My lovely, witty, and SMART friends, I have a question for you.
What does "Don't tell anyone" really mean?
Something happened to Mr. Molly Lou's brother and apparently he said "don't tell anyone," but didn't tell their sister that.
His sister emailed me yesterday and mentioned this situation and asked me to help. I had no idea what she was talking about so I called. She was asking me when I had last talked to Mr. Molly Lou and then explained the situation.
I started defending Mr. Molly Lou to the sister saying I was sure he didn't know. I had been with him all day the day before, etc. I feel horrible about this and called Mr. Molly Lou to discuss with him and see what his plan of action/how we could help his brother.
He replies "I did know. He called me, but asked me not to tell anyone."
Now, let me backtrack just a bit. I have known the siblings since they were young teenagers and we all get along really well. Now, if a friend were to tell me this, I would certainly keep that in confidence, but would tell my husband. More from the standpoint of needing his assistance and thoughts on how to help, etc.
If a friend specifically asked me not to tell my husband, I would certainly do that.
My feelings are hurt that he didn't tell me, I'm embarassed that his sister was sure I knew and I defended Mr. Molly Lou that he didn't know and then it was just me. I am also mad because I feel that I should have known this. I could have helped even behind the scenes. I would have offered some suggestions for Mr. Molly Lou such as he should have left my parents house where we were staying for the night to be with his brother.
So, where is the line drawn on this question? ?Would you tell your spouse?
Have a great day!
Yesterday, I forgot to name the winner of the Holiday Card Set giveaway. Be sure to check out our Holiday 2009 page for our entire collection of holiday cards and gifts.
Congratulations to entry #4, Headbands and Handbags! You should hop over and check her out...she is fabulously adorable.
From her entry, she chose the Words of Christmas card set (only in her entry, it was phrased"tree word one" :)) and once she sends me her address, a set will be on the way to her. I hope she loves these cards...they are really neat and even better in person. Would also make a perfect hostess gift this season.
Thanks to all who entered. A new Birthday Month Giveaway will be up tomorrow.
