Work In Progress


How many times a day do you lie? Once? Twice? Never? I consider myself a person who sticks to the truth. I don't exaggerate, I don't make things up, I don't Wait. Stop. See, I just did it again. It sneaks up on me like that! I don't lie about important things, and so I think I don't lie at all. Which of course is a total lie. Here are a few samples of my lying from today only:

"No, it's a work-iPhone, it's impossible to download Angry Birds on it."
"Yes, I've studied for the written (driver's license) test. I can take it on Friday, no problem."
"I'm really starting to like the look of this."
"No, it's fine."
"But ten pages of math really isn't that much."
"By Wednesday? No problem."
"I'm really sorry I missed your call."
"Mommy's working, sweets."

So. I'm a work in progress, that's for sure. How about you? Tell any lies today? No? Really? Not even a little one? Oh, come ON.

I lie all the time when I tell myself that everything's going to be okay.

I also lie to myself in a more latent way, by not letting myself realize my potential. A lie in another way perhaps, but still a lie.

Also, just lied and told someone that I had one Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for breakfast. I had two.

Is the first one global warming related? Because otherwise I had you down as someone who'd say that everything's going to be ok and believes that it will?

I never lie about Reese's. They're too precious.

Yes. First lie was that I'd be out the door before 7am and it is now 7:50... Bye.

Glad to hear it, Denise. It feels much better when you guys are doing it too.
