D is for Divorce

Soon enough I will have had three of them. This time there is no dreading the end instead I would be looking forward to it. It will be the end of something that never should have been in the first place. I knew it was a mistake before I entered the marriage but being stubborn I did it anyway. One day I'll learn my lesson.

This is the last marriage that I will have. Dissolving the ties to this man will make me happier than I have been in years. There are endings and then there are stepping stones. This will end something that was horrible from the start and become a stepping stone to the future.

We have already been separated long enough that I can file in a number of states the problem is that residency had to be established and I had to start the time over. The stress that was a constant is starting to decrease to a manageable level.

Divorcing allows me the freedom to begin doing the things that I have not done in years. Simple things like enjoying myself without worry of being interrupted or annoyed by stupidity or drunken outburst.

I am aware that this post is rather short but it does not require expanding as that would cause it to wander off into odd directions. Hope you are enjoying April and the A to Z challenge.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
