As many of you know I am married a long time.
So tonight I thought I’d share with you ladies,
my number one secret,
to not only staying together a long time,
but also how to resist the urge to kill!
So here it is.
My husband and I lie every day.
He tells me,
I look great.
The dinner was lovely.
I haven’t aged a day in twenty years.
My hair is not a mess.
He doesn’t mind that we ran out of milk,
even though I was at home all day.
My blog post was most entertaining.
I tell him
I bought my new expensive jeans in a sale.
I’m only meeting the girls for a quick chat.
His old faded t-shirt must be in the wash ( its thrown out).
What scratch on the car? I hadn’t noticed.
He did a great job “fixing” the broken step.
The girls and I had a very tame weekend away.
Every day a multitude of lies pass our lips.
We are experts in the field of deception.
Our face gives nothing away.
There is no hesitation in our speech.
Our lies roll effortlessly off the tongue.
However there is one lie I would never ever confess to lying about.
This is why I wanted women only reading.
Ladies the sad fact is that although I will never, ever admit it ever,
I do know that sometimes my husband is right!
Now you may shake your heads at our sham of a marriage.
Maybe your relationship is of a more truthful nature.
But for myself my marriage has flourished,
in our bed of lies.
In fact I would go so far as to say,
this never to be admitted “secret lie” is the cornerstone of our marriage.
I’m right even when I’m wrong, and he’s wrong even when he’s right.
