I don’t know which is more difficult, living with my dark secret or coming clean and admitting it to the world. They say the first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem but in this case, it won’t change things. I will only open myself up to criticism and scrutiny from others.
Before I confess and come out of the closet, let me say a few things. You may have heard this all before but I feel it bears repeating, Life isn’t always fair. Sometimes you get dealt certain cards and you have to just play the hand you were given. It isn’t always pretty either and wanting to be like everyone else won’t change things. Being different, only means that I am different. It doesn’t mean I am any better or worse just different. Well I am beating around the bush. I might as well just come out and say it.
Up to this point most of you have probably considered me a computer genus. Perhaps someone that knows his way around the internet and computer world. You probably thought I had some Mega computer connected to the internet through some secret portal that allows me exclusive access to the World Wide Web. A “Computer Stud” if you will. The truth is I still have a Dial Up internet connection. There I said it. I am not proud of it but it is true. Greg has Dial Up. Go ahead everyone take your best shot. I have to live with it because it is the only option where I live. It’s bad isn’t it? I am so ashamed but do feel better for coming clean on this issue. I just hope you all will continue to be my friend. So if you wonder why I am slow in answering you there is your reason. Please don’t hate me because I am slow.
