Blogging and Hypocrisy...

Bringing this one back…because even though it’s been three years, I still feel this way sometimes.

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…

The answer?  Because I can.  I was actually surprised at how accurate the comparison is.

Case in point:

  1. He tries to defeat me with pure logic: 
  2. And his logic is so logical I’m like: 
  3.  And I’m all like, riiigggght:
  4.  I have one of two reactions: or: 
  5. There are days I really, really want to respond with: or:  
  6. But instead, write the perfect comeback: 
  7. And I picture him reading it and thinking: 
  8. And I walk away: 

Wow.  I feel so much better now.

  1. OMG! This is fabulous! LOL! I have to say that there is nothing dreamier than David in defense of his woman! LOL! Those eyes are the killer! 🙂 On another note…you are doing right by the kiddos…and they will see the Goblin King’s true colors…when they need to…and it will all be on him! Even though my ex and I are on good terms…my oldest…figured out the story all on his own…and I never said a bad word about his dad. 🙂 Hang in there, girl…it doesn’t last forever!

  3. How about how Peter Capaldi Doctor would handle it. “You’ll find that the universe is very small when I’m angry with you.”
    Oh snap.
