Not quite ready for Valentine's Day

Overheard. Father to young son:

"Your mom went out for her birthday. With one of her boyfriends. Not that she's bothered to divorce me yet."

Poor guy. Poor son. Think he needs this?

Interesting what one over hears sometimes--and files away to fill out a character later in time.

Joanne said...

Sounds like someone needs a love goddess ...

Jean Spitzer said...

Poor kid, indeed.

Desiree said...

Good grief!!! How old was said son?

(WV uncess-- the opposite of
success)

Margaret said...

Said son was maybe 5 or 6.

Ouch!! That's a great link too, Margaret. Happy Valentine's Day in advance. A good day for eating dessert.

Oh my.. that poor child... really?.. 5 or 6?

altadenahiker said...

Yeah, that's right, put it on the strong broad shoulders of a 5 year old.

An awful thing to say to a kid. I'm sorry the man is grieving, but jeez. Joanne's right, someone needs a love goddess and I think it might be a 6-year-old boy.

Awful, awful...

I just noticed that a couple of those hearts are drowning in the pool of water...Hmmm...Symbolic??

Susan Campisi said...

That's so sad. Definitely a broken heart that needs some healing - and perspective.

On a happier note, what a great video! I've heard the song a million times but how fun to see the band performing it. Groovy, man.

Haha. Nice surprise with the link to the song I haven't heard in ages. I'm smiling...

And pretty cruel thing for father to say to son. Shame. Not smiling.

Daisy said...

Wow! father has problems. I can see why his wife went out with someone else!

Happy Valentine Day all ... :-) May you be smothered in non-fattening chocolate.

Barbara and Daisy
