You caught me! Guilty! I do have a hiding place, well maybe more than one. What is it that we have a need to hide things? Is it privacy? Is it that we are afraid our goods will be taken? Are we that distrusting that we must hide things? I can understand having a place to put your valuables. But is chocolate or your favorite popcorn a valuable? I guess it depends on who you are talking to!
Yes, in this photo I divulge one of my stashes, now I will have to move it because my family will see this and figure out what I am hiding and where I am hiding it. Darn!
When I was a child I would hide in this bathroom to eat chocolate. If I didn’t hide and eat the chocolate in my secret place, then I had to share it with my other three siblings. Everything got split into fours in our home. I remember having a Reese’s peanut butter cup and my mom made me cut into four pieces and share with my sister and two brothers. Yes each one of us got about a thumb nail size piece of it. Just enough to wet our appetite and crave more that we couldn’t have.
I believe the reason my mother made us share everything, was because she grew up in the depression era! I do believing in sharing…and sometimes I believe it’s only mine!
So what treat or goodies are you hiding from others in your household?
