Just One More Thing


Can you believe there are people in their 20s who have
never lived in a world without the word "D'oh!"?

In last night's post, I made a list of things I did yesterday. If it seemed kind of random, that's because I fell asleep writing it, woke up late, and very quickly finished and posted it.

But the thing is, there was supposed to to be a point to my list.

The point was that I was going to list all these fairly mundane things, and then finish it up with the kicker. The kicker being the thing I said I was going to do in the post before last night's post.

The filing-for-divorce thing.

Yeah, I did that yesterday.

I could not find a single stock photo of a lefty
filling out a form. That's offensive.
Turns out if you're broke and you don't own anything or have any investments and your kid is old enough to decide who she wants to live with, getting divorced is pretty damn easy. Not that I'm advising anyone to be broke and not own anything or have any investments. Myself, I look forward to rectifying those things. Hell, if I had those things I probably wouldn't be getting divorced. Probably.

Anyway, so I blew the kicker to last night's post. But I just wanted to put it out there belatedly.

Confidential to Smee: $50K for a motorcycle? The mind boggles.


  1. In Texas, a divorce decree for a couple with no minor children and no significiant property is four pages long. And if the other side doesn't respond, you can go in, run through the answers to 13 questions on the default docket and get the judge to sign off on it in a hearing that takes about 3 minutes.

    Add kids to that equation and it balloons up to a minimum of thirty-four pages! Plus, they will make both parties take parenting classes.

    Good luck.

  2. My own was easy. No kids, no joint possessions, no alimony demands. The only thing was that she refused to be there to sign and so I had to wait almost a year and go through the hearing alone.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
