Lying

I think it's safe to say that we're all opposed to lying, right? I mean, honesty really is the best policy...in most cases.

But sometimes it's okay to lie.

Here are some of those cases:

  1. on your driver's license: yeah I really do weigh 115lbs or did at one point...and uh I'm "close"
  2. at someone's good news that honestly is quite boring to you Oh my gosh...so excited!! yawn...
  3. When a friend shows up to something and asks if she looks okay - it's too late so the answer is yes
Here are some cases when it's okay for your husband to lie to you:
  1. instead of saying "oh wow. you were kind of a geek in HS weren't you?" you could say, "awe...you were...cute" and move on.
  2. instead of telling your beautiful wife that her breath smells like death - maybe suggest an otter pop or piece of gum
  3. instead of saying, "really? you're going to wear that?" in response to a CUTE outfit - just smile and say "you look cute" or "I love when you wear ______"
  4. instead of calling your wife a wolverine due to lack of eyebrow waxage - maybe make her a spa appointment without telling the spa staff that your wife needs some major help

What situations did I miss??

Um I like the fact that you think Otter Pops cure bad breath! hahaha

Here's my lie: When people invite you over for dinner and you just don't feel like going, just lie and say your kid is teething and that you don't think it's a good idea this weekend, but maybe another night! Works like a charm everytime :)

My eyebrows too cause me to look like a wolverine and it makes me so happy when I ask Bo did you notice how gross my eyebrows are and he says 'i didn't notice'. I dont think he is smart enough to lie there but if it was, he is a smart boy.
