Guess who reared her ugly head? Take a minute, go read this and come on back for the follow-up. I'll wait. (If this link doesn't work, can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?)
This woman actually sent my husband a long email today. We haven't heard a peep from her since he told her to call her at home. In her email she said she "doesn't have the courage" to do that. But she sure had the courage to write him and berate him.
I'm just flabbergasted. It's been 15 years...FIFTEEN and she's still holding a grudge about the way they broke up. Not only is she holding a grudge about that, she's mad that he tried to apologize! In her email she talked about being hurt that he sent her an apology as a part of his Lenten observation. She was so bitter about that that she made it sound as if he was taking part in some sort of 12 step process. There have been many times when I felt that his calling was more of an addiction, but really...it was just an apology. She has read so much into it.
Her letter states that if he really wants to make amends, he needs to call her and talk to her "in his own voice." Give me a frigging break! She just wants to have a chance to "hear" his voice. The sad thing is, this woman is married and has a really good career. She has an important job in the world of literature. If you google her, her name pops up over and over again. Someone has published a poem about her! She has a life...but now it seems, she wants mine.
I really despise people who try to play mental games. And that's what she's trying to do. I'm staying out of what my husband does about this. Really. I'm so mentally tired I can't add one more pebble to my load. But if push comes to shove, she's a tiny 5'0", 98 pounds-wet kind of girl looking at the face of a big red-neck Gretchen Wilson kind of girl. Do you remember Faith Hill's response to the fan who grabbed Tim McGraw's privates? That ain't nothing! Let me tell you!
