Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Puddleglum, why do you refer to your wife as "my significant other" instead of as "my wife"?
- Morwen in Madison

A: Dear Morwen,
Well, I was attempting to preserve what little shreds of anonymity I had left. I thought that by using ambiguous terms, I could throw off some of those who were not yet sure of my identity. As it is, I have been compromised, and Puddleglum must now say goodbye.
