 and after hearing this my immediate thought is: " I have no one to tell?!"

which is immediately followed by my making a mental list of everyone I could dish to.

I love getting info like that.  I don't tell so a lot of people tell me stuff.  I do have a best friend that does get to hear everything, but she is a vault, and she doesn't know the people, usually.

I would tell hubs but he isn't usually interested anyways.

So now everyone knows, if you tell me a secret my best friend will hear and will not tell anyone, and my husband may hear but won't pay any attention.  lol

my immediate thought is "oh geez, I'm not sure I even want to hear it" and that is generally followed up with "ugh...I was right this was not anything I wanted to know"

That may or may not say a lot about the people you talk too.  Usually when this is said to me its about some kind of incredibly good news that they dont want to share  too soon, like pregnancy or engagement or a new job.. 


only if it was something that was said to me on a regular basis.  I don't have people in my life that gossip and those that do I work to keep at a great distance as I don't trust them.   Really the only people I've found prone to this type of thing are those I've "met" online, thankfully those friendships are superficial and easily avoided.

I haven't heard that line in a long time. I guess people don't feel the need to tell me not to blab? Or people just don't tell me things they want to keep secret.

some more so than others to be sure :)

I know the feeling. I have dreams about my Dad an in the dream I am so happy to see him And I have to remind myself when I wake up that he is gone and it's like a kick in the gut all
over again. He died very suddenly when I was 29.

 So many times there has been something I wanted to tell my parents--news from old friends, something exciting about grandkids...and then it hits me that I can't. They passed away a long time ago. Its too sad.And it keeps happening.

That's one of the reasons i'm so thankful my parents will never die. I can't imagine not being able to call my mom. I'm an adult with a child of my own but i need still need them very much.

your parent's will never die?  Are they cyborgs?
