Why I Am Divorced

November 5, 2013
Last week was my birthday and I didn’t feel very well waking up on that morning.
 I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my husband would be pleasant
  and say, ‘Happy Birthday!’, and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out, he barely said good morning, let alone ‘ Happy Birthday.’

 I thought…… well, that’s marriage for you, but the kids…. they
 will remember.

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfasts and didn’t say a word..

So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

Morning, lady, and by the way Happy Birthday! ‘

It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o’clock , when Rick knocked on my door and said,
‘You know, it’s such a beautiful day outside,
and it is your birthday, what do you say we go out to lunch, just you
and me….’

 I said, ‘Thanks, Rick, that’s the greatest thing I’ve heard all day. Let’s go!’

We went to lunch. But we didn’t go where we normally would go. He
chose instead a quiet bistro with a private table. We had two martinis
and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.

On the way back to the office, Rick said, ‘You know, it’s such a
beautiful day…
we don’t need to go straight back to the office, do we?’

I responded, ‘I guess not. What do you have in mind?’ He said, ‘Let’s
drop by my place, it’s just around the corner.’

After arriving at his house, Rick turned to me and said, If you don’t
mind, I’m going to step into the bedroom for just a moment.
I’ll be right back.’
‘Ok.’ I nervously replied.

He went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, he came out
carrying a huge birthday cake ….
followed by my husband my kids, and dozens of my friends and
co-workers, all singing ‘Happy Birthday’.

And I just sat there….

On the couch……
