Ménage Trois

It's sweet and innocent and endearing to see two people connect - even when they are at their most awkward. Typically, the man will spout witty one-liners and buy his love interest fancy cocktails while she smiles and coos while twirling her hair. But on rare occasion, there is a train wreck happening on the other side of the bar, so horrendous that you are afraid to watch - but you do to ensure the safety of those involved. It is the ménage trois. A troubling result of human ingenuity usually involving one douche bag of a man and two writhing women who need more attention than a newborn baby. It never fails that the beginning of their evening will be spent laughing and having a jolly time, but as the witching hour approaches the daunting moment when they all take off their clothes and hang out together in one queen-sized bed, the tension thickens. It is at this point that the barbaric sexual innuendos cause each person's insecurities to fume into embarrassing outbursts.


When you have announced to the world that you are going home with two people, there really isn't anything that you consider poor behavior. Taking turns making out will ensue, and little moans and grunts will be exhaled. It is only when the bartender tells you that the corner freak show needs to stop and find a new home that the magic ends and you realize that you'd hate for one person to see your stretch marks - but now you've committed yourself to two.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
