False Alarm

Turns out the stepgranddaughter's toxic boy friend is not nearly as dangerous as advertized.
I have not listened to gossip in so long i failed to recognize it.
Stepmother said something to her younger sister,
Younger sister said something to he mother (Dianne)
Dianne said something to me.
My ear heard what she said and my mind processed it.
Each step in the communication process produced some distortion.
The most dangerous path for a communique is the path between my ear and my brain.

Boyfriend is certainly not benign,  What male is to parents of a teenaged woman?
Stepgranddaughter is in boot camp now and maturing hour by hour.
Now all i worry about is terrorist attacks or drowning at sea.
Much, much preferable to worrying about boy friends
