an avid reader of your postings…I am working up the guts to comment more often.

    Comment by Mick_Chick | September 3, 2010 | Reply

    • What the deal with bears? They are walking, swimming, climbing, flying(?) furballs of lethal bitey, clawy death. Right now they are only being outshone by zombies on the cool kid circuit.

      So what was I smoking?

      Did I look good in a banana hammock?

      I love that anecdote!

      Well thank you. I hope you continue to comment more, yours are hilarious!

      Thanks Mick_Chick!!

      • I am mortally terrified of bears…they have been a recurring haunt of my dreams since I can remember! Only thing I am more afraid of are dogs but really bears are king terrors because I’m pretty sure a bear won’t just go away when you yell at it cuz it’s sniffing your ass.

        Smoking a cigarette? I don’t know, my dreams are not that specific so if you want, picture yourself smoking whatever you please but just keep it out of the pool because it’s simply foolish. And really, your attire did not make the directors cut upon waking…sorry.

        PS: met a woman yesterday with the same birthday as mine…it’s always weird to me how when two Pisceans meet it’s like martians finding each other

        Comment by Mick_Chick | September 5, 2010 | Reply

        • No bears are a sight more burdensome than crotch (or ass) sniffing dogs. I’ve never had a dream about one, thank God but I’ve been afraid of them since I was a child as well. I think I was on one of those guided zoo tours and they told us (5 year olds) about their razor sharp claws and ability to swim, climb and basically just hunt you down and murder you. Ever since then I’ve had this inexplicable fear.
          I only asked because you said that I was smoking nonstop in the pool. I was wondering if it was something more interesting than cigarettes. I haven’t smoked anything in a long time…!

  17. All good suggestions, but you do realize that the concept of a man making amends to a woman is complete and utter malarkey because women never, ever, EVER forget how you’ve fucked up, even if we’ve allegedly “forgiven” you. Sometimes I wish I was a dude so that when things were over, they could truly be over and not just squashed down to a deep dark place where it will continue to fester until one day it all explodes and I probably die of a stress aneurysm. Yay!

    as for amends – I guess when I was younger I was a bit demanding

Great post aqs always, my good man! i have no idea what to say about helmet-wearing vaginas or making love on dead homeless people. your talent for advice-giving overwhelms me. i’m pretty sure though that I would be a tad irked if someone siked me on virulent aids, but I’d forgive if it was just syphillis.

    • The good news is that you don’t have to say anything about a helmet wearing vagina; you just have to avoid making wagers based on them. And I would completely avoid sex on a dead homeless person, I hear they carry scabies.

      Well thankfully you just let the entire virtual world in on your personal rules of Sike so I can’t see anybody making that mistake. Not after this!
