What would you do if this completely and totally made up story happened to you.
Imagine if you will that you took your daughters to go see Hannah Montana the movie, not because you thought the male lead was cute or anything, but because you were a caring mother and knew your daughters would enjoy it. In the same ‘wonderful mother’ attitude you let your darling children pick out some candy. Daughter number two picks gummi bears. You happen to like gummi bears and after devouring all your junior mints (completely hypothetical remember) you lean over and ask your daughter for a few bears. Come to find out, she only likes the clear gummi bears (who knew?) and anything that wasn’t clear she took a few chews of and spit back into the bag. (gross, never mind, you decide you don’t want them after all.)
At the end of the movie you stick the bag of half chewed gummi bears into your purse and promptly forget they are there. (like you do with most things you stick in your purse. Oh, wait you don’t? That’s only me? Well, it’s just a story anyway, so no need to get technical.)
A few days later you walk down the stairs and see your husband sitting on the couch with an empty bag of gummi bears. Having forgotten that your husband has a nose for all things gummi, you didn’t think to warn him about the regurgitated nature of the gummi bears residing in your purse (plus you had forgotten they were there anyway).
“Um, did you eat all those gummi bears?” you ask.
“Oh, yeah, I’m sorry, did you want some?”
“No, no, not at all. Uh…were they good?”
“Yeah, they were great, thanks.”
At this moment you know you should tell him, but at the same time you think, ‘what’s done is done.’ So my question to you is: Do you tell him?
This isn’t a real scenario remember. I’m just preparing in case something like this ever happens. You can never be too prepared.
