Everyone's got a skeleton or two in their closet. I'll not demean us all by asking you to reveal them, but imagine if for some reason your deepest, darkest secret was revealed to the world at large. What level of horror are you looking at? On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being mild embarrassment, maybe cheeks might go a bit red, to 10 being quite likely to find yourself wavering on a ledge at the top a tall building, sobbing into the wind.
I reckon I'm looking at a 6 - hideously embarrassing, some damage limitation required, but far enough in the past to get through. Wouldn't want to explain myself to my parents though.
