Matt just informed me, as I’m sitting on the couch munching on some Almond M&M’s (which I walked into my sleeping child’s bedroom to grab from his diaper bag – in a sheer act of sugar desperation), that I LIED to my mother-in-law and told her I had indeed read “I Capture the Castle” shortly after she gave it to me.
And now he adds, “You admit to NOT reading it publically. Well done.”
So, Jill: I’m sorry! *Sheepish look*
In fairness, I don’t believe the lie was told with any sort of maliciousness on my part. I think, perhaps, it was a moment of trying to impress my future mother-in-law. Most girls can attest to white lies told on behalf of appearances…it makes sense that mine revolved around books.
