May need more than a fresh mani/pedi to get me through latest marital crisis. Just before he left, George told me that someone called ‘Taylor’ from the office would be accompanying him on this trip. Naturally, I assumed that Taylor was a man, but when I happened to call George’s office about his travel itinerary this morning, I discovered that Taylor is in fact a twenty-nine year-old WOMAN. Turns out, your tip about gender-neutral names was right on the money.

I am currently leaning towards painful castration, but suspect my hormones may be messing with my judgment. I considered sending all the cherubs to him IMMEDIATELY, but then realized they may get an education for which they are not yet prepared. Any advice before I choose to exercise my second amendment rights?

I’ll be right over. Please resist the urge to do or say anything you might regret in the meantime. I’m sure there must be some innocent explanation, even if I can’t for the life of me think of one right now.

Just left a message for George at the lodge where he and Taylor are staying, saying there’s been a family emergency. Didn’t specify what. Thanks for coming over. Don’t know what I would do without you, esp. now that I appear to be on the brink of becoming a single parent for real.
