You should totally feed this rumor. Say "yeah, that's me." and seem really mysterious and they'll whisper it around and pretty soon you'll be an ogre killer of violent porportions. That would be cool!
BTW, I will smack any horse that swings his butt into me. Pronto.
Oh, this reminds me of a story. Wierd one, too.
When I was a teen I was curious to see what a cat's tail looked like under all that hair. So, foolish me, I took some scissors and cut off all the hair on the last inch of my cat's tail (poor sweet Ladybug!), I did not hurt her at all, just cropped it short.
So, at the bus stop, Ladybug came wondering out and the other kids were shocked at her wierd looking tail. I was so embarassed about my stupid behavior, but couldn't undo it.
So, word got around school of what I had done and the next day I was approached by some girl I hardly knew who said, "are you the kid who cut off her cat's tail?" See where a rumor can go!
