We all know that I try my hardest not to talk badly of my ex in front of the children. I use this space to get out my feelings and say things that I would certainly never say to him (especially in front of the children).
That being said, the Goblin King has been annoying the shit out of me for the past several weeks (I won’t go into it here…but the short shrift is he’s back to threatening to take me to court). So today I’ve decided to make a list of all the responses I’d like to use, with a little inspiration from Doctor Who. I know what you’re thinking…

- But instead, write the perfect comeback:
- And I picture him reading it and thinking:
- And I walk away:
Wow. I feel so much better now.
