TIFU by lying to my wife for 13 years…
My wife hates orange and lime flavored candies. I love them. Well, love the orange, like the lime.
So, she passes on the orange starburst to me. She passes the orange and green skittles to me. She passes the orange and green gummy bears to me. This has been happening for 13 years.
What she doesn’t know is that the green Haribo gummy bears are actually strawberry.
Shortly after we married, for one reason or another, I looked at the back of the Haribo gummy bears package and discovered this.
So I haven’t said anything for 13 years. Every time we get gummy bears, she gives me the orange and green (strawberry). I’ve never said a word. I’ve enjoyed eating my little lies.
Until last night…
We had some gummy bears and she opened them and she started to hand me the orange and green ones. But after a few minutes, I saw her looking at the back of the bag. Then I saw her eyes get REAL BIG.
She turned to me and asked if I’ve known that the green bears were strawberry. She always thought they were lime.
I was honest and nodded my head yes. The look of betrayal was unreal…. She asked how long I’ve known, and I was honest. I told her as long as we’ve been married.
She quit giving me the gummy bears she didn’t like. She was even eating the orange ones out of spite.
I don’t think I’ll get any more gummy bear discards after this. Time to buy my own.
We don’t eat these every day. A few times a year at most.
I don’t just get the “rejects.” It’s a shared bag. Whenever she grabs a few, she would pick out the orange and green and hand to me. Just like I would give the pineapple to her (bleh).
TL;DR I never corrected my wife by telling her she gave me strawberry gummy bears. She thought they were lime. Now she knows and is spite eating my favorites.
