Follow his rules? Divorce was easier.

by DynamicDbytheC on June 23, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A funny woman told me her husband had a 10 page, detailed list of house rules. I said that seemed a bit much. She agreed and said she decided divorce was easier. She said friends asked her if over time it was easier seeing him (they had children and had to see each other because of kids) and if she would pee on him if she saw him on fire. She said that she wasn't to that level yet, but she was not longer at the level of considering toasting marshmallows if she saw him on fire. I told her she needs to come to Smithmag and start writing memoirs. She had one line after another about her divorce and I am still laughing.
