Works of mercy
If you have any dealings with my ex-wife this weekend, please be kind.
While she'd normally be enjoying a few days off, most of that enjoyment this year is likely to be overwhelmed by the cruelty of the calendar.
(The infernal consistency of the darn thing. Had I my druthers, she'd be able to knock off a few months for every year she spent with me; on the other hand, she'd likely claim that every year she spent with me aged her a few extra months, and we're back to square one.)
I'm not even going to pay her back for the moderately snide card she sent me for my 50th.
