Last night there were cocktails on the boat.
This is the picture I took of the sunset. I wish I could say some really great things happened but no such luck. Drama, drama, drama. Ugh!.
First Roberta came down and it was just us for about an hour. I hadn't eaten so before she got there I had some leftover Indian food which Roberta really doesn't like. Not even a little. But before I was done she showed up and since I had already cooked it and I was hungry so I did finish it.
So we relaxed and sipped wine and then I got a call from Coleen to tell me "we are coming down to the boat". We being her and Mark. And I could tell Coleen had already had more drinks than she should.
So they came aboard and Coleen sat next to me and Mark just stayed at the back of the boat. that's him in the picture. Coleen was being very chatty and very ... I want to say tipsy but let's face it, she was drunk. She managed to get under Roberta's skin and there was friction between them all night. There were quite a few odd moments which I dismissed but as soon as the sun went down I started to clean up. Even though I got the feeling no one was anxious to go I started to put things away. Mark and Coleen got the hint and headed up to their car. This was good because Coleen spoke to me on the side and said Roberta was really getting her mad. To be perfectly honest Coleen was pushing some buttons and getting even me annoyed. I wasn't sad to see them go.
So in my mind I just thought my annoyance stemmed from jealousy that Mark was there... but after they left Roberta and I had a long talk. What she saw was something completely different. What she sees is Coleen using me to try to get to Mark. She was alternately flirting with me and then being very affectionate with Mark. And Roberta didn't like it one bit.
I got a real big dose of reality. Coleen's attachment to Mark is probably never going to go away. Roberta told me about how Coleen used another friend, Donnie, much the same way as me. So at the end of the day I feel used and wish I wasn't so obsessed with her anymore. I don't know what my next course of action will be but I think things need to stop. Roberta says she doesn't want me to get hurt but I'm afraid it may already be too late for that.
