I was teaching an exercise class a few years ago and a rumor popped up that a man coming to my class and I were having an affair. We weren’t. We barely said, “Good morning.” But he was losing weight and feeling better about himself and feeling more confident, and the gossip started.
I was 43 years old at the time.
Because of the rumors, I presume, he started going to another instructor’s class.
She was in her early 30’s.
I heard, “So now he’s going to a YOUNGER instructor! That’s even worse!”
