confessions + statements

In my house, we
do this thing where we say something and
reaffirm whether or not guilt is associated with it.

I’ll give you a few examples.

I bought three smoothies at that juice place
on Penn Avenue yesterday after my yoga class and
I drank them all in one sitting.

Statement, not confession. What I mean by that is,
let’s be real, those smoothies were damn good.

I binged Project Runway instead of making dinner.

Statement, not confession.
No explanation needed.

I didn’t do the dishes like I said I would.

Confession, not statement. What I mean by that is,
I don’t like when I don’t follow through on my promises.

I let myself daydream every morning.

Statement, not confession. What I mean by that is,
I like to remember what it's like to be a kid.
