The Tao of PostSecret

The messages on PostSecret are usually pretty direct. I mean, you don't really ever know the whole story behind them, but you get the core of what's going on in someone's life or someone's mind. That's why I like this one. It made me laugh out loud when I saw it. It expresses a common human feeling without really letting on what's at stake. Sure, it might very well have to do with the car, and sure, cars + life can end in very unhappy ways, but you don't really know that. Instead, this struck me as mildly absurd in its incongruity, hence my laughter. Oh, and this week's opener about being afraid of Macaulay Culkin's a hoot as well.
