I’ve already written about the problems I had getting the geekdaughter to keep a secret from the geekdaddy. Well, today there was another development in the saga.
As we came back from the aforementioned shopping trip, and she dashed into the bedroom to spill the beans on what we had bought, I had to think of a place to hide the beer. I had to do this quickly, and then run after the geekdaughter and hopefully catch her before she said too much. In my rush, I simply placed the presentation box onto the chest of drawers in our spare room, thinking “I’ll hide that properly when I get a minute”…
Of course, I’ve never had that minute, and in fact had forgotten all about the box until I was in the spare room with the geekdaughter and geekdaddy this evening. And it was the geekdaddy who drew my attention to it, by loudly exclaiming “why is there beer in here?”!!!
On the bright side, at least it shows he’d forgotten all about it. And with any luck he’ll forget all about it again before Christmas Day.
And of course, when I get a minute I’ll go back and hide it properly!
