By Amy Dickinson January 30, 2018Dear Amy: I got pregnant 37 years ago.
The father and I were in our 20s and engaged to be married, but he dumped me when I refused to have an abortion.
Clara never acknowledged that she was the source of the gossip.
Clara is a sanctimonious churchgoer and advertises herself to be a saintly senior citizen.
The desire to have an encounter without consequence is fairly common — I think that most people would admit to wanting this (or something like it) at some point in their lives.
