IN THIS EPISODE:

So, I finally make the trek out to the house that I want to rent and meet with the homeowner. This lady is one flaky gal. I talk about how I have compassion for her, because it's clear she's dealing with some tough life circumstances and has had some tragedies in her life. Yet she continues to badger me for more information about Alan. I did not tell her he was in prison, and just said that he was overseas. That was the explanation I thought would keep her from asking more, but instead she kept prodding me to provide his information, too. Later, that lie would snowball into something I just didn't feel comfortable continuing. And here the inkling that this could go wrong was starting to surface. I knew from experience the stigma and negative reaction I'd get from telling people that my fiance was in prison, so I tried to avoid it. I believed it had nothing to do with me and my responsibility as a renter. But in this case, I wasn't going to be able to just brush it off with this woman.
