Spouses of Once and Again Addicts

"Hi, my name is Earl, I am married to a lovely lady, but she left me for a video tape of Billy Campbell's nekkid rear end. We had some kids but one day she went out to buy some magazines down at the corner store cause she heard Sela Ward was in 'em and she lost the kids in the parking lot. I haven't seen Earl Junior in weeks."__Jill


"Hi, my name is Joe. I didn't realize my wife had become obsessed with Billy Campbell until one night she insisted I wear a Rocketeer helmet to bed."__Jay
