My American vagina says I was supposed to be super psyched for Valentine’s Day and desperately wish I had a beau. The gun under my pillow disagrees. Two years. Happy divorciversary to me.
Stupid Crap I Tried Really Hard to Believe When I Was Married
“Your wedding ring is real.”
“I didn’t start that house fire.”
“I have a job. They just aren’t paying me… like the last job I had. ”
“I don’t know where your iPod/guitar/grandma’s bracelet/video camera is! Stop calling me a liar!”
“I wasn’t the one who wrote all of those bad checks.”
“You can’t call me at work or I’ll get in trouble.”
“I got fired, because you called me at work.”
“I paid the rent. They evicted us because we have a cat.”
“I don’t know where that $400 went.”
“I’m sorry your lost the hundred-dollar bill from your wallet, but it wasn’t me.”
“I had the rent money, but I got mugged… again.”
“I don’t know why they issued an arrest warrant.”
“I’m no longer welcome at family events, because they think I stole from them and I didn’t.”
“I have to work out-of-town… over night… for the job that’s not paying me… and I’ll need your car.”
“I’m enrolled in college again.”
“I don’t know why the dog dug a hole in the floor and is bleeding. I didn’t keep him chained up the entire time you were in Alaska with your mother.”
“I changed the oil. I don’t know why the engine exploded.”
“I fed the dog. I took him out. That dried urine he’s laying in must be fresh.”
“While you were working two jobs, I spent the whole day applying for work. That’s why I couldn’t clean anything.”
“My friend you’ve never met bought me those frozen pizzas from 7 Eleven. I didn’t steal your money.”
“My mother moved everything that survived the fire into storage for us. She didn’t throw it out.”
“I won $400 on a scratcher!” I later found out that this was his one and only paycheck from the gas station that ‘never paid’ him. He even tried to argue against the W2.
– Roses are red.
So is the dog’s blood.
You’re fucking crazy.
I hope you die soon. –
I’m not one for poetry.
