lately, when i've been thinking about possible post topics, i've noticed that a lot of the stuff i typically post paints me in a really bad light. i think i like to write stories that show humanity with all it's flaws & failings because we all have them, but most people like to hide those failings or cover them up. and i think it's refreshing and funny when i read stories that people have written about themselves where they aren't afraid or ashamed to admit to their ugly bits. i love when they're not trying to put their pretty face on to attempt to convince the world that they're as close to perfect as they can get. and i suppose i like to emulate that in my own writing since that's what i like to read.
but with that being said, i think perhaps i have a tendency to write too many stories that make me seem like a really gross person. like maybe you guys who don't know me in real life, come over here to read my stories and laugh at me, but you think in the back of your mind that you wouldn't want to actually hang out with me. and you certainly wouldn't want to be related to me. because, from the sound of it, i'm a person with horrible gas, pizza face & a problem with incontinence. i wear pads on my head and take really embarrassing pictures. i speak without thinking & have bouts of really bad pms. all i need now is to develop some rank halitosis and i could be the poster child for thoroughly disgusting humanity.
i guess i'm trying to say that even though i tell you guys lots of stories and many of them are gross, i'm not like that all the time. i shower daily, use deodorant & don't fart in restaurants (usually). i rarely make off-color jokes in church (unless i'm talking to rachel, then all bets are off) and i don't swear around children. i hope some day i might get to meet some of my blogosphere buddies & i'll try to be on my best behavior. at least for the first few minutes.
