Saturday 9: Liar, Liar. Pants on Fire!


1. What is the last "white" lie that you told? I told our choir director I couldn't make practice because I had a dinner meeting. Truthfully, I was going out to dinner with friends.

2. Can you forgive a liar? It depends on what the lie is about. For example, if I had a boyfriend tell me that he wasn't cheating on me, and he was, out the door he goes!

3. Do you tend to exaggerate or underestimate? All the time.

4. Do you hold a grudge? You would think, with my Sicilian heritage, that grudges would be in my blood. They used to be...but I've exorcised them. Life's too short to hold grudges.

5. What's the biggest lie you've ever told? Telling my parents that I was doing well financially, when I wasn't.

6. Are there times that you feel that it is okay to lie? A little white lie every now and then never hurt anyone.

7. Did you ever end a relationship because of lies? Relationships, no. Friendships, yes.

8. Do you think you can tell when someone is lying to you? Yeah...it's all in the eye contact and body language, my friends.

9. Have you been caught lying? Who hasn't?

Let me understand. If that cheating boyfriend told you the truth, all would be right? Just sayin'... ;)

You didn't lie. You DID have a dinner "meeting"....sort of.

Yaya said...

haha, "dinner meeting"!

I'm Italian too...we are known for our grudges. LOL! I tend not to hold them too because it isn't worth all the energy. Half the time the people we would hold grudges against just go on with their lives like nothing happened. You know what I mean? I get ajita and they would be moving on like nothing happened.

It sucks being caught in a lie. Makes everything uncomfortable.

Vickie: I haven't been caught in many lies, but when I have, it's been an awful experience.

NurseExec, Yaya and Mimi: I like your definitions of dinner "meetings."
