A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.

Something to remember: a blogger can’t keep a secret

Yes, seriously. Snippets of a conversation:

Roba: “I better go sleep, good night.”
J: “Bakeer, good night.”
Roba: “Oh, yeah, bloggers are THE WORST secret keepers ;) I’ll leave you with that.”
J: “Wait. I want to know. Is that something M told you? Because I tried to change the subject.”
Roba: “Ahuh, about [insert Secret 1 here]”
J: “I told him a few weeks ago.”
Roba: “I told him today, but I told him not to tell you that I told you.”
J: “Oh yeah?”
Roba: “And he told me you told him not to tell me that you told him.”
J: “Cool, but this is not the secret that I was refering to.”
Roba: “There’s something else?”
J: “Yes, [insert Secret 2 here]. Yesterday, he kept telling me about it, and then I was like, ‘Listen, I am supposed to pretend that I don’t know!'”
Roba: “3adi man, didn’t I tell you already? I thought I told you last year.”
J: “Yes, you did.”
Roba: “Then what is the problem?”
J: “You told me not to tell to him.”

    PS I’m not too fond of the ordering of the secrets, somehow certain things always end up being refered to as C, 2, etc … Never A, 1, Alpha, First, Top Priority.
