I don't know why I didn't do this post on Sunday. I read the secrets, I read the replies, I just can't get it together. Maybe when school starts next week for my youngest (just Pre-K, but it will be 4 hours a week to do what I want/need to do) I will get more organized. (You should hear the laughter in my head right now) Anyway...this week's Post Secret postcards were fairly tame compared to other postcards. Some were funny (I LOVE the cookie one-NSFW and not safe for kids and the medicine cabinet one) but most were just things that needed to be said. I personally didn't find any of them shocking, or so sad to the point I cried. I did say "Good for you" few times, and "Awww" once or twice, but I liked these postcards because they were just declarations. Maybe by saying out loud "I don't know how not to be lonely" the person writing the card decided to figure out why they feel that way. Or by sending the Audrey Hepburn message it really did let someone out there know they are OK, without having to compromise their whereabouts. The one I am really curious about though, is the Craigslist secret. Seriously? You met your girlfriend where? And who's to say she's not still on there? And even if she's not, who's to say she won't go back? And what kind of diseases do you think she might have? I know, I know...some of you are saying "People change!" "Why not give help give her a second chance at life!" And I'm all for trying to help another person get a better life, but to me there is a fine line between having a girlfriend that USED to be a prostitute (as in, you met her at a bar/club or the supermarket and you find out about her past during the relationship) and paying someone for sex THEN making her your girlfriend. It just seems a little too weird to me! OK...my rant is over. What do you think about this week's secrets? Did any of them make you feel any differently that I did? Do you have any opinions about the Craigslist secret? Oh...and about the cookie secret. I've never thought about shaping the cookies I make like that. Not even when I was in college, or before I had kids. Is there something wrong with me? Is there something wrong with the people that DO make them? I just wonder if I was brought up too conservatively, or if other's were brought up too liberally. AND I wonder if there is a happy medium. An in between that I can teach my kids.
