How to Not Keep a Secret
About a year ago I was in a store and saw this faux book and thought "Oh. I should buy that, I always have books laying around. No, if I do that everyone will know it's a fake book. Plus, it doesn't even have Trainspotting written on it. Wait, people will know it's a faux book so they will know not to look in it". So I bought it.
The last part of that statement has never happened. Everytime someone walks into my apartment that's the first thing they spot, and then they walk right over and open it up. The thought of privacy doesn't enter anyone's mind. More people have seen the spare cell phone cords than when they were on the end table. I feel somewhat bad about it, people are always so excited and feel so smart and full of childlike illusions. I need to figure out something more awesome to put in there so that feeling of discovery doesn't die; maybe I'll write some fake love letters from a ninja....or maybe a treasure map also from a ninja. Ninjas are awesome.
