Scenes from a Marriage: Secrets

Out with friends circa 2001...

Nate: You know, Emily does (something embarrassing, I can't remember what because I do plenty of embarrassing things--I'm sure Nate will fill this part in).

Emily: Oh my gosh, I can't believe you just said that! It's a total secret!

Husband friend: That's ok, you know our secret about trying to get pregnant.

Emily: Oh...no, I, uh, didn't know about that.

Husband friend: We told Nate...you didn't tell her?

Nate: Well, no. You said to keep it a secret.

Emily: So, you'll keep secrets for your friends from your wife, but you won't keep secrets for me?

hahahahah, isn't that so true! I don't know if it's because he grew up with so many brothers, but Damond will talk about ANYTHING! I am still trying to TRAIN him in this skill :D

Where do you come up with these things?
Does this scene just pop in your head randomly? Then you write it on your blog?
Amazing.
I'm usually the one to divulge the secrets.
I don't realize until after the party that I wasn't supposed to say that certain thing.
Anyway, at least I stopped myself from saying it here.
(but who really cares that he uses sunless tanner on his face?)

I'm afraid I've spent so much time at the computer the past few weeks that anything that pops into my head that doesn't have to do with grading usually morphs into a post :)

I wouldn't post what I told him on the internet.

Even I have my boundaries.
