Secrets Make Friends

29 Sep

My sister-in-law got me started on the blog postsecret, where people send anonymous postcards to a person in New Jersey who posts them on the web.  Some are hiliarious, some are weird, and others are just plain sad.  Knowing that it’s someone’s innermost secret- one that they have probably shared with no one- makes the site really fascinating. 

I should be grading papers right now, but instead, I read the blog and got inspired to post a few secrets of my own.  (Grading can wait until 20 minutes before my husband gets home from bowling, so it looks like I was busy all night.)  Here are a few secrets about me that I’m not ashamed to share:

  • When I don’t know the answer to a question or am just flat out wrong in an argument with my husband, I often respond by making fart noises on my arm.  It sometimes distracts him from the issue, but always pisses him off.
  • I would prefer a meal of box macaroni and cheese over meat and potatoes from a restaurant. In fact, I often order meals that are socially acceptable rather than ones I actually like.
  • Not only do I enjoy prank calls, I am really, really good at them.  Like, I could quit my day job good at them.
  • Just about every day, I find a reason to do high kicks.
  • I sleep with the thinnest, rattiest pillow at night, which I lovingly refer to as “L.P.” (It stands for “little pillow”- obviously).
  • Someday when I have vast amounts of money and time- you know, because that is likely- I want to work for myself, as a writer and a photographer..and a professional speaker (because there’s such a demand for that??).  And I want to own a camera that doesn’t have duct tape on it.
  • Thinking about being a mom someday makes me nervous.
  • I am not sure how much longer I can make it in life without actually learning to cook something.
  • I don’t mind that my dog drinks out of the toilet.  I actually flush it for him so he can gets the freshest water.
  • I pass off cookies from a mix as homemade by adding a little vanilla extract. Works every time.
  • I skip washing my hair whenever I can just so I can sleep later.

If you’re still reading, I would like to hear about your secrets.  Post one as a comment maybe?  Just sayin’.  Secrets make friends.
