“You need to talk to your son!” I figured something big must have happened because my ex only refers to our kid as my son under those circumstances.

“What’s he done now?” I asked

She proceeded to give me all the gory details of a heated exchange between the two of them. It did, in fact, sound terrible but I wasn’t there so I wasn’t going to take sides.

“Let me talk to him” I told her.

I hung up, and immediately called my son. “Hey, man. What’s going on?” I asked him.
