“I mean, sure, I lie. Everyone lies.”
(The New Adventures of Old Christine)
In SECRETS, LIES & LULLABIES, Jessica tells Alex some whoppers, but they are definitely lies she feels forced to create.
So today I’m wondering…
What’s your LIE?
Here’s one of mine:
While I was growing up, my mother used to say I was like two different people—Heidi when I was happy & in a good mood, evil twin Helga when I was in a bad mood or throwing a fit. And when I went away to college, I actually managed to convince a couple of friends that I was a twin. I mean, I totally & completely had them going…with no intention of ever coming clean.
Then one day, my parents came to visit quite unexpectedly. I was at class, so they knocked on my friends’ door instead. And darn them, they came right out & asked my mom if I was a twin. And of course she answered honestly because she’s a lot less devious than I am. :peekaboo
But to date, that is my biggest, most successful, & longest-running lie. I could have kept them believing it, too, if it hadn’t been for those meddling parents! :steamin
Now for you…what’s the best, worst, or maybe just funniest lie you’ve ever told?
