10 Lies That I Tell In A Day
“The rest of the girls pretended not to notice. That’s just what best friends do.” Sara Shepherd
In my life, honesty is not always the best policy. Being a Sagittarian, I am always pulling my feet out from between my teeth. Sometimes”the little white lie’ is the best way to go. I think white lies come from a sense of compassion and not deceit. Here are some of my usual repertoire. They might sound familiar – especially if you know me.
In Starbucks when they ask for my name for the coffee, I say Shane. My name is Jayne but I just feel like mixing it up.
l’ll be there in five minutes. I think that is everyone’s lie followed by the traffic in this city is really bad. Especially because I left late.
I think there is something wrong with my phone. I never got the message, text, email etc. Sorry, I did not see this text. My phone died. I left my phone in the car or downstairs or the ringer is off. I called you back. Maybe your phone is broken. Your breaking up, I’ll call you back. I thought I answered that email. Oh sorry, I forgot to hit send.
It will be ok. No it really won’t, it will be different but you can not say that.
Of course I remember you. I have the worst memory. I say this every day to someone.
It’s not you, it’s me. This classic break up line really does hold up. I also use it as a reason for my germophobic actions.
You look great in that outfit. You gained weight? I can’t tell. It is so cute. Of course you don’t look fat.
No officer, I have no idea why you pulled me over.
I don’t watch much TV. Since I wasn’t allowed to watch as a kid, I’m not used to it except every mindless reality show especially the new CNN..
I would never say anything about you. Of course she did not tell me, I figured it out for myself.
