Lather, Rinse, REPEAT
Shawna gasped, turned red, and her heart began to beat a tattoo against her ribs.
“This is just between you and me, Linda. I shouldn’t have said anything. The words just flew out of my mouth.”
“It’s okay, Shawna. I won’t say anything.”
“ . . . and then she said . . . but this is just between us, Lora, okay?”
“No problem, Linda. I understand. What happened after that?”
“Harriet¸ you know what Linda told me today?”
5:30 p.m. Dinnertime with Dave and Shawna.
“I tell you, Dave. The women I work with are such gossips! I told Linda that in confidence!”
I had to laugh today as I heard “this is just between you and me” repeated several times between different people. I know this is not a purely feminine thing as I have heard men repeat stories better left un-repeated. That said, it IS more often women I hear repeat the mantra “this is just between us.” Can I just say – it is NEVER just between you. Funny how those words just fly out of your mouth, eh?
