39. Smiley Cookies, STDs, & Divorce Lawyers
When I got home Marti texted me. Her ex’s second wife had texted Marti to say he caught his third wife in bed with another man. Marti sent her ex a smiley face cookie, a pamphlet on sexually transmitted diseases, and the business card of her divorce lawyer.
I showed my wife the text. “Marti kills me,” I said, laughing.
My wife said, “Marti’s smart. She’s putting a little more distance between them before her ex even approaches her. And the STD pamphlet was a nice touch.”
“You think he’d contact her now, after all he did to her?”
“He’s so arrogant, he’d think he was doing her a favor, giving her a second chance. She walked away, which was smart, and she kept on walking, which was smarter still.”
Today I will see if I can put a little more distance between me and toxic people.
