- Wedding: September 2010
Background: One of my close friends live out of town. Her dad lives in my town and I sometimes hire him to do work around my house. Last year, he was over doing some work and said “Have you talked to “friend” lately?” and I said “a few weeks ago” and he said “I think you should call her. She has some good news”. It turns out she was pregnant, but in the early stages and they weren’t telling anyone but family. She didn’t mind that I found out, but just hadn’t planned on sharing. Three weeks later she called to say she miscarried. I was devastated for her.
About 6 weeks ago, she told me that she was pregnant again but they weren’t sharing with anyone else (including family) until they got past the point of her last miscarriage. Fast forward to this weekend and her dad is over again doing work at my house. He said to me “Have to talk to “friend” lately?” in the same tone as last year. I respond with “you can’t spill the secret because I already know!” He looks at me with complete surprise and says “what secret???”
Bees – I feel SOO bad! I tried to backtrack but he knew what I meant. I called her right away and she said that they hadn’t told their parents yet but she was going to the next time they talked (that week). She actually thought it was kinda funny. She says now she knows she can’t tell me OR her dad anything!
Has anyone else ever spilled a friend’s secret by accident?
