Okay, so try not to laugh.
But here’s a real life PostSecret of mine.
When I was a young, just like any other little American girl, I was absolutely in love with the Disney Princesses. Most especially The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, and Sleeping Beauty. Out of all of these, I think Cinderella stuck with me as the most romantic, and even Walt Disney himself was said to have loved Cinderella the most out of all the Disney heroines.
Like it or not, I will admit it now–inside of me somewhere, there’s a tiny piece of me who still wants to be Cinderella. I ask all women my age, Isn’t there a tiny bit of you who likes the sight of frou-frou ballgowns and upswept hair? Doesn’t Dancing With The Stars appeal to you partly because of the costumes? Maybe a larger part than you’d like to admit? I will say that recently while passing through a Target on an quick errand, I slowed my cart ever so slightly in front of a decorative display of Disney Princesses children’s Halloween costumes to admire them before scooting on my way.
So here’s the second part of the secret.
When I experience a truly heartfelt something about a someone, I hear the following song begin to play in my head. I kid you not. It’s like there’s a tiny tape recorder that resides inside my head that lays dormant until someone manages to stir it awake and then I hear:
Perhaps I should just stop trying to date altogether, and just wait until I hear “So This Is Love” kick in. Not a bad idea, right?
