I don't buy tabloids or gossip magazines and I don't go to the gossiping fence and talk about my neighbors. I don't volunteer information about one friend to another. It's not my place.
When asked, I will tell you just about anything about myself, but if you ask me about one of my friends I will not. It's not my place.
If someone asks me for personal info about one of my friends, I will not allow that can of worms to open. It's not my place.
I am not obligated to tell anyone anything about anybody. If I choose to tell someone about me, then it's my choice and not because I have to - but because I want to. This is my place.
