Shhh


Do not tell anyone what I am about to tell you.
I am more afraid of birds than spiders.
When I talk to myself it is always in a British accent.
I don't think I'll ever get old.
My biggest fear is not being able to write the multitude of books in my head.
My favorite color is green, like on a well watered soccer field.
No I do not play soccer.
I despise poor grammar, but sometimes forget the rules myself.
I am sick of text messaging.
I think my hands are my most beautiful feature.
Someday I want to spend a day from dawn to dusk re-reading Cold Mountain,
Blowing my nose on my sleeve at the ending.
I want to change the world but mostly,
I want to be different from it.
I think it would be a shame to die if it was not for love.
In my head I am still eleven years old.
I still feel the urge to build forts on Saturdays.
I sing the Star Spangled Banner in the shower.
Go fish.

I LOVE your secrets! Seriously. They are the best. I might have to write my own list, because I am so inspired by yours! I think you have beautiful hands. I really have noticed before.

And Mands. I'm so lucky to have you for a friend! :)

It's details like these that really make us human.
Thanks for sharing.
