My wife and I were talking about Meredith and how my wife knew more than I did early on in my relationship with Meredith. Then she tells me that she thinks I’m doing the same thing with Sydney! Whoa! I was shocked to hear this. I don’t talk about Sydney very often at home.
My wife can be very perceptive about some things. I don’t know if she picking up on some kinds of tone or specific word choice but that was uncanny.
I did talk to our counselor about Sydney though so I need to be more honest about it with my wife. It’s really difficult to do. I know everyone keeps saying trickle truth is the worst, but my wife can literally only absorb so much at once and has asked me to hold back on things. But today if we get the chance I will tell her more about Sydney – at least what it means to me that she exists and that there is an attraction.
