Lies

Since I’ve been such a bad blogger lately that I think I’m going to make it a goal to blog once a day for a week and see what happens – even a short post – so I don’t feel like I have to write some big long thing (who likes reading those anyway?) with photos to post something.

Today’s post is about lies. I have had several discussions this week with friends about lies, how often people tell them, what lies are acceptable and what are not, etc. I was surprised to learn that some people think it’s okay to lie about casual things – like when you’re tired and don’t have the energy to meet a friend to tell them “Sorry, I have to work today” instead of “Sorry, I stayed up all night and am too tired to have lunch now.” I decided to monitor my own lies. So far I’ve lied once in the past two days. It happened today when one of my students said, “Hi! How was your weekend?” and I said, “Good! How was yours?” I mean, what was I going to say, “I had a horrible weekend, PMS, cried for hours.You?”?

  1. way too deep! yes, lying isn’t such a black/white topic when you get right down to it, is it?

  2. p.s. you could write a short story about lying.–>
