6 rumor has it

it's hard to quell a rumor. it gets going and takes on a life of its own and before you know it, the damn thing's taken a seat upon the throne of popular belief.

i've mentioned my husband. i've mentioned that he's not actually my husband. i've mentioned that i've mentioned that he's not actually my husband and that i'm single and living in chicago and that the man popularly believed to be my husband is living in memphis and a good 40-50 years older. i've mentioned all of these things repeatedly. for years.

and then there it was. in an email. "godspeed to you and james."

I still think you should have told that woman that you & James are separated. That'll learn her!

Look, let's just face it. You two are destined to be together. The age and fashion gaps aside, it's cosmic kismet. Don't fight it any longer, you will only torture yourself.

Clark is right, darling. and really, it wouldn't be that creepy of an age difference. You could be the calista flockhart to his harrison ford.
