The Joy of Secrecy
Nothing cloak-and-dagger, but I recently took a journey to a secret location.
This happened because a few weeks ago, I asked my wife what she’d like for her birthday. “Take me on a trip,” she said. So I took her on a mystery trip. She knew the dates and vaguely where we were going, but not the exact city, and not what we were doing (a ten-day world music and dance festival in Drummondville, Quebec, three days of which we got to attend).
This is fun! And we have a history of things like this. For my last birthday, I asked to be blindfolded and taken to a restaurant I’d never been to. Without her asking, I’d done that for my wife several years earlier.
Keeping some mysteries and secrets is a very healthy thing in a romantic relationship.
