    英文有一種說法 A skeleton in the closet. Skeleton 在此指秘密 一般指不好的秘密 而closet在這裡指一個秘密的地方 一般人家不知道你有的 像是你是GAY 而你出"櫃"了 這個"櫃"跟closet是一樣個意思 不然人家也不會說出"櫃" (coming out [of] the closet)

    我打個比方你比較能了解 英文很難用中文解釋 你要知道含意才是真的 所以 比方說 你兒子的爸其實是老王 這個是個很羞恥 一般你不會想要讓別人知道的 所以這件事是A skeleton in your closet 講簡單一點 就是一般你不會想要給人家知道的秘密 可是是你自己的 "I have some skeletons in my closet"=> 我有一些(見不得人的)秘密 或是家族的秘密

    There are no skeletons in the closet 我想 在報紙上 應該是指這個人沒有什麼見不得人的秘密 (有前後文我才能100%確定知道她到底在講什麼 不過我想應該是不會錯的)

    "Skeletons in the closet" are embarrassing things which we would like to put away so other people cannot see them.

    e.g.

    "I don't want anything to do with that guy; he has too many skeletons in the closet."

    "I had only known her for one week. How could I know what skeletons she had in her closet?"
