Mistaken Identity


You made a mistake.  You married the wrong person, that’s all.  It was an accident, an unintended error. A simple mistake.

You married the person who was financially stable, a good provider, calm in times of crisis, dependable and solid.  You didn’t quite realize at the time that “solid” meant sitting around nights watching the carpet age.  That a a hot date with “dependable” was going over last year’s tax return.  That going to sporting events with “calm in times of crisis” meant a complete lack of emotion in the face of game-saving field goals.

What to do now?  Like with any mistake, there must be a way to rectify it.   You need a redo. You need the Undo command. Ctrl-Z in the world of Microsoft Windows.

But that’s where you make your second mistake.  You share this plan with the person you married.  “How about a tiny divorce,” you say.  “A micro separation.  You see, I just realized I married the wrong person.”

You pay for that comment.  The Silent Treatment for three days – three days!  Then, the person you married moves out, taking their Quick Books and tax return files with them.

Oh, well.  Plenty more fish in the sea.
