Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated September 23rd, 1996

MY TV ADDICTION SCARRED MY SON

Lost in a world of make believe, she tuned out everything around her -- even her baby's desperate cry for help


It pays to take things literally in Woman's Day. Reading this headline, I interpreted the 'scarring' as metaphorical, bitterness and resentment for a lifetime of neglect. Silly me! Share A Secret had more direct scarring in mind, courtesy of a saucepan of boiling water.

The damsel in the picture appears almost incapable of boiling water, quite frankly. The compulsory touch of red is provided by the collar on her pet dog (a non-textual detail), the remote control, and a few flowers on the tasteful throw cushions. Looking like this, it's no wonder she married a TV repairman.
