Seriously, can you?
I’m an excellent secret keeper….for the most part. And a strategic secret teller, telling only certain secrets to certain people.
With innocuous “secrets” I’ll only tell John, and he halfway tunes me out when I’m telling a story anyway so he can never retell the secret.
With deep dark n dirty secrets I take those to the grave. Partially because sometimes it’s a “damn girl, i don’t want anyone knowing that sh*t about you” situation and partially because it’s deep dark n dirty and those secrets are usually prefaced with “don’t tell anybody but…” Then I’m trapped and can’t say anything.
If the secret is my own, like I have a surprise for someone…. I can keep it for a bit then I explode. Poor John will never have a surprise bday party because of this. #fail I hope I do better when I have kids so I can surprise them with trips to Disney or something. I surprised my lil bro with a trip once, and that’s because he was all the way in Florida and I just refused to call him all summer so I wouldn’t crack.
Anywaaaay, a story for you.
I’m on the train today…and there are two girls that look like they’re on their way to school. I’d say they’re 15ish. One is talking to the other in a hushed tone but very animated. I couldn’t help but sneak peeks at them. It reminded me of being in HS with my besties talking smack and telling each other stories about other people that we weren’t supposed to even know lol. The other girl was listening and nodding and every now and then her eyes would get HUGE at whatever juiciness her friend was describing.
After a lil while the storyteller stopped speaking and leaned back in her chair with a face that was like “can you believe it?!” The listener girl looked at her friend with a disturbed face and started shaking her head and says “No, you shouldn’t have told me that. That’s a nasty secret.”
I just put my head down to hold my giggles…but for the life of me I wanted to be like “hey, tell me tell me! I wanna know…I wont tell anyone I swear!” (I’m nosy)
I love my A train in the mornings.
