One of My Ex's

No, none were from TX. We'd had a major argument over the phone. Something about he didn't feel the need to call and let me know he'd be several hours late. I was pretty steamed and decided to show him! I called a girl friend, hired a sitter, got all "gussied," and before leaving I opened the Yellow Pages to Attorneys, underlined several names and left it by the phone. He got home before I did and when I walked in the Yellow Pages had been torn into thousands of pieces, strewn all over the living room and there he sat red faced and fuming. Better the Yellow Pages than There were several more similar scenarios and after seven years the marriage ended.
