The Pending Marriage of Morning Joe, Via SNL

posted by LaDona Harvey - 

As uncomfortable as you can imagine: 

I may not be normal, but I don't even date people who are in my profession, let alone in my building. 

I have seen too many office romances go sideways...from bad juju in hallways, to harassment lawsuits, it really seems like a bad idea. But others have certainly navigated it successfully. 

I am, let us say, a little emotional. OK, I will cop to it, I have a temper. I don't need to be getting into some office romance that might light me up. 

I am also terrible about hiding my feelings. You may have noticed that. *snicker*

This office romance was the worst-kept secret in the industry. Everyone knew about it. I am pretty sure all their viewers knew about it too. 

It's probably safe to say, their spouses figured out what was going on too. I mean, come on, it was obvious. 

I am a fan of love. I hope they can make a good run of it. And I hope they didn't blow up many others on their way to France to become engaged. 

Actually, I am pretty sure their former spouses got their lives ripped to shreds because of their hanky panky, and I don't respect that. If you have enough care for someone to marry them, have enough compassion for them to leave them before you sleep with someone else. It's a courtesy you can afford. 

It's also a courtesy in short supply these days. 

Don't get me wrong, I don't wish them ill. Heck, I hope they are very happy, and find great success in love. I am a fan of love, and a believer in it's power. I found love to be an uplifting experience. I just wasn't very good at marriage...

I can't help but wonder if, when your foundation is built upon the ruins of a former life, your marriage has a chance. 

Would you trust someone if they cheated on their husband or wife to get to you? 

I wouldn't. Not for a second. But I seem to be in the minority.
