Sharing is caring!

This is an anonymous secret shared by one of our readers.

This might sound a bit odd, but here’s a little mix-up that turned into a big secret. A while back, for a laugh, I told my boyfriend that the dog biscuits I bought for our pet were a new type of gourmet snack. Curious and always up for trying something new, he tried one. To my utter surprise, he loved them! He was so impressed by the “crunch and the subtle, savory flavor” that he started having them regularly.

I thought he’d soon realize the mix-up, but instead, he began raving about these ‘premium snacks’ to friends and family. He’s even gone as far as recommending them during dinner parties and family gatherings. Now, everyone’s curious about this delicious new treat he keeps talking about.

To keep up the ruse, I’ve been hiding the dog biscuit box among high-end snack packages in our pantry. Whenever he reaches for a treat, he unknowingly chooses these canine goodies, still believing they’re human food. Part of me is amused by the situation, but as he starts to share this ‘discovery’ more widely, I’m getting nervous. What if someone decides to look closer and discovers the truth?

I’m torn between coming clean and continuing to watch this play out. What should I do? Keep the secret a little longer for laughs, or tell him the truth and risk a potentially embarrassing situation? What would you do if you were in my shoes?
