Can’t Handle The Truth?

Nope. There will be no jumping on couches today. Or any reenacting at play. But the truth is a big thing. So big they even test it at some places.

Yes or No. Color in the square. Do you always tell the truth?

Umm, anyone who says yes to that is a liar right there. Doesn’t that null and void the question?

If some cashier asks you how your day was or something like that, you say fine, whether or not it is, to get your stuff paid for and get going. Guess what? If it is not a fine day, that is a lie.

Date asks you if this makes them look fat. You say no no matter what. So in some cases, guess what? You lie.

And the biggest of all, you are a writer. You make crap up that totally isn’t true. Your character can get shot and stand back up with ease. No character ever takes a pee. And so on and so forth. As proved with my whole realistic spiel a while back, you must lie or it will be super boring.

So pfffffffffffft to anyone using that question on some stupid personality test. If you say yes, you are a liar, and if you say no, well then you are a liar because you admitted it. But then since you admitted it you told the truth, so would that make you a truthful liar? Oh how this could hurt the head.

I’d rather just make crap up and write away. A fine form of lying at my bay. And yep, I’ll always lie with the fat one, unless I crave a slap or want to get dumped.

Do you always tell the truth? Pssst, if you say yes, the cat may come after you.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

When writing for the newspapers, yes, honesty in full. In my journal, 100% pure and unabashed. In novels and poems… like a fantasy sometimes. A true vision in my mind captured on paper. In everyday life, honest is the best policy, and I do try to be honest in everything I say and do. But, there is room for kindness when honesty would be cruel…

    Yeah in most cases it is good, but cruelness and to save time it can be best to fib and be on your way.
