Not four days after I wrote my post about Dooce.com, I received a phone call from my sister-in-law. There was an air of urgency about her voice. "Heather Armstrong is getting a divorce," she told me. A few clicks of the mouse later and the news was confirmed... well, sort of. Heather and her husband Jon are currently in the middle of a separation. She made no mention of divorce--nor did he--but things do not sound good.
And I know it's silly to feel this way about someone you've never actually met, but I'm sad for them.
I guess maybe we might still be BFFs after all.
