A Shameful Secret

A friend asked me out to talk about “something important that I wanted to share for a long time.”

After we sat down, the friend opened with a long and haltingly delivered disclaimer.

“I don’t want you to think badly of me… I know this might sound bad but I want to be honest with you… I hope you don’t judge me for what I’m going to say…”

In all honesty, I was sure she was about to tell me she was having an affair. I wasn’t going to judge because it’s not my place to judge people. Plus, I’m always on the side of my friends.

Finally, the friend lowered her voice, looked around, and whispered…


“I think there’s too much of this wokeness stuff everywhere.”

  1. ” too much of this wokeness stuff everywhere”

    I would be tempted to stand up, point at her and start shrieking “Witch! Witch! Burn the witch!”
    That might be why more people don’t share their deep, dark secrets with me….

      1. Speaking about a sense of humor, I buy sunflower shoots from a local lady. She delivered them today, and I sent a joking text to my husband asking him to go outside and pick up the weed delivery my dealer has left on the doorstep. He got scandalized because yes, I’m so likely to get into weed at this stage of my life.
