Wow, there are actually way more of these things that I have done than I actually sent! Amazing! It makes me feel a little better about my life.

By the way, I love my parents.

ok, this was so fantastic and cathartic. and i LOVE how many of these involve drugs, alcohol, and sex. this collective is such a rebel crew. oh, and i totally second that last one about the sick day. totally.

rebecca ann said...

i would just like to say that the sick day one was mine. i am a glutton for sick days.

I knew it was yours the second I read "pretend to be at work."

I was unclear as to the topic of this list...secrets? tnhings in general? Gosh I loved reading these.

Although, it *was* lacking one vital phrase we all want to say but probably don't, fearing the possibility of being bitch-slapped:

GROW UP.

I forgot to say that I was unclear, therefore that is why I did not contribute. But I LOVED reading this list nonetheless!!!
