My first V-Day after divorce

There’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ time to get divorced, but my timing was especially lame: My ex-husband and I separated a week before Thanksgiving. As in Happy Thanksgiving, my marriage is over! Can you please pass the cranberry sauce? That was followed by a month of Christmas carols playing everywhere I went. Somehow, the songs all seemed to taunt me, and previously innocent lyrics took on a new, ominous meaning—“He’ll say, ‘Are you married?’ We’ll say, ‘No, man!’”
