A Book of Tales Like No Other

I'm writing a book.
And it is NOT on organizing.

The working title is:
"Tales, Trials & Turmoil of Divorcing a Nimrod"

Simply documenting the experiences over the past 5 years. None of the stories are made up. These are actual events that unfolded. Many of them are frankly embarassing that they even occured. Some are infuriating and upalling. The fact of the matter, they happened.

A few of the potential chapter titles:
The Fax Machine
The Popcorn Incident
My List
Driveway Chicken
Cookie Dough and the 16 Page Document
Yeah, I've Got Three Holes
“Co-parenting” … Ha!
The Drop-n-Flop
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
An Overpaid Nanny
Make-up Parenting Time
A Few Dollars More
Exotic Vacations

At first, my ex-husband's actions got the best of me. Now, I'm pretty much just sitting back kinda watching the train wreck unfold before my eyes. Reaching in my box of popcorn, sipping on my Coke waiting for the next chapter to unfold.
... and takin' notes along the way because Hollywood just can't come up with this stuff.

Oh, thinkin' I might like Jennifer Aniston to play me, perhaps, Christopher Walken to play him.

Open to all of your suggestions for book title, chapters and other ideas.

What story should you tell?
