What’s His Name?

Well we had some interesting news in the last little bit. The Ex and his girl friend, now fiancee got engaged. T at least received a text after he asked. I learned about it on Facebook.
T cannot understand why I am upset. I tried to explain to him about the lack of respect I feel given the fact that the divorce still has not been finalized. Am sure that it is before the judge now and should have it completed within the next couple of months. Finally I came up with an analogy that I thought would help to explain it.
Me: It would be like if I went to Vegas, got married and never told anyone. Just brought him home.
T: What’s his name?
Me: Whose name?
T: Do you have something to tell me mom?
Me: What?
T: Did you at least have fun in Vegas?
Me: What?
T: Did you gamble away all your life savings mom?
Me: NO I did not!!!
T: So you had no fun in Vegas and married some dude. And you still haven’t told me his name.
Me: What are you talking about?
T laughing: Mom it’s a fantasy play along!!
I died he was being such a booger. Laughed so so hard.
Then yesterday we had another of those is it a blonde moment or the boy brain in action moment.
I was a little annoyed that T had not unloaded the clean dishes from the dishwasher and put the dirty ones in there. I may have snapped that it was not fair for me to come home after working all day to have to do all this extra work at home as well. It is not like I am asking him to do anything unusual. This is a chore that he has to do.
After I came back from taking the garbage out I ignored the dishwasher and change to do my workout. T came out of his room and unloaded the dishwasher and put the dirty ones in. Rolled it back over to its spot and went back to play his video game. I finished my workout and went over to begin dinner. In the sink was some coffee mugs, glasses and cutlery. I was a little confused.
Me: Why didn’t you put the rest of the stuff in the dishwasher?
T: What do you mean? I put the dishes in the dishwasher.
Me: What is this than?
T: Not dishes.
Boy brain?🤔🤔 Blonde moment?🤔🤔 Boy brain combined with a blonde moment? 😬😬😬
Oh no not that please. 🤪🤪🤪🤪

    1. Thank you so much. I finally mentioned to ex yesterday when he picked T up. He could not understand why I mentioned it. Said to a friend later it would be nice if he thought of others. But oh well. Soon not my issue lol
