Red Writing Hood: An Ex-Husband's Lament





Prompt: Let’s lighten it up around here. And when I say lighten, I mean REALLY lighten. This week’s assignment will require the fewest number of words ever: we want you to write a story – your choice of topic – as a tweet. That’s right. One hundred and forty characters. Not words. Characters. Make us laugh. Make us think. Make us want more. Mostly, have FUN with this. You’ve earned it.Come back Friday and link up.


Love. A gorgeous wedding.Two kids & a Labrador later, a divorce. So Sad. Due to prenup loophole; she took everything BUT the mistress.

  5. This ranks up there, along with Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," to be told and sung repeatedly whenever the husband is being a jerk.
