Secrets...Go ahead, UNLOAD.

Have you ever said something that you wish you could take back the INSTANT you said it, or typed it?

That was me yesterday.

I divulged information, told a secret. It was MY secret. It wasn't one I was holding for someone else, yet I still wish I wouldn't have said it. I WISH I would have had a secret box to dump it in and forget about.

But NOOOOOOO... my fingers had to type or my mouth had to run off and I spilled my secret.

See I'm one of those people that can't carry the burden of a secret. If someone tells me something that they don't want me to tell anyone else, I have my go to person,the one person that actually can keep a secret, that I can unload or share the secret burden with, usually my hubs, (I tell him because anyone that is anyone KNOWS he's part of me... if I know, he knows). Or I would write it down. But what if my GO TO person is the person the secret is about!? Then who do I tell? Not that that is the case, I don't have anything to tell my hubs about my hubs... but you know what I mean. I have this secret to carry around all by my lonesome with no one to help carry the load... ya know?

And then it eats and eats and eats at me... until I unload it.

I so wish I would have had somewhere to unload it so I didn't say anything.

And now I just feel dumb. Again, just so we are clear, the secret was MINE, not someone elses.

Anyway--I thought I'd do all of you a favor and do the SECRET BOX today. Unload your secrets here anonymously or not... only if you don't do it anonymously then it isn't really a telling of a secret as much as it is a confessional. Leave your secret in comments, get rid of it, and BE FREE! Or not.



Like I wish I would have been yesterday afternoon.

Your.Welcome. I'm always letting you guys learn from my mistakes. I'm a giver.

Love,

I have naughty thoughts about goats.

Southern Sage said...

I have a serious crush on my mirror and I don't know why.

Southern Sage said...

That isn't me with the goat thing.

Southern Sage said...

I always try to do things that will make me better looking but I have run out things to do.
Go figure.

Southern Sage said...

Some people think I am extremely smart. I am one of those people.

Southern Sage said...

I love love love to kill em with kindness and it works even better for me because it isn't my nature. People get even more twisted with me when I use this tactic.

Barbaloot said...

There's a serious lack of anonymity around here! How am I supposed to tell REAL secrets? In the spirit of Kristina's secret---I've had guys tell me they want me to be their second wife. What's with that? Gee-thanks for telling me I'm not as good as your first choice.

Sometimes I pretend my husband is another man when we're doing the nasty.

T said...

I am actually glad to be losing my job... and not really all that upset that the hunt is looking grim...

I caught my Father inlaw looking at pornography....ewwwww! The gross factor goes way up with the fact that he is an old man.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I knew I had friends just like me who liked attention! Forget about anonymous! LOL!

Sage glad you clarified the goat one wasn't yours because I would have thought otherwise! :)

I have no more secrets because I keep blabbing it out!

Vodka Logic said...

I am mostly an open book to my friends but I like having a few secrets just for myself.. and about myself.

Maybe next time....

Vodka Logic said...

As for pretending the husband is somebody else.. yep

wendy said...

well crap --WHAT WAS YOUR SECRET THAT YOU DIVULGED. I wanna know.
I am one of the most "unprivate" people ever. I. need. to. learn. to. keep. my. mouth. shut.
I end up getting bit in the butt because of it.
blah blah blah blah

Hey, did you know I've been married 3 times (shhhh) it's a secret.
I think I could be a female polygamist. I like variety (tee,hee)
shhhhh

wendy said...

I just remembered something else.
I am really competetive. Yuppers.
which sometimes leads to itsy bitsy cheating.
shhhhhhhhh

wendy said...

Oh, almost forgot..........
I repent afterwards. Wanted to clear that up.

and I don't like to share my french fries.

Dazed and Confused said...

I'm still in love with my ex ,and every time i see him I want to tell him, but I know he doesn't feel the same, so really it would be stupid.

I love the secrets box idea by the way, it reminds me of an art project by someone called Frank Warren, it's worth googling.

I sometimes lay awake at night thinking of another guy. I'm married.

Last week, one of my neighbor's began moving his stuff to another place. I thought "halle-freaking-lujah! My prayers are answered!" Then it was announced he was staying. I'm wondering where I went wrong. Do I pray harder? Do I put my name in the temple? WHAT?!!! What will make this person GO AWAY?

Malea said...

I "groom" Matt. His eyebrows, back hair, etc. He won't do it himself. He hates it. The only time you will see him unkempt is when he is stressed or cranky. So g'head. Start gaging his demeanor by his brows. It'll be fun.

ps, the neighbor confession was mine. Either I like attention. Or I am wanting your prayers too.

Here you Go SciFi Dad
