Her divorce took a toll – took three years and cost an arm and leg – not to mention her soul.
She’s better. Her X told the Family Court Judge he could not afford spousal support. All those ski vacations at Vail and Squaw and monthly Olympic Club dues are expensive. Mr. Conspicuous Consumption – he never met a sale he didn’t like – got the the 48″ plasma TV – the Mini Cooper, the antiques, whatta steal…
The nefarious Judge – Swayback – of San Francisco’s Finest Family Court – predictably, her infamous blood-sugar dipped – (all know to approach her bench, carefully – close to 11:00 a.m.) She fell for his song and dance. Low Blood Sugar and High and Mighty Judge Marg raged at Janette – threatened and bellowed. “No Soup for you – No Spousal for you!” The thud from the gavel slamming down could be heard – in courtrooms up and down the hall. Get that judge a spoonful of sugar!
So, Janette moved into the dowdy, studio apartment in the Marina – with full intention of buying a condo near Portrero Hill – maybe. Then rents sky-rocketed affordable housing dried up and her stocks went to Hades…and finances are freaky. (Could be a bumper sticker.)
