Experience is a hard teacher...

...because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.

Uh oh...what happened...
Clever observation or descriptive quote...?

Not really, I lifted it off somebody's tag line on a forum. It's been almost a year- Christmas day- since I found out my soon to be ex-wife was leaving me because she had been having an affair with a close friend of mine for sometime before. They still don't get why I am angry.
I suppose that was a test we all failed. What to take away from the bloody mess I am not sure.

Well…that certainly is a bloody mess. I am so very sorry that happened to you.
I suppose this is a time when I could spout out some don’t-focus-on-closed-doors-but-look-at-the-open-ones advice…but that never does any good in the times that you really just want to smash someone’s head into the pavement.
This must be a very difficult time for you, although I imagine you’ve learned something about your own resilience, as life is still beautiful to you…at times. ;).
You’re strong.
Sigh…I wish character wasn’t so costly.

Merry Christmas Adam. All the best to you and your son.
You deserve a wonderful new year. :)
