My wife left me. That's what she wrote to me in a text, but I think I have more. She also said that she would write on the divorce application at the notary's office that the reason was character incompatibility. I guess. I didn't have enough character left on the card I gave her for her birthday. Or maybe I'd gone over that 500 character per text limit too many times. All I know is that as time passes, I like those people who stick around. Or at least that's what it says on her Facebook cover these days. She must have got bored.
