I Don’t Need To Go On Jerry Springer Show… I Told Skip My Secret That I Kept For Years…
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
Slices of soft bread lined the countertop where I was making sandwiches. I went to the refrigerator to get the deli meats to put on each. I didn’t forget the cheese…
I had on my mind a confession I wanted to make to Skip. One about love… In fact, once I told him, I would back it up with photos, so… he could understand. You know how life is… we do things… sometimes.
I wanted him to know what I have… unknowingly… to him… been doing. I’ve been committing this… act… over and over… he never knew it.
You know how it is… one thing leads to another…. and before you know… a lot of time has passed… and …. you are still doing it. I was still doing it… with passion, love. Now… it’s time to tell Skip…
I was wondering if I should contact Jerry Springer Show… make a big deal out of it… like everyone else does? Would you help me make a decision?
When I tell you… you’ll understand what’s been on my mind. I know I should have probably felt guilty all these years doing what I have done… I know I should, but… I have to say… I’m not.
Don’t look at me that way, please. You’ll understand in just a moment what I’ve been doing secretly for years. You might decide… you could do it… get away with it, like I have.
I look at the bread slices lined up on the countertop… I’m about to do it again. I always feel good when I do what I’m about to do… it has to do with the… secret. Actually… IT is the secret.
I go back to the refrigerator… I reached for the squeeze bottle of… mustard. NOW… it’s almost time to do what I love to do, have done unknowing to Skip… all these years.
I just called Skip … to come see. I decided I don’t need to go on Jerry Springer Show… I told Skip he’d understand when I showed him photos of what I’ve been doing all this time. I told him, I needed to make a confession to him… I can’t live with not telling him anymore.
I showed him two photos. He stood looking at them, as I told him what I have kept secret for so long. He just stood there….
I saw a light come in his eyes… watched as his lips began… to smile. You know what he said to me? “I love you, Monst”.
I will tell you now, what I’ve been doing. I’ve been using the squeeze mustard bottle to ….
To draw inside of each of Skip’s sandwiches. I draw, I write … in mustard…. I write the words, “I Love You”.
You can see the hearts I drew inside his bread slices. He knows now, that for all these years, whenever I make him a sandwich… it’s been full of… love.
I don’t need to go on Jerry Springer Show, now. I told Skip my secret… that I kept from him for years.
