    I know you weren't asking me, but I say that it would not be lying in that case.

    Personally, I try not to as much as possible, but I do find myself telling white lies occasionally, mostly because it's a situation where lying is a lot less complicated and easier to explain than telling the truth.
    Yep - My parents and other family members. All the time - when I really don't feel like explaining myself, or dealing with someone else's emotional response.

    Why? Because it'll just complicate relationships with people and create foul situations, and none of it will be good for anyone. In the end I'll still do what I do, only, they will spend their time trying to change who I am. It'll be a lost cause and the price is one soul, medium rare.

Who was it, Mark Twain that said that if you tell the truth, you'll never have to remember anything? That's the way I look at it. I don't want to have to scramble, trying to remember what I told somebody. If I always tell them the truth, it's a non-issue.

    That being said, if my friend comes up and asks me if this dress makes her look fat, I'm going to say, "No, it looks great on you!" or "No that haircut is fabulous!" No need to deliberately hurt anyone.
    I lie every day because invariably somebody will ask how I am and I say fine, when in fact my hands hurt or my knee hurts. It is easier then telling a complete stranger my life story.

    Well, see, I don't consider that a lie, Mason. I mean, I don't know how old you are, but me? I am sore every day. But if I admitted it, I'd turn into my ex mother-in-law. So I don't think that's a lie. I think a lie would be telling someone your other car is a Ferrari, or that you are in the CIA, or something like that. Not hurting someone's feelings, or telling them how poorly you really feel, isn't a lie - at least in my opinion.

    That is a nice way of looking at it, but it is not telling the truth, so that is a lie, but I have no problem with it at all, and I mean AT ALL.

    I am 46 with arthritis and many other pains. That is old enough.

    I always lie.

    One of the great paradoxes.
