I know a thing. I’ve only shared it with about ten people. I don’t know if I can share it with you all, or if I need to keep it under wraps until it’s finalized.
I’m fantastic at keeping secrets, sometimes even from myself. My filters have filters, so it’s easy to catch something before it slips out. I’ve been pushing myself to avoid filtering so much, though. I want my teammates to know me, so they understand the kind of crazy I breathe.
“What have you been up to?” on a Monday shouldn’t be a difficult question. We travelled over the weekend. We ate good food. We avoided the heat. That answer would not have been socially awkward at all. Also not what I said. I went into full disclosure. By some miracle, I didn’t share my family drama, so hooray for small favors.
