Out of the Closet

April 25, 2008

Fellow bloggers, readers, friends….

There’s something I need to come clean with you about.

I have not been honest with you.  Well, I have not been DIShonest, but I have been only partially honest.  Deceptive by admission.  I have kept something big from you.  Possibly you have guessed – certainly I have dropped hints along the way.  Maybe you suspected.  I’ve been keeping a huge part of myself secret.  Closeted, if you will.

Why have I kept this thing from you?  For self-preservation reasons really.  I didn’t know if you would judge me, fair reader.  Perhaps it would turn you off completely and my readership of three would dwindle back down to two…or even one.  But alas, the burden has become too much.  I feel that I am misrepresenting myself.  I am hiding an integral part of who I am: a part that colors my world and alters my day-to-day interactions and thoughts.  And so it is time.

For

me

to

tell

you

I am a big fan of country music.

There, I said it.  Boy, what a load off.  Now I just want to shout it from the mountain tops.

I.  LOVE.  COUNTRY.  MUSIC!!!!!  I love it all.  I love Brad Paisley, and Big and Rich, and even Toby Keith.  I listen to it on the sly whenever I can.  My car radio is programmed to the country station but I made it button #4 so it seems like an accident.  I think I might know all the words to all the songs.  Even the sexist songs and the stupid ones about alcohol.  I love it.

Wow.  I feel so light.  So EXPOSED.  But better.  Definitely better.  As they say, the truth shall set you free.  And I, lover of country music, am now free.

    Well hello there! 🙂

    Growing up, I listend to country music – and am still a big fan of The Judds (80s classic country), Johnny Cash, and some Alabama. Now I’ll listen to Brooks & Dunn – and I really like the song that goes something like, “I’m not as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was….”

    Makes me laugh every time.

    I love you with country music – nothing could change that! 🙂

    I thought that was only MY secret! I didn’t think there were any cool people out there who listened to country music. I used to hate it, but over the last few years… it’s been my dirty little secret too. 🙂 When I go to Texas for work, I pretend that’s the only station I could find on the radio!
