Oh God, I feel so bad right now. I was just listening to my, uh, radio, because you all know I'm a typical artist/creative gal, and I think a certain degree of voyeurism goes along with that, so here I am listening for diversion, or entertainment, or a glimpse of reality, I don't know, and I hear this man, in such a distressed emotional tone, telling his ex that he's so upset she won't let him see his son. He said, "How can you do this to me? After everything I've done for you, you turn around and then won't let me see my son?" I couldn't hear her response, but then he said, in this panicked, upset voice, "No! No! I have to talk to you now!...because I like to sleep with my son, I like to give him a bath..." and then it cut off. It's just that he sounded so pained, and plaintive, he sounded so genuine, and desperate. I felt so sorry for him.

Being a single Mom with an ex who could basically care less about those kinds of things, I was just kind of thrown and moved to hear this from the other side. Then I felt shitty about listening to his pain, and I imagined her being a kind of gorgeous, cold-hearted, LA, man-eating kind of gal, who would use their child to get more and more money from her ex. I've met people like this, this is the uglier other side of the coin. Maybe I'm just projecting, who knows what he may have done to her, or their son, but he really sounded so desperate to be able to be with and love his son. Poor poor people. What a sad world some of us are creating.

Okay well, I'm putting up some more cat pictures, be back in a few minutes.

Love you guys,
