Secrets and Houses


How are you at keeping secrets?
 
The reason that I ask is that I was told a secret today and made to promise not to put it on facebook. There was no mention about whether I could or should put it on this blog, so I think that legally I am covered. The morality of telling the secret in a blog is a little more in question.

On the one hand, there was nothing specifically said about spreading the news in ways other than facebook. Meanwhile, on the other hand, I am pretty sure that it was implied that I should keep my big mouth shut. This is quite a quandary for me. What to do? What to do?

You know the person that told me the secret knows how I am with secrets. Don’t get me wrong, I can keep a secret probably better than anyone else can. Well, I can if I think the secret is really worthy of being a secret. Whether or not Judy dyes her hair isn’t a secret, it is more of a general knowledge kind of thing. The allies having a working Enigma machine was a secret worth keeping. All other examples between those two could go either way with me, depending on the day.
 

I decided to make a gingerbread house that looks like our house this year. I made a huge batch of dough and spent quite a while making a replica out of paper. The trouble with making a replica of anything is that in order to get all of the details in so that it is recognizable, it needs to be big…ish. I looked at the model and then looked about the house and discovered that there isn’t really any place large enough for the house. Hmmmm….

Sometimes, a problem will solve itself if you just give it time. I let the afternoon slip by and then helped with making supper. In all of that time I managed not to think of the gingerbread house at all. While I was cleaning up the dishes, I started to think about what I might have for desert. There really isn’t anything in the house…except the dough for a gingerbread house. Gingerbread house dough is the same stuff that gingerbread cookies are made of, and the cookies will only take ten to twelve minutes to bake.

I’ve come to a decision, tomorrow morning, Louise and I will go down to Ikea for the $1 breakfast and on the way out we will buy a gingerbread house kit for $5. Maybe we will get two. I came to that decision while drinking a cup of tea and eating a gingerbread cookie…or two.
 

 مرحبا.
أنا فقط أريد أن أقول لك الخبر السار، يا صديقي وزوجته إنجاب طفل في المستقبل القريب نسبيا.

يبدو أن الجميع متحمس جدا حول هذا الموضوع. حتى أنا مزورة الإثارة.
