So, P and I heard this rumor. From a reliable source. Who sounded sooo surprised that we hadn't heard it.

And then I told Someone. Well, I didn't really tell, I went the, "Have you heard...?" route. Someone hadn't.

A few days later P and I went to dinner with some Friends. P asked, "Have you heard...?"
They hadn't.

P and I were discussing potential consequences of said rumor last night. I said, "it's just a rumor, probably nothing is going to change." I was feeling bad, we we're telling others, when it was really pure gossip. Plus it didn't sound like it was as widespread as I'd thought.

Trying to be supportive he recounted how at church the rumor was mentioned by Neighbor 1, and then Neighbor 2 agreed and had further details. Neighbor 3 denied the truthfulness of this particular gem. So there see, darling wife, you are not the only one.

Um, P? Neighbor 1 is husband of Someone. Neighbor 1 is helping Neighbor 2 with some remodeling. Neighbor 3 works with Friend. Pretty sure I/we are the source we are using to confirm our own gossip.

I think I am going to go back to not talking to anyone.
