An actual text-message conversation with my ex-husband:
MFA Mama: Could you please call Big Child? He has a field trip tomorrow that costs $9, and I am overdrawn because I loaned you that $40. He wants to know if you'll bring him the money so that he doesn't miss the trip.
The XY: Field trips aren't planned overnight. Why wasn't this paid for in advance when you signed the permission slip?
MFA Mama: He's been wanting to ask you. It isn't his fault (or mine) that you haven't taken any of your visitation in weeks. It is YOUR fault, however, that I am overdrawn. So maybe you should shut your hole or even APOLOGIZE instead of giving me grief.
I can't believe he hasn't remarried yet, y'all.
I'm not the only one having baby-daddy troubles. Go and love on Annie, of MFA Blogroll fame. She has since posted an apologia of sorts, in which she takes the high road on discussing HER ex's "dick size." Today? I am MORE THAN HAPPY to tell the whole wide innernet that The XY is packing a derringer. After all, one of the ironclad defenses against libel is TRUTH.
