[marked “friends who are not Othello”]
Cinderella called me last night; Zelda is getting married and moving to Tennessee with her new beau. I believe that the expected nuptial date is end of March or beginning of April.
Othello will be, Cinderella was told, given the option to move to Tennessee or Medford, and will be finishing out his school year living in the house he is in now. Alone for several months.
No court battle is needed for this one; if he is left alone, I’ll just drive up and get him. No matter how you slice it up, that would be abandonment or neglect; 16 year olds are not suitable for living alone.
I find I am not getting to wrought up, here. Nothing is called for from me but to be available for the kids, and Zelda has never, ever made a plan that didn’t change by the end of the week. ‘Sides, I’m not certain she’s divorced yet. [shrugs] One crisis at a time.
