Why this blog is about to get all kinds of boring

"I have a confession to make," he said over dinner. "I've read your blog."

I had known this was a possibility ever since I had accidentally revealed my secret blogging identity to his friends a few weeks earlier in a moment of drunken provocation. (The first rule of secret blog is you do not talk about secret blog! Duh!) Still though, I had hoped that this moment would come later rather than sooner.

"How much have you read?" I asked him, stricken. 

"Enough to know that you always make that face when you find out that someone has read your blog."

He said that, while he thoroughly enjoyed reading it, both he and his friend agreed that in order to give me the space to do what it is that I do here, they wouldn't be doing any further reading. Nevertheless, I am sure you can understand my need to proceed blogging with caution from this point onward. Suffice it to say, I kissed a boy (and I liked it...)

And that's all I have to say about that.

    I mean, yay boys, of course. But don't stop be-blogging! You can always talk about why you like dachshunds... or kittens... or something? Right?

  10. Your happiness is more important than our reading pleasure. :)

    Still your writing talent isn't limited to your romantic misadventures.

  11. Too bad for you. Some things are better left un said because once you let them out then you have to face the consequences. Even if you blog with caution, I am sure there still will be interesting things to write about.
