:: SMS from Kevin07?: Advice by Text Msg

Your partner in life is having an affair. Your children ignore you. The last time you went to a parents' evening, your son's teacher had difficulty remembering who he was. Your friends have discovered that misery can be catching and avoid your company. Your cat looks at you with undisguised contempt.

Humours gr8 bt NOT whn shes undrssing!!"...
