…better left unsaid.
Today’s Daily Prompt: What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?
Let’s just say that my brother and I believe in keeping the other one safe. That and my boss at the time was the one who encouraged and enabled me to do what I did. It involved a ‘minor white lie’ that my parents still don’t know to this day. If they did, my traveling days would be finished and I’d be like Rapunzel – on the inside looking out.
When I went to New York City for an adventurous weekend, of course my family wanted to know who I was meeting up with. I told them, two friends I had known during college. Didn’t say we ever took a class together….or that we were even in the same state – emailing, chat groups, etc was how we three met, and had planned ‘corner state trips’ to include Washington and California, but alas, life had other plans. My boss knew; my brother knew. I knew (in my gut) these two could be trusted for a weekend of exploration and adventure. They have since gotten married (smile).
