The Angry Old Woman is always talking about her first husband and how horrible he and his mother were. I had some kind of notion that she had been married to him for 15 or 20 years and had all her kids with him, then they divorced and she was single for a time before she met her current husband. I had the idea that she and her current husband had been married ten years or so.
She’s been married to her current husband for FORTY-TWO years. She had two sons in quick succession with the first husband and they were divorced after being married for four years. She had her other two kids with the second husband.
This means she’s been holding on to the hate and anger for FOUR DECADES.
Even I think it’s time to let that go!
