21 Easter Confessions by Sarah Lane

  1. I used to lie and say that I was 5'2" on my driver's license. Then I thought, "What if my identity is called into question someday because of this falsehood?" So I downgraded to 5'1" at my last renewal.
  2. I don't crave ice cream, ever. I don't know what happened. It just went away.
  3. I sing to my cats when no one's around. A lot.
  4. I might be the worst singer you've ever heard.
  5. I suspect that I have some form of ADD, though I've never been treated for it. I often really struggle to focus on things, and I blame our modern times.
  6. I fantasize about becoming an acupuncturist and maintaining a successful practice in a small town somewhere with a lot of trees.
  7. I spend too much time online checking up on things that aren't important.
  8. I used to get the bands Cheap Trick and Crowded House confused.
  9. I used to get Neil Simon and Neil Diamond confused.
  10. I realize that, at the ripe old age of 31, I'm still totally clueless.
  11. I'm also stubborn and sometimes I can't admit when I'm wrong. I'm working on it.
  12. I hate folding and putting away clean laundry more than any other household chore. I will choose the toilet over folding and putting away clean laundry. I have no idea what my problem is.
  13. I miss my dad and sometimes it overwhelms me.
  14. I'm in the preliminary stages of planning a trip to Africa.
  15. I still watch "Friends" reruns. All the time. And I never laugh at any of the jokes.
  16. I recently stopped following all celebrity gossip. It was a hard habit to break, but I'm proud of myself.
  17. I don't know anything about the state of Nebraska besides obvious associations like corn and flat land, which is totally unfair.
  18. I love the feeling I get on a Saturday morning when the sun's streaming through the window and I have nowhere to be.
  19. I hate being jealous. I think it's the ugliest emotion ever and I try really hard not to let it in.
  20. I try not to be too hard on myself, either. Nobody's perfect.
  21. I'm cooking artichokes for dinner.
