How is it that I occasionally lose my self-edit function? I just shared a wildly inappropriate story over in the comment section of a blog I love, and it occurred to me while posting it that a)I can never post short comments--I always wind up leaving a little doofus pamphlet; b) no one gives a crap about my bootleg Samuel Pepys-stylee; c) let's leave some mystery, shall we? I don't know. In person, I can be wildly private. But there's something about a comment box that leaves me powerless. It might as well be a confessional. Weird.
