I dislike secrets. I cannot keep one. Hence, I was astonished when a friend told me she wanted to share a secret with me.
“Beware, I cannot keep secrets,” I cautioned her.
“But this one you have to keep it to yourself or I will be in serious trouble,” she continued.
“Let me try.”
“A guy proposed to me,” she continued.
“Wonderful. What did you say?”
“Actually I also like him.”
“Go ahead. All the best.” I parted.
It was a very hard task.
One, two, three and days turned into a week.
At last, unable to restrain myself, I shared the news with a colleague.
“That’s old news buddy,” he ignored me.
I tried to check with another acquaintance.
“In which age do you live? They are getting married in three months,” he cut me down and gave more details.
I angrily confronted my friend who wanted me to keep the “secret.”
“Why did you tell me not to tell anyone?”
“That’s because I wanted the entire world to know,” she replied.
