Whether it be shame, mischief, or illegal activity, many of us have stories we can’t openly admit, especially on the internet. Sure, there’s probably not someone watching us and chances are the cops aren’t really that invested in our lives… *waves high to my assigned NSA agent* there’s nothing more stupid than admitting to a crime via social media.
I want to play a game.
Comment telling me what type of story you can’t tell, using one word for each:
“Illegal” for, obviously, things that might get you arrested if you’re paranoid like me.
“Embarrassing” for, obviously, really embarrassing stories you’d rather forget.
“Scary” for stories that freak you out too much to recall.
“Paranormal” a subcategory of scary, anything paranormal or supernatural that you’d never like to revisit.
“Upsetting” for stories that are too traumatic or depressing.
“Stupid” things that you’ll never admit that you did, because you don’t want anybody to know the depth of your stupidity.
“Friends/family,” basically, your friends or family follow you on social media and somehow keep finding your alternate accounts. Or even worse, your friends parents added you on Facebook.
Obviously, we all have stories that would probably fit into all these categories but I’m talking about the creme of the crop, the worst, the cringiest, the most horrifying. Also, feel free to come up with categories I missed.
I’ll go first: Illegal, embarrassing.
(pretty please, or this post will be really awkward.)
