There have been a number of times this summer when, for obvious reasons (ie biting flies) I have been reminded of the quote of Anita Roddick: “If you think you’re too small to have an impact; try going to bed with a mosquito.”
Divorce however is not like the minor irritation of a mosquito bite (malaria carrying insects excepted).
The biggest thing I have ever been bitten by was a pony. Divorce is not like a pony bite either.
No, divorce is where you are bitten by really big teeth (a crocodile, a lion or a shark – take your pick) and then spat out in pieces that fortunately can be sewn up and healed, although there will be scars that can remain forever.
