I had a chat on the phone with my friend Mr Seagull the other night. I can’t quite understand how he manages to stay so upbeat in the face of his future ex-wife’s efforts to crush him utterly+. When I was going through similar (but considerably less severe) circumstances, I was like Eeyore on downers. In the rain.
Poor bastard. At the rate his account is haemorrhaging money, his bank manager must be feeling very ill indeed. I suspect the final divorce settlement will be over who gets custody of the pot to piss in, because there won’t be anything else left.
Still, although I’m pretty sure that being roughly shafted without lubrication is a decidedly unpleasant experience, if you consider that it’s the most “action” he’s had (albeit metaphorically) in over a year, it might explain his buoyant demeanour.
