I've been mulling over an idea for a post where I would ask that all of the comments be submitted anonymously. Normally, I have the anonymous option turned off because I like knowing who to picture in my head when I'm crying from criticism. Heh--just kidding. Heh, mostly.
But I also recognize the freedom that holds hands with the option to remain anonymous. Have you heard of Post Secret? It's an amazing concept. The site and books are addictive. Maybe you've already purchased the books? Or maybe you just read 20 pages at a time when you're at Barnes and Noble's? Hmm? Thought so. That's tacky and totally something I totally wouldn't do. Like almost never.
I was at a bit of a quandary regarding the tone of the question I wanted to pose to you. Should it be something that's a total dive into the deep end? Or should I stay in the wading pool with floaties? Or, maybe I should go for something in the middle like a somersault in the 5-feet-deep water. Maybe I should quit writing in aquatic similes? Nah....that would be boring. Okay, put your goggles on ladies and gents. Hope you remembered to shave!
Remember to submit your comments anonymously; make sure you're not signed in. And if you're worried that I'll be able to figure out who you are by doing something technological, you can trust that I have no idea how to do that and I'd sooner eat a piece of head cheese before learning how to do it. No time for love, Dr. Jones...
What is the worst fib/white lie/MAJOR lie you've told? And were you caught?
I'll chime in with my anonymous answer/comment in a bit, too.
I hope some lurkers will delurk and spill their guts on this one. I'm also hoping this will be freeing---like dancing in the moonlight in our underwear. Or sitting in our underwear by the glow of the TV set? Or washing our bras in the sink by the light of an incandescent fixture? This blog is nothing if not full of options.
Please encourage your readers to stop over and spill their guts, too. This could be good.
