An anonymous reader sent me this link to the top five things people lie about:
- 1. Age
2. Alcohol Consumption
3. Sexual History
4. Changed Appearance
I am very pleased to see that I haven’t lied about any of them.
Well, except no. 1 when I was little in order to get into bars.1 Oh, and no. 5 a few times when I didn’t feel like answering the usual questions you get after you say you’re a writer. “Have you published anything?” “Would I have heard of you?” “Can you set me up with your agent?” I said I was a dental assistant. Oddly, that didn’t inspire any questions at all.
How about youse lot? Any of you lied about the top 5? What are your most common lies?
Feel free to be anonymous.
