“My sister, my two best friends, my boyfriend and sometimes my dad. They’re the only people I can trust, and I know they won’t say anything bad about me or judge me.”

“My best friend. That’s about it. They’re pretty much the only one I can trust. But I’ll tell my parents if it’s important that they know.”

“Nobody, because if anyone knew, they wouldn’t be secrets anymore.”

I watched them burn out one by one........."

How funny, we probably saw each other there. I was young and gorgeous then. (take me back to 1976, and let me start over)

Sgt. Preston's was a wonderful place and too bad that it had to go away.

I have a secret I'd like to share with you, and the LJW ? person who did the writeup for the new restaurant advertised here, Cialito Linda or something like that.

It says the first occupant was Dos Hombres. I guess they weren't around when it was new, and the famous Sgt. Preston's was there, in all it's glory. (And Perrier was the only bottled water anyone talked about.)To this day, I still have very buried feelings about wanting a wooden canoe hanging from my ceiling. Take me back, please.

Multi is very grateful to have a friend beyond what Marion speaks of. Otherwise, I agree, far too many people, husbands, wives and friends are just out for themselves at some point.

"Secrets"= knowledge.

Knowledge = power.

Giving away secrets= giving away power.

NEVER give away your power.

You can trade your power for things, you can sell your power; you can exchange your power for the power of another but you never, ever; not now, not ever, give away your power.

I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. ;)

"Family" are the worst lot to be the recipients of a "secret".

"Family" will always and invariably call you to task on "secrets" even if you are right.

You might as well buy one of the signboards n I-35 near Downtown and by "Downtown" I don't mean that crappy little bit of deteriorating construction in Lawrence and put up your "secret"!

Next worst are the people with whom you are sharing Cheerios in the morning.

Not to be trusted in the least.

Sometimes even after years they will turn on you.

A relationship should be just that; a relationship; separate and distinct from everything else in your life. People do funny things and your life should not have to be negatively affected because a "relationship" has gone bad but that is the way that the present state of our society thinks that things should go.

NEVER tell all of your secrets.

Not now.

Not ever.

No one and I mean no one.

Keep it to yourself.

Loose lips sink ships.

Anyone with whom you share a "secret" will eventually use that "secret" in some way against you.

"There's no one left but thee and me and we're not sure of thee!"

You got a hot deal?

Keep it to yourself until you have bled it dry, then you can tell others about it!

In the meantime, STFU!

Whoever can keep it a secret.

You guys gave some pretty funny responses. :)

On a serious note, is an LJW reporter allowed to simply walk up to one of our schools and start interviewing people? Does s/he have an escort when interviewing these students on campus? How do the students know s/he is a reporter? How do the teachers know? Just curious. I guess I am being too cautious and suspicious . . .

nadajay, you had me for the first half of your comment, I was thinking, this person has the right attitude to be one here. :D Then I read the next part..LOL. (note to self, don't tell nadajay anything!)

kristyj...I just don't know what to say about that. Innocence? Real life? Trust me, there are things you don't want to know.


hopper 6 years, 1 month ago

"girlfriend and boyfriends"....

Ah, the innocence of puppy love..... soon to be shattered. Might as well print that secret on a billboard, boys and girls.

Adam has it together.

With the close-knit secret society known as the members of the LJW's comments section.

Or else with everyone except the person who the secret's about.

my priest... oh wait those are my sins. Same thing I guess.

My hubby. But not ALL of them....


Multidisciplinary 6 years, 1 month ago

I share mine with pretty much only one attorney friend who we know we can tell anything to each other, much more than our spouses.Some old friends are just bonded. :D I am known to be trustworthy, thus many have shared their deepest with me.
