Ever wonder just how far and fast news travels? I have some fairly major news of a personal nature and I was initially trying to “keep a lid” on it, so to speak. While that worked when I hadn’t told a single soul, the minute I spilled the beans to even the most trusted people, the news started spreading like wild fire. Of course, my control-freak nature was screaming that me and me alone should be the one to disseminate this very personal information to every single person who inevitably would learn of it. When that didn’t happen, my social animal nature decided instead to turn it into a social experiment. I am now keeping the same news to myself but am watching with major interest to see the patterns of how and where (and how far) it spreads. I will post the news – as well as the results of the pseudo-experiment which could really just be called an observation in human nature – in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, it is pretty entertaining stuff! Stay tuned… and if you are one of those who happen to fit into the category of a reader of this blog AND already know what’s up with me, please don’t spoil the fun by posting comments that could give it away? Again, there’s my control freak nature rearing its ugly little head…
