They say life is not like a soap opera --
those fables on TV of fantasy,
great wealth, excessive cheating, murder, and greed,
with lives that seem too ridicuously dramatic to ever be real.
And yet -
someone had to tell me
that my husband was caught with another woman
by his pregnant girlfriend
who doesn't know he's married to me
and not divorced.
Who says life isn't like a soap opera?
