"How'd you know?" I asked, puzzled.
"Oh, everyone knows." She waved it off with her hand.
"What are you talking about?"
"He told everyone."
"Everyone?" I repeated.
"Oh yeah. We've all known for a while. Seriously, EVERYONE knows. Like, ev-ery-one." She said it slowly to emphasize how far the gossip had spread.
Really? He had to tell ALL of our friends about it? What the fuck? Did I miss the press conference? Did I also miss the mass text? I guess I missed the skywriter too. I'd understand if he mentioned it to one or two close friends because that's normal, but did he really have to tell ALL OF OUR FRIENDS? Ew!
"Well, what'd he say?" I was starting to get pissed off.
"He told us everything."
"Who's 'us'?" I listened as she rattled off a string of names. After about ten, I cut her off telling her that I'd heard enough.
Okay, now I was officially pissed. I felt my face get hot with anger. What a blabbermouth! Last time I checked, we are all adults here. I didn't realize by kicking it with a guy on a whim I'd set off a gossip chain that would wind itself around the city. What kind of guy does that? Is it just me or is that weird? Grrrrrrr.
