Confessions of a Runaway - Guest Blog by Doug

I have been told that confession is good for the soul.

My personal experience however, has not exactly confirmed this belief.

I think that really the best course is to avoid doing anything at all that needs to be confessed.

It seems though, that some people believe I have done some things that need owning up to.

So here goes:

1. I confess that I left home so I could spend all my time with my lover.

2. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and don't know where I am, or what day of the week it is.

3. Often I don't know where I'm going but I go anyway.

4. I feel that a day in which I have not done anything important has most likely been a happy day.

5. I confess that I no longer pay monthly utility bills or bother with mortgage payments.

6. I don't do yardwork anymore so I have lots of time to appreciate the work done by others.

7. When I am asked for my address I give a real one but it is not one that I live at.

8. I enjoy driving my very large truck.

9. I find the 6 o'clock news, the 11 o'clock news, in fact almost all news except the weather is mostly worth ignoring.

10. I don't feel guilt about any of the above.

There I think  I'm done. Does anybody feel any better? I don't, but you know what?....I felt pretty good before.

I loved it!! I guess a lot of us would have to make similar confessions. Isn't that grand?

Dang, you really sound sorry for your actions. Hmmmmm take 3 strong Marguerita's and call me in the morning if you still felt that way. :-)

Your confession makes you sound like an Angel compared to my confession.

I feel much better now that you confessed. Why..not really sure, just gave me a warm fuzzy feeling...hehe

Your confession made me feel better. Always good to know we are not alone.
