The main distraction in our lives, since its inception, has been the cell phone.

Judgment

“What!” yelling Walter. “Where am I going to find that kind of money from?” “According to my documentation you earn over four thousand dollars a month. That is more than enough.

Lindsay was tempted to just leave Mr. Divine with the lawyer to figure out a plan of attack but she had to stop herself.

Lawyer on Board

That afternoon when Mr. Divine came home, he came with the lawyer who did our divorce.
