Hey, it’s been a minute! I am not afraid to admit that I am human, perfectly and consistently flawed. I consider myself an honest person, although, just like every other being there are things I am not proud of and wouldn’t like to bring to light. What’s a lie after all? White Lie? Blue lie? Black little Lie? Pretty Lie? We all lie at some point, whether it’s to cover up a silly mistake that might turn mega or to just make our mates feel great, everybody lies! Here’s a list of pretty little lies that almost every woman has told, some I have probably popped as well. Just a few f my favorite lies!
- I am fine!/ I am okay.
This is like the cardinal lie. As a persistent female for the last two decades, I can actually verify that 98% of the time we say this, we are not fine. I mean, if I am really fine, would I need to back it up with saying it all the time? I use this particular phrase to shut someone down, anyways does it really matter to you whether I am okay or not? And, even if I went ahead and told you some of the perennial young adulthood issues I am going through, would you care enough to listen? This lie is usually followed up closely by the response, “Nothing”.
- I’ll call you back
Oh boy! Who even calls back? I use this line to get out of a probably boring conversation or simply because I don’t like people in my personal space. Personally, I get anxious over phone calls, just text. I mean, I’ll get the message just the same. Unless it’s family, business or some damn good money, I do not call back. Sometimes I feel like calling, especially in the wee hours of the night is really offensive, just my opinion, and that infringes my privacy. Worse still, a person who calls to ask who you are, aaarrrggghh, that really sets me off. So if you need me, I’m only one text away, and yes, super girl has a lot on me.
- You look good.
This is a hard one. To be honest, if someone isn’t like my really close friend it is very hard to tell them there nails are scary or the neon skirt doesn’t go too well with pumpkin shirt or that they look trashy rather than sexy. I always console myself with ‘whatever floats your boat’ I wouldn’t want to be Crazy Susan who bursts everyone’s bubble. If you feel good in it, rock it.
- I’ve had enough.
I’ll leave this one here. Food, ice-cream, intimacy, my favorite chips, pizza, chocolate…at some point we all bring this one up.
5. I’ll be there.
Sorry, but I’ll probably cancel last minute. I guess I’m not the only one who loves being in their own space. I am just not an outgoing person, and I am not a huge fan of social interactions. I don’t like opening up to people, and I don’t like answering to the question, “What have you been up to?” I know its quite disappointing to some people, but well, appreciate it the next time I actually show up.
What is your favorite lie?
