A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All

The Golden Rule of Gossip


(Slyly turning my head both ways to make sure nobody will overhear.)

Can you keep a secret? Meet me In the Powder Room. My weekly column is all about gossip!

Just don’t tell anyone, okay?

See you over there!

    *Jumping up on my high horse* Awesome post. I can honestly say that I TRY not to gossip. Because I have seen the consequences AND been the brunt of many tall tales. But I still do sometimes. It’s human nature.

    That elf looks so ready to gossip.

      Ha! I know – what a creep! Thanks for noticing. Let’s not invite him to play in any of our Reindeer Games.

    I HONESTLY don’t care what others say about me. Truth. Fiction. Good. Bad. I don’t care. After years of being the “one” on everyone’s lips I simply return the favor and write about them and everything I know. Payback’s a bitch and I have a larger audience.
    Great post.

    That Elf looks like he’s got some juicy gossip, ok I’m hooked!
