Liar, Liar, pants on fire
This week’s Query is about telling lies. And no, I wasn’t asking for pointers! In fact, I already know how to lie all too well, but asking others about their lying habits really made me pay attention to mine.
I find that I don’t lie as a general habit – a good thing to realize about myself. The bad thing? I’ve recently started telling “sugar-coating” lies. Just a bit of a fib to make the bad news sound better.
Lying gets easier each time you do it, like a lot of bad habits. I’m glad I asked this question, because I don’t want to get into any kind of lying habit, even if it’s only told to make the medicine go down easier. So, I caught myself doing this and I stopped. I find that I don’t really have to sugar coat (lie about) the bad news after all, and I feel better for having been honest.
You so Pretty!!!!
well, I know you’re not lying
I’ve awarded you an award. No lie. http://thesinglecell.wordpress.com/2011/08/17/in-which-i-bestow-honors-on-people/
Thanks! That was mighty nice. I agree about the versatile part, I don’t know that many of us are truly versatile. Or conversely, we are all versatile. We all write about many different topics, but we’re being ourselves all the time. The tone is the same no matter what we write, because it’s our voice. That’s one of the interesting things that I’ve learned while blogging, is how strong people’s personalities and voices shine through. We are who we are, even when we don’t really know who we are. That didn’t make as much sense “on paper” as it did in my head, but there you are.
