David Eddie (whose daddy memoir I read years ago when I was myself a wandering, dishevelled stay-home dad) is writing an advice column in the Globe. Here he counsels a nympho publisher on her illicit affair with an aspiring author. Let the gossipy speculation begin. Just don’t post any of it here.
Then, after one boozy business dinner, he wound up back at my apartment. The sex was great and I want our personal relationship to continue. But after revisiting his pitch the other day, I decided to pass on his proposal.
Now he’s threatening to tell my boss about our affair, and claims that I led him on. Is there any way to smooth things over personally and retain my professional credibility?
