It was my mother who was calling to discuss our dinner plans for the evening and also to inform me that she’s filing for divorce from my dad. They’ve been married for 27 years. Now, we all have seen this coming for a long time.
Knowing somethings going to probably happen (for ten years) and it actually happening are different though. I actually wish they’d done it long ago so they could have both moved on by now. Word to the wise: there’s no point staying in a loveless marriage for the sake of your kids. They can tell that’s what you’re doing.
Anyway, I got off the phone and headed to work. I went to get breakfast at this little store and realized I didn’t have my cash on me and my debit card is being a little bitch (it’ll only work in ATMs) so I told the guy I’d be right back for my BLT Bagel and Latte.
I ran to the Restaurant to grab cash but when I headed back over to the breakfast place, the guy told me someone had already paid for it for me. I guess someone felt the need to up their Karma and chose me to do it for.
Whoever you are, thank-you! I really needed that.
