“But she always wheedles it out of me.”
well, Earl, you’d better keep trying or else Opal’ll find out
One of the things about growing up is figuring out that secrets aren’t worth it. Except around birthday and Christmas, of course. Their main effect is to increase anxiety and decrease helpful communication.
The hardest thing to keep secret is about a spouse’s upcoming surprise party. And the most fun when you can actually pull it off.
The best kept secrete is the one that no one knows you’re keeping.
Like the one where I … OH DARN, now you know I’m keeping a secrete.
Talk in your sleep, Earl?
He’s probably had a secret or two…just never been able to keep them…
Yep …. Opal is part “Bloodhound” ! She will track Earl down !
One more day without the puppy Roscoe . Sad
You can’t keep ANYTHING from women…….. They know EVERYTHING – Trust me.
What they really need is a dynamic pet…something like a TURTLE! Remember, I raced Bugs Bunny to Grant’s Tomb (and won when he was arrested for speeding)!
Opal has clairvoyant powers, she always seems to know when I’m contemplating….
I keep secrets just by waiting for a chance to tell.
The best way to not tell secrets.. is to not have any.
Ever since I met my wife I have had an unexplained urge to tell her everything I know whether I want to or not. She doesn’t even ask for the info. It made for some awkward early dating conversations.
best-est evah Benji’s PoorRichard quip.. “three may keep a secret, iff two of them are dead” where iff stands for If and only If)
There was also the song in 2008 that had the line “ two can keep a secret if one of them is dead”.
Don’t ask, Don’t tell.
