Day 16.

17 Dec

This morning, walk into a police station, announce you’re finally giving yourself up and refuse to say another word for the rest of the day.

Obviously as I am writing to you at 10pm I have clearly not been to the police station and therefore not been arrested for wasting valuable police time. I say valuable….


However today’s task did get me thinking about confessions in general. I mean how much do we really know about each other and what sort of things, if pushed, would we confess to our friends and family, our neighbours, or our work colleagues, if anything? What would I confess? Do I even have anything to confess?

I know that throughout my life I have told a few little white lies, and when I say little I mean little. They are usually in a conversation that goes something like this:

“Have you seen ________ yet? It’s such a good film!”

“Oh yeah I saw that ages ago…..” (nod intently while the other person describes their favourite scene and/or laugh with them when they say about a good line of dialogue)

But then this situation is brought on by my own annoyance that I haven’t seen the movie before my friend/family member/colleague. Sad but true.

I thought about writing my one and only big confession on this page but instead I am going to take my confession, write it onto a postcard and send it to Postsecret. I urge you to do the same – let it go.
