Secrets

I don't believe there should be secrets in marriage.

Except perhaps when Joe asks "what happened to the minivan?"

I promised the culprit I wouldn't rat her out.  It wasn't like she could have predicted that shopping cart would fly into her...er...THE minivan. 

But Joe feels differently.

Pop over and read full story in today's Chicago Parent.

  1. LMAO! You threw someone a going away party, before they knew they were 'going away?' That's hardcore Walshie.

    As always, your Chicago Parent posts, never fail to make me laugh and this was no exception. :)

    1. Thanks, Lily! I really am a disaster. But you knew that already.

  2. Oh no! I have a similar spot on my van from when a cart corral at the red bullseye dashed out at me. When informed that I had such spot I just shrugged my shoulders and gave my best "huh"

  3. Darn Chicago Parent was giving me hassles on submitting a comment! Anyway, what I wanted to say was, that article was hysterical. Darn your husband for having such a good memory of your antics.

    Secrets are hard to keep! Sometimes I'm so focused on not blabbing that I end up blabbing because the secret is constantly on my mind for fear of blabbing. Still, if I do get married, I better get me a husband that will share all the juicy gossip!

    1. Oh, Kianwi! I do the EXACT same thing! The more I try not to say something, the more involuntary the words become!

  4. Ha! If my hubby is breathing, he's talking, so I get to hear everything. Twice. Usually with quite a few embellishments....

  5. I hate when they can fire off a list like that! If I kept a list in my brain of all the crap he's done...

    It's usually my hubby that wants to hear the gossip from me.
    We used to have a neighbor that would blab anything and everything about anyone. I think that woman would talk to trees. We girls in the 'hood never told her anything.

    "Hardcore Walshie". LMAO!

    1. That Lily is funny!

      I ALWAYS have a list! Joe usually blanks (thereby giving me total arguing superiority). Leave it to him to pull something out of his arse this time out!

      Smart call on the neighbor.

  6. You should definitely keep the minivan thing a secret....just to show him that you can! ;)

  7. I thought I was the worst at keeping secrets. Thanks for making me feel better about my own blurting past.

  8. I keep secrets from all my husbands (one died). I never tell them how much I weigh. Both of my husbands and all my dogs have been previously trained. I don't tell my husbands which part of the training isn't working, because it might have been the deceased mother-in-law or a previous wife. However, I freely retrain our dog.

  9. You crack me up. You remind me so much of my husband sometimes...right down to the Christmas gifts in November. Classic!

  10. Ha! My friends say, "Are you going to write a Dollop about this?" :) Oh, and I get sooooooooooo annoyed when Tim doesn't spill the beans about what's going on with his friends. I NEED to know.

    1. I'm physically incapable of keeping a secret, so these men baffle me!
