When ASS met Medusa
I recently learned that ASS met Medusa for lunch. DH kinda hid that info from me, but it clearly got the best of him because the other night I went out to dinner with a friend and when I got home, DH pulled me into his office, told me to shut the door and then told me that he called ASS that morning to get some more details. Turns out...
They actually met twice - each time she drove from MedusaTown to ASSCollegeTown, about a two hour trip. First time they met for lunch. ASS told DH that that visit went "okay" so when she texted him about coming to ASSCollegeTown for dinner, he said okay.
They met for dinner. She began to ask ASS what he remembered about when she and DH were married. ASS told her that he remembered DH being "really cool" and then when DH left, he remembered her teaching the kids that DH was the bad guy.
That devolved into a conversation wherein ASS told her that she was the one who handled things incorrectly, that now that he is older he has figured out that she was the one who "got what she deserved" when it came to the end of the marriage and the removal of her kids.
At that point, she "got very defensive and started reinventing history." They decided to call it a night and she drove him back to his apartment. A few hours later, she texted ASS and told him that he was "just a kid" and the way that he remembered events was not the way they happened. That it was clear to her now that "Dad and that bitch" have brainwashed them and she didn't even know why she bothered.
ASS originally was going to ignore her, but he IS her child and so he replied. Told her that "dad and WOB made sure we had everything" they needed to grow up and succeed and then ripped her a new one for abandoning them and missing all the the birthdays, Christmases and other milestones.
Her response? "you are verbally harassing me. If you don't stop, I will file a police report."
His response? "go ahead. And f*ck off while you're at it."
Two observations - first, he really is her child :-) Second, now that she knows where he lives, I predict some flat tires in her future. That's what she did to me.
And that's what happened when ASS met Medusa 7 and a half years after she ditched him...
