Adventures in Divorce

I always wondered why people who murdered their spouses didn't just get a divorce.... I now understand why

No, I'm not a prophetess. Cassandra, according to Greek mythology, spurned the advances of the Greek god Apollo and her gift of prophecy was cursed so that her predictions would never be believed. Such is my life. I tend not to think like most people, which is a gift... but also a curse. So step into my mind, take off your shoes and stay for awhile... you're always welcome, loved ones.

Vintage Hateration

Vintage Hateration - the fox and the grapes

Aesop's Fable: The Fox and the Grapes

One hot summer's day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch.

"Just the thing to quench my thirst," said he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch.

Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: "I am sure they are sour."

It is easy to despise what you cannot get.

I had to pull out a reference to this little tale and slap my Ex upside the head with it a few weeks ago (which was an incredibly apt and clever jab because the comments giving rise to it came from a conversation about my dating methodologies, and I'd told him about a guy I've been seeing who has an uncannily similar name to the aformentioned story..... conversation ended right then and there). He always says the meanest, most hateful things to and about me, making me out to be the worst person in the world and acting like he's way better off and happier without me (the looks on his face say otherwise, though). I know this is a common coping mechanism (foxes have been doing it for centuries, after all), but damn..... he really takes it too far, almost to a child-like level. He tells me and everyone else, including his new woman, that he still loves me, so then to turn around and treat me the way he does?? GTFOHWTBS!!* It's transparent hateration, which is never a good look...... not for foxes, and certainly not for people.

He must be expressing his love the same way that kids on the playground do...by pushing the girl over, pulling her hair, and putting bugs down the back of her dress lol
