Bowling with your hidden self. [Jun. 4th, 2008|10:47 pm]

Martin Luther was an avid bowler who had his own bowling lane. Many bowling historians credit him with standardizing the rules of bowling and fixing the number of pins at nine. Bowling became an important part of German culture, and children were often taught that thunderstorms were due to St. Peter and the angels bowling.

There's *10* pins, not 9.

That's funny. I used to be Lutheran, and I'd never heard that story :) Heard a number of other interesting stories about Martie, but not that one.

Is it ten everywhere? I was wondering about that too, but that was the little factoid I found. *shrug*

Now I wish I had some horrible, shocking secret to share, but I don't. I tell everybody everything, for the most part. Not that I haven't done some things I regret, of course, I just don't keep them secret. Except that one story about murdering that hobo.

Sometimes I wonder what I'm still doing living, other times I marvel at my ability to connect with sorrow. I wonder what brought this on- if it was biological or something I've suppressed. But sad things draw me in, whisper to me in the darkness. Sometimes it's so overwhelming. Sometimes I feel compelled to go stand at the bridge and just wait and watch. I don't know what grounds me here, other than sorrow. And that terrifies me.

I was told about sex and shown how to masturbate by a neighbor who was 5 or 6 years older than me. I never turned him in or told anyone. To this day I know that however and whenever he dies, I will be happy to know he is gone.

Me and my friend Tak have been wanting to do a post secret for a long time,when we're ready. We don't know which one of our horrible secrets we're going to spill out but we'll figure it out in time. :p

Mine is probably going to read something along the lines of,

"I've never done drugs but if I did maybe then I could explain half the things that are wrong with me."

I wrongly sent someone to jail in highshool I told everyone he made me give him oral sex He didn't make me do anything
To this day I have horrible regret for ruining his record And I wanted to turn myself in and beg his forgiveness but I'm too cowardly to do it

Not a secret, but a story...

I was told as a child that thunder was God & the Angels bowling, then my mom changed the story to "the clouds are bumping together".

So, on a 6th grade science exam I wrote that as the answer and of course got it wrong. I went up to the teacher, a nun, completely shocked! She gave me a "WTF!" look.

That's what I get for trusting my parents.

I just found (figured) out that I might be part Swedish. Now I have this growing, unsettling desire to find out exactly where I come from.

(You'll know who this is, eventually. When I gather up the courage to write about it.)

I can't deal with most people one on one. If I don't already know you well, and we pass on the street, I'll try to hide. If you see me, and we have a conversation, it will seem normal, but afterward I might break into tears from the stress. I'm known as a social person.

My best friend continues to get everything I want in life and I get none of it. Its really wearing me thin and I have to continually remind myself how much I adore her, what a wonderful friend she is, and how much she deserves all her fortunes and success. But I deserve some too.

I have one I thought of the other day:
"I'm sick of trying to look sexy for you so I can feel better about myself."

I really really love PostSecret. It's a terrific idea!
