I tend to favor imagery and picture strength sometimes coming to us like a fishing pole. So in my mind, I am standing at the lake where I work down the hill, struggling with all my might to reel more string-strength-in, but it keeps getting caught.
Perv got his wish and I let the every-other-weekend crap begin for visiting DD. Silly me thought it was the easiest way to stave off some drama.
Well, as is a popular ala cart item on the D Menu, he is not holding his end of the stick on that either! He is trying to interpret the rules rather than just do them...it's mentally exhausting.
It's not surprising anymore, though, and I'm getting the hang of things, but not backing down, either.
So since we are at half-way day through the week, I got a message about the weekend coming. Note: it's "My turn". He was talking about a weekly event that his family has and it's one of the promises he broke to DD that is having consequences come into effect now. He asked what my thoughts are on the occasion.
When I am past the text-o-rama drama, and not so mad, I find myself snickering at his expense lately. I told him that it's my turn and I miss DD and would like to spend my turn with her as we are supposed to. I gave a few hours of it already for an event.
Mind you, I was not rude, I used no exclamation points or anything!
So my phone started it's beeping and he informed me that it would be easier for everyone if "I would not assume he was asking for more time again!!!!???? Well, why would he write about a weekend day if he wasn't, esp. when it's not his turn?
I was dumb and wrote back-only once, caught off guard as they do to us- and said "I wasn't assuming, I was annoyed." So that got back, bing bing bing on my phone some more, that I have not answered this time. Sigh.
It occurs to me that OW must be out washing her cat or buying a new witches hat or finding another pointy fence to sit on...strange to be getting pointless messages when it's not DD visiting day.
I believe I'm being baited and I won't pick up that phone? I won't, I won't I won't!!!!!
Is there a yellow face emoticon for a scream on SI? I would use it if there was.
For some reason I feel like this petty sh is something he'll tell his L and I'm trying to just go on with the night, la-di-da. Don't reply, don't reply, don't reply...I tell myself.
And see, I was doing really well with NC this week-had been several days of only answering if need be and only DD related or house/money. He also knows I've been getting busier as my summer job started and summer class.
I spent two years reading about narcissism, but to actually be a receiver of it at its height and meanness is an amazing thing. It's almost like a talent, like the blame shifting, or an art form.
