It's just sad
I went to see a friend last night. It was his birthday, and he went through a divorce this last year, so I made an effort to go. He just moved into a new place and he had his kids over there for the first time. I hadn't seen them since before my own divorce. Anyway, I could tell my buddy was an emotional wreck and he started drinking. By the time we were grilling he was having trouble walking a straight line, and he actually went down once in the kitchen. That was depressing enough, but then I was sitting and talking to the kids, and they loved my ex, so they started asking, "Where's Ms. Katie?" and that about put me over the edge. It was a really sad night.
