Who wants a crybaby?
The Ex Files
My EX nervously cleared his throat and said, "Oh...yeah...sure..I talked to her about her mom."
And the shrink probed deeper and said "Did you tell her how you felt?" And he blinked and said, "Yeah I told her it was sad." The shrink clarified, "You feel it's sad? The divorce?" And he blinked back tears and said, "Yeah...and not having the family, you know..."
I was sitting there , listening, watching this all out of the corner of my eye...
Then time was up and my EX bolted out of there. As I was writing a check for the session, my shrink said, " I think he's making progress. You know I think he was fighting tears there when he said he was sad."
I've been thinking about that for hours. And here's the conclusion I reached. I hope the tears annihilate him. I hope he drowns in them. If he feels just a fraction of what I or my daughter felt in the last two years it will be more than he's ever felt in his whole pathetic life. He feels sad, huh. Boo-fucking-hoo. I felt betrayed. Abandoned. Wretched. Unloved. Lost. He destroyed my family. The world as I knew it was over.
But I'm making my own world now. And it has no room for him.
