There were incidents and accidents
There were hints and allegations

Having a nice time with my mom. She is here until Wednesday.

Today, a rumor got back to me.

It isn't true.

I should know, since I am the subject of said rumor.

Nevertheless, as much as you want to shake something like that off and ignore it, it is hard to do.

What disappoints me is that somebody, likely somebody I know, is making things up.

What disappoints me further is that people I considered friends are discussing it further and debating the merits of its truth or falsity, without, of course, bothering to ask me.

Except the one who told me.

And of course, the one who told me didn't even have to ask, because she knew it wasn't true.
