I'm not very good at keeping secrets. I like to think it has more to do with the fact that I am generous and less to do with the idea that I am not trustworthy. I just want to share!
This personality trait isn't new. I was a tattle-tale when I was a kid. That is, until my older brother made it very clear that it was in my best interest to keep my mouth shut about some of his escapades. Once the bruises faded, I realized that he'd taught me a good life lesson. Discretion is important.
These days the kinds of secrets I deal with aren't earth shattering. There are the new colors that we're keeping under wraps. And the dates of a certain knitting convention that will happen in 2011. Maybe even the launch of a new Color Commentary colorway.
I'm glad that my secrets aren't critical to national security. It's nice to have a few things to keep close to the vest while still knowing that spilling the beans won't mean the end to life as we know it.
This is all a very long winded way to say that I can't show you the socks I started yesterday because they are in one of our five new colors and we aren't sharing those until TNNA.
But, we might have something in the way of a surprise come Friday. Assuming that all remains right in the world of international air travel.
