Also, just to be clear, divorce screws up your kids even if they’re all grown up #cherrypiecure

I went to Marcella’s store again this morning, because I didn’t want to be a stay at home lump.

While I was there, John’s mother called three times!

And then John texted. He wants me to meet Jewel. Why? Why? Why?

I didn’t text back.

Didn’t want to go to yoga with Marcella. She offered to cancel her date with Angelo, but I didn’t want to be that pathetic.

Went home.


I texted Tyler.

He sent me kisses and hugs, and indicated he was busy.

Of course.

I texted Cody.

“Are you seeing anyone else?”

“Just Nika, Mom.”

“Again? I thought you guys broke up?”

“How do you know that?”

“She told me.”

“Oh. Well, yes, we did. We still hang out every once in a while.”

“Ok, love. You don’t have to explain anything to me, you know.”

“I know. Mom, there’s something I want to tell you.”

“You don’t have to, honey.”

“I want to. I need you to know—all the girls I’ve dated, all the girlfriends I’ve had? I know there have been lot.”

I laughed. My little tomcat.

“There have,” I typed.

“I never cheated on any of them, Mom. It was always—one at a time. Or casual, we all knew it wasn’t exclusive. I promise.”

OMG. Son. Why do you think you need to tell me that?

I know why.

I burst into tears.

“I know Cody,” I typed. “I love you so much.”

“I love you too, Mom. And Nika loves you too, you know. I hope the two of you will keep in touch.”

“We will, my love.”

And that was my pathetic day.

Conclusions: I hate John and I am not going to meet Jewel and her thoroughly average breasts.


Or check the voice mails from my EX mother-in-law.

goddessofvictory: Nika loves you SOOO MUUUCCCHHHH, Mama Susan!

ilikeherbooty-full: Who’s Angelo? I thought Marcella’s new dude’s name was Brad.

susan-oh-susan: Yeah, she’s been dating Brad for a couple of weeks, but also texting with this guy called Angelo. I think it’s their first date? I don’t think that will come to anything.

BeautifulThingsEveryday: What the fuck are you doing Susan? Do not tell this pervert things.

ilikeherbooty-full: You’re such a slut, Marcella. I like that in a girl I’m not dating, ha ha ha.

BeautifulThingsEveryday: That makes no sense.

ilikeherbooty-full: Think about it.
