If I were to send a postcard to PostSecret, here are some of the things it could say:

I'm sorry for what happened.  But I'd do it again.

Based on his patterns, you will move forward - and disband before you get where you want to go.

If she weren't in the picture, you'd probably have let go by now.  If you could let go, there's a better chance that I could. 

It hurts me that you're friends with them.  It's irrational and unreasonable, and I'd never ask you to change it in a million years - especially now, when you need friends more than anyone else I know.  But none of that changes the fact that I feel betrayed.

You always taught me not to cry.  Now it feels like the only reason I do is 'cause I miss you.

That post was about you.

I'm not likely to ever get up the drive and energy and time to put together one of those postcards, but if you ever glance at the site and see one of these there, it may have come from me.

Notice, by the way, that I'm continuing with my trend: this post isn't locked.  It could be about you, it could be about someone else.  Don't assume.

I have a feeling that at least one of those is about me. I have no idea if it's the last one or not, because the link seems to take me to the "Update Journal" page.

I came up with the text for that last one, typed it, then decided to make a link out of it. Thought it would be funny to have it point to something that could be interpreted any way people wanted, so I did what you saw.

Ended up causing more confusion than anything else. Oh, well. Sure seemed a good idea at the time...

Re: heh
I did find it humorous, but I didn't think it was intentional, especially considering how serious the rest of the post was.

Would have been funny to link it to something completely random like the Krispy Kreme/ant entry, or one of the "highly intentional experiment" entries...

That woulda been better.
Like I say, the idea was an afterthought. I find that those usually end up underdeveloped, since I'm already halfway to clicking on "post" by the time they occur to me, so I rush through them.

Yeah, that would have been much better. I hate missing opportunities to link to the Krispy Kreme entry. That's still one of my favorites. =)

Forgot to mention the point. No, that last one wasn't about you.
Kurt Onstadspeedball on March 3rd, 2006 09:03 am (UTC)
Well, yeah.
That's fairly obvious now...That wasn't really one of the ones I thought it was anyways.

If you look for it, you can find my guesses.

Neat - you're as dumb as me!
If you look for it, you'll find my reply.
