..sometimes, in my conversation with my children, their handphone would ring, I would query with my eye, they would cup the phone and simply say, 'Your ex,' meaning their mother....and I would be a little bit nonplus at their nonchalance..I never thought of her that way..definitely I did not go around referring to her as my ex...somehow it does not sound right..
'..what do you tell mama when I called..?'
'..your ex,' was the reply, straight-faced..
..sometimes I wished my children would called a spade, a spoon..
