    Was it "exactly" a year, i.e. the one-year-contract was over? How unfortunate that the relationship didn't see the movie release and can't assist in the marketing. Will Tom now have to "date" a woman closer to his own age?

    Buggered ruggers? I’m not good with quirky thread titles but I think that’s an improvement? The problem with “boofhead” (and I read the above explanation) is that the reference is so niche that nobody gets it. The word is synonymous with “idiot”, which makes no sense… trust me, as someone who played both football and rugby on an amateur level for years, the players of the latter are generally far more intelligent!

    Insideeko isn’t a legit website. It’s a bot that scrubs info from elsewhere, including off of social media platforms, and dozens of times it’s declared ppl dead who are the victim of hoaxes.
