Daily Prompt: Can you keep a secret? Have you ever — intentionally or not — spilled the beans (when you should’ve stayed quiet)?
Once at school a girl in my class had been off for a few days, so one day I asked my friend if she knew where she was. My friend told me she was in Nigeria visiting people and it didn’t really register in my head that we’re not allowed to go on holidays during term time. Later that afternoon, our tutor was taking the register and asked if anyone had seen the girl recently or knew where she was. Like an idiot, I told him that she was in Nigeria. Everyone sort of looked at me and then I realised that it was obviously meant to be kept a secret. Luckily for me, (and the girl), our tutor had a very bad memory and when she came back and told him she’d been really ill for a couple of weeks, he didn’t seem to remember what I had told him… phew!
