What was the last lie you told to get out of something? Mine was that my "head hurt" to get out of my grandparents cigarette smoked house!
I told my wife the dinner was good, even though it was repulsive and hard to keep down, lol!! Had I said what I thought, I would have had to sleep on the couch or outside with the dogs, so I told a little white lie in an effort to get out of sleeping alone, lol.
I told her, "no, those pants don't make your butt look big". Just avoiding a confrontation.
