Daily Prompt: Pants on Fire
by michelle w. on August 23, 2013
What was the last lie you told? Why did you tell it?
I try my best not to lie. I prefer honesty. I’m human and am sure to slip up sometimes. For me, I come more near just not telling something than lying about it.
Example: My hubby keeps a pretty close eye on me; especially when it comes to my medications. There have been times when I needed a refill, but felt that we couldn’t afford it at the time, so I just didn’t tell him. He caught on to what I was doing and gave me a good chewing-out.
I still do it sometimes though.
Another Example: There are times when one of my daughters will tell me something and ask me to keep it secret. We, me and my girls, don’t like to tell Grandma, my mom, stuff that we know will upset her. I just don’t tell her. Sometimes I have to ‘beat around the bush’ when she asks me something straight out, but I don’t lie to her; I just don’t tell her the full truth.
