“Your girl, Angelina, is a dumb bitch. Still think she’s a Spartan now that she’s getting divorced,” was the taunting phone call I got from a girl I used to know. I responded, “What about this situation makes her dumb and how does filing for a divorce and leaving an unhealthy situation as opposed to suffering in it, lessens her strength of character?” She paused for a long ass time, and like most people who don’t really have a case, just raw emotions, she deflected with, “She got what she deserved for stealing him from Jennifer.” …and this is what I deserve for not changing my number.
