Foggy-Bottom Blues

I do love the fog. Woke up this morning to find visibility at about 1/8 of a mile. YIPPEE! My favorite fog is in the evening time, when it's so thick that you can barely see your hand in front of your face, and everything sounds as muffled as if it were wrapped in cotton.

I wish it were a season.

So, anyway, the Sperm Donor called last night. *sigh*
(For those of you who don't know, he's an X-Ray tech~~yeah, I put him through school before we split up, thanks a pant-load, jackass~~and he contracts out to various hospitals throughout the country. He's been in Ohio for the last 6 months.)
Evidently his contract is up this week, and he'll be 'blazing through OKLA' on his way to visit his new wife's kids. Don't get me wrong, I like New Wife. She's an okay gal, as far as that goes, even if she is considerably older than he. And has kids ranging in age from near 30 to 8 (and even a grandkid). No problemo, she's perfectly nice. PLUS she ensures that I get my teensy tinsy bit of child support~bless her pointed little head!
But she does have a disturbing tendency to forget that she's not the only parent with absentee children that need a-visitin'.
I sincerely hope that she doesn't make it necessary for me to remind her.

So Sperm Donor says he'll be in town possibly Saturday, but maybe not until Sunday...depends on how things go. He'd like to get the kids overnight.

Gee, do you mean one whole night? Are you quite certain that you can spare the time?
And get real, freak...don't act like you're going to be taking our son along on the overnight visit~you never do. Because in your very own words.."He's a handful to get around."

No shit, Sherlock? What was your first effing clue?
I do it every day. It's really not that big of a deal.
Is it really too much for me to ask that you take BOTH children (they ARE both yours, you know!) for a visit? Since it's only going to be overnight, anyway?
