Kate is hovering in the 90's for followers.  I would LOVE it if we could push her over 100.  I'll throw in something EXTRA (besides the mystery thing I'm purchasing today) if she makes it over 100 before the 31st.


As a follow-up to last week's diary questions, have you ever (accidentally or on purpose) read someone else's diary?

What did you learn?

Read a piece of someone else's diary and felt horrible. Never again.

my sister and i used to read each others' diaries mercilessly. it got so that i would just make up my entries to see if i could shock her. :)

Never read anyone's diary before and I think if I ever did, I'd feel horribly guilty for it.

My mother read my letters to and from a long distance friend when I was in high school. It affected us deeply when my mother discovered that my friend was a pot smoker. (I was not, for real.)

After suffering that breach of trust (which lasted for years), I've so far successfully resisted the temptation to read any of my daughter's several journals (and she' only 9, for God's sake). She has given me permission a couple times in the past, and I felt honored. I want her to kwow I respect her, so long as she earns it and continues to earn it throughout adolescence.

That's not to say I'm above reading it if I sense something dangerous going on.

I have never read someone else's diary but my sister once stole and read mine.

Never done the diary thing. Or read anyone else's either. Though, I can't deny it sounds like it would be fun to read someone else's diary. :)

Thanks for sharing the contest, Vicki :) I have never read anyone else's diary, probably because I always kept one when I was younger and it was ALWAYS getting read! Grrr!
