Comic Book Dialogue

My kids came over this weekend. They say their mom is coming over to take my daughter to church on Sunday and if she doesn’t go to church that she’ll be grounded. Now anybody who is aware of my situation will know that when my kids’ mom and I were on good terms I used to allow her to take my daughter to church, but things went South last March when she started disregarding the parenting time court order which forced me to take her to court. A flashback is as follows:

Me: Don’t do this Carol. If you make me take you to court over this then all the goodwill will be gone between us and I’m not gonna allow you to take the kids early anymore, I’m gonna hold you to the letter of the law.

Carol: I don’t care, take me to court. I’m gonna win.

Me: You’re gonna lose. You don’t have a legal basis for defying the court order.

Carol: I know I’m gonna win because God is on my side!

Me: Look, I’m being serious. I don’t mean in imaginary religious-land, I mean in real life you’re gonna lose and you’re gonna lose big.

Carol: I’ll just take that chance!

Long story short, Carol lost and I don’t allow her to take my daughter to church any more, for the above reason and more importantly because the church people persecute my daughter for her atheist beliefs.

Returning back to the present, I tell my kids “Your mom can’t punish (daughter) for staying with me for court ordered visitation, that’s an attempt to interfere with parenting time!”

“Well that’s what she said.”

The current practice is that I allow my son to go back to his mom on Saturdays because that’s what he wants whereas my daughter likes to stay until Sunday evenings. So on Sunday morning I get a call. My son says:

“Can I talk to (daughter)?”

It’s been my experience that Carol uses the kids to initiate the phone calls so she can jump in later. So I answer:

“Do YOU want to talk to her or does you mom?”

“Um. . . . My mom wants to talk to her.”

“(Daughter) is not going to church today and I’m not putting her on the phone because I won’t have her threatened with punishment. I will talk to you guys later, ok?”


I hang up. The phone rings again almost immediately. I don’t answer it.

About an hour later Carol shows up to my door:

Me: What.

Carol: I’m here to get (daughter). She told the pastor she’s going to church today.

Me: That’s not her decision to make, it’s mine and I say no.

Carol: Well I’ll fix that!

Then she sped away on her broom. Can you imagine that? “Well I’ll fix that!” Sounds like a line from a comic book super villian. So we’ll see what she means by “fix that”, whether it means she’s going to defy the court again, try to manipulate the legal system, or if she sics her convict husband on me. That wouldn’t be very smart because he just got out of prison a few months ago.

Sorry to bore you guys but I wanted to state this situation for the record. Such threats by my ex are normally followed shortly by false accusations or some other bullshit.

    UNLV, I’m only flying into Phoenix, then we are driving down to Mexico so I won’t actually be able to hang out. When we hit Phoenix again the following weekend, it’s to catch the red eye out of there. If we come back Friday instead of Saturday, I can let you know.

    This is NOT boring. It is good juicy ex-wife stuff and I want to hear more of it.

  5. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Rack that red-eye is a brutal flight….

    I’m suprised she never said, “I do what I wan! I do what I wan!”. Next thing you know, she’ll be on Jerry Springer or Jenny Jones or something.

    I don’t know what is so hard about this concept for her, it is so ancient and Old Testament. (As in fall of Jerusalem to Shishak Old Testament). The army is at the gates. You can either surrender, and pay some tribute but come out bruised and Ok, or you can force them to siege you. If you do that, when they DO take the city, they sack it, rape all the women (even the ugly ones, every soldier does his duty) and sell all the men into slavery.

    She opted for sacking and rape. She chose poorly.

    Watching people trying to cross burned bridges is fun!

  8. Nice Rack says:

    I’m cool with the red eye, that just means I get back early enough on Sunday to sleep all day long and recover from my week long drinking binge. If my mom wasn’t going out there too, I would try to find a way to meet up with you.

  9. mexi says:

    Post a pic of your mom!!!

  10. Nice Rack says:

    No way! Mom’s are sacred territory. You post one of your mom.

  11. mexi says:

    You’ve already seen my mom when she came to Leroy’s.

  12. L says:

    i want to hang out with you.

  13. Phelps says:

    C’mon, we’ve all seen Rae’s mom. Are you hiding your mom because Rae’s mom is hotter?
