Knowing how much I enjoy my morning cuppa tea, my friend Mona and her aunt recently gifted me with a beautiful antique teacup. Uniquely, it has a lid—perfect for keeping the tea nice and hot.
Sitting here on this chilly morning, enjoying the feel of the warm cup against my hands, I was admiring the lid and thinking of the occasions when I’ve heard the saying, “Put a lid on it!” In other words, “keep it quiet,” “it’s a secret,” “mum’s the word,” or “this is just between you, me, and the lamppost.”
When you’re asked to hold a confidence, do you keep a lid on it?
