Lying Liars

Parents are such liars.

We lie to our children...

"When I was your age, I never talked back to my parents!"

We lie to our spouses...

"No dear, I didn't watch the latest episode of Lost. I'll wait until we can watch it together."

We lie to each other...

"We'll have to get the kids together for a play date. I'll call you."

We lie to ourselves...

"Just one more hour of blog reading, and then I'm going to bed."

What lies have you told lately?

I'm not sure how that porn got on our computer. I must have accidentally downloaded it.

"just a sec!" is what I say all the time. My son calls me on it, though. "your second is up," he says. What a wise guy.

Well, compared to that guy in the last post, I am doing OK.

I have never once lied to my kid and said "Yep that swastika shirt looks great on you, buddy boy!"

My 8yo - Mom what is herpes?

Me - It's a sexually transmitted disease.

Her - What's sexually?

Me - I have no idea. I'll look it up and get back to you.

I try very hard not to lie to my kids. The result? Family members tell me to lie more to hide my disgust with work, etc.

Besides, lying to my son is like going up against a lie-detector machine.

Ouch ... you were a little rough on my toes.

How about, "Sure son, I'll play. I just need a little while to finish some stuff."

"Yes, it's a secure fax. Send it on over."

Yep. Aimed at my doctor. I guess I lie to my doctor, too. I've convinced myself that it's okay to do that, because the bottom line is that it's my health, not his.

Yep, I lie to myself too.
