Still Together

Someone once told me that one doesn't have to stay married forever, but once you're divorced, you're divorced forever. I didn't get it then. But I do now.

And I want to ask him if he'll take the dogs while I'm out of town next week (yes, I still have a compulsion to get out of L.A. despite my current romance.) And then there's the fact that his Direct TV account has mistakenly got my mailing address instead of his.
Barely a week goes by, and there's something I have to talk to him about. And then I get irritated, because I hate the sound of his voice so I email him to avoid actually talking to him. But he doesn't get back to me. So I email him again.
