I think you'll all agree that I don't mind being relatively transparent.
I've openly discussed my unhealthy obsession with TAB and Cheez-Its. I admit that I talk to my dog and conversely, that he generally responds in kind. I have freely admitted that I am married to and dearly love a man that is my complete polar opposite. He is methodical and proactive and organized. He's a logical thinker. A brilliant person really. Which, I have to admit looks really bad for me because the polar opposite of all that? Not too flattering.
I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I love bugs. I'm a procrastinator. I hate board games. I vehemently dislike the color purple. I'm a conflict avoider.
And oh yes, I still occasionally (OK, almost every day) use my perfume bottle as a "microphone" and pretend that I am a famous singer. Most recently it's been Adele. But last Friday it was K.C. (you know, of "and the Sunshine Band").
You see, I typically have no problem sharing at all. Let's see what's left?
Oh yes, I am a total fashion disaster. I wear my jeans several days in a row without washing them. I eat peanut butter (and Nutella) oh (and Marshmallow Creme) out of the jar with my finger.
Like I said. Typically I lean heavily toward the OVERSHARE.
So, you see, I think you might be surprised to learn that there's one thing I can't bring myself to share.
My cheesecake recipe.
Yep. I am embarrassed and ashamed to admit that I'm totally prideful of My Cheesecake recipe. Usually, you know, I am decidedly in favor of giving out all of my recipes. I mean it's not like I want to have to fess up on Judgement Day that I was so stingy and arrogant that I held on to that sucker til the bitter end. It's a dessert. Not like the key to any kind of human-kind mystery or anything.
I made two cheesecakes recently. I took photos of all the steps. I typed out the recipe and saved it. It is no longer just enclosed in the iron trap of my mind. I had every intention of posting it today, and then I had my own small, private panic attack accompanied by excessive sweating and realized that I just COULD. NOT..DO IT.
So I guess I'm asking for your help, your counsel so to speak to barrel past this obstacle.
I want to be a better person. I do. One that you'll be proud of....
And I should probably ditch the kitchen security cameras I had installed for the recent cheesecake making session. That was probably wrong too.
In my weakness,
