OT--Deep, Dark Secrets

I was working out at the gym last night, and a Shania Twain song comes blasting out of the speakers. To my shock and horror, I actually liked the song. Thank you for allowing me to unburden myself by confessing this to you all.

Who's next?

I was in a hurry the other day and there is a McDonald's right next to where I park. I rarely eat there, but popped in and noticed they had a new item, the Southern Style Chicken sandwich. I tried it and must admit that I liked it - although it could have used a bit more seasoning.

Now that I have confessed, I still don't feel good about it.

Shania Twain and a McDonalds sandwich.......................................................This is not exactly AA stuff here. Can you picture a meeting. "Hi, My names Tom and I ate a chicken sandwich at McDonalds."

At least JT's hanging around the Gym at night trying to get into real trouble!

I was listening to a local pop radio station and heard a catchy little tune, sang the chorus and thought it wasn't too bad...it was Miley Cyrus.

What happened to my discriminating taste in music? I want it back!

It's not totally off topic. Shania reportedly is a Bag Balm user.

Hi, my name is Mono, and I have two toes on my right foot that get numb after about 3 miles. There, I've confessed. I'm glad I came to this meeting of NTA (Numb Toes Anonymous).

And not like it's anyone's business, but a couple of times a month I go to McD at lunch, pick up a #2 meal (the two small cheeseburgers and fries) with a Diet Coke, and go home and eat in my recliner while watching the History Channel.

I visited Mickey D's last week and I got a Happy Meal. I still haven't figured out what the toy was supposed to be. I gave it to one of the granddaughters when they were here a couple days ago.

I love Shania, I'm not ashamed, and she's split from Mutt, so she's available again.

And in 8 years, she can join our forum, too. Pretty hot for 42, huh?

Oh, and I eat ****** Grape peanut butter and jelly out of the jar. There, I've said it....

Lets see - share my deep dark secrets on the internet where Homeland Security can pick them out and spirit me off in the dead of night to Guantanimo or some such place? Naw, I think I'll keep them safely buried.

Enjoy your chicken sandwich.

Are they the ones who sing, "I'm all out of love, what am I without you..."?

Actually, I think using that yellowish petrochemical goo would be a deep dark secret.

OK here's mine.... I spend way too much time at this computer.

What margarines are made out of petrochemicals?

The one I use is made out of olive & soybean oils.
