Classic XO Jane humble-bragging (see also: “Stop Skinny-Shaming Me!” and “I Used My Sexuality to Get Ahead at Work”). Also in this piece:
According to Ken, the Wilmington High School class of 1981 hates me because I was married to the lead singer of a relatively successful indie rock band (who I can’t even believe those idiots have heard of since his name is not Bob Seger) AND, apparently, they believe my ex-husband’s band wasn’t really good enough to make it on their own and the only reason the band had any success was that I am a witch who supposedly used “black magic” to make them popular. Yup, insert deafening record scratch here!
Maybe they hate you because you call them idiots. Maybe they hate you because you are a braggart. I might hate you, and this is the only thing I know about you, four years in class w/ you would have been too much.
