Definition of surreal

Having a conversation with my mum and sister about the possibility of the stripper who my sister organised for my hens' night over 12 years ago being available to "perform" at my mother's upcoming cocktail party for her friends. Weirder still is that my sister is a FB friend with the aforementioned stripper who used to be in Manpower (or some such) but is now a choreographer. After some FB to-ing and fro-ing it was discovered he no longer did stripping himself but could recommend some of the younger boys he now choreographs for. After some more to-ing and fro-ing my mother decided against such form of entertainment for reasons I can't possibly describe here (no, not those reasons).

How did my life come to this?

P.S. Further surreal aspects of my life right now: I will be having coffee with my ex-husband on Saturday morning. Haven't seen him for 10 years or so, will be interesting to catch up. Sure he left me for my best friend's (at the time) sister-in-law after meeting her at their wedding, but any hard feelings have long since evaporated (and she did end up helping BIg Jay and I buy a very nice Ikea bedroom suite for a give-away price).

I was going to write, 'and besides, you ended up with Big Jay so that's all the revenge you need when meeting up with your ex'...

....but then I thought - GET BIG JAY TO DO THE STRIPPER THING AT YOUR MUM's DO! It could be a brand new career opening for him!

Sounds like a plot-line for Bold and the Beautiful -minus the Ikea furniture!!

Big Jay changing career paths and trying a bit of stripping was discussed but that went as far as it should have... not very.

No hard feelings with the ex. He got what he deserved when his new girlfriend left him a few years later for his best friend. Karma possibly? He's a decent bloke, I wish him all the best.
