I am an extremely honest individual. I don't lie. I just don't. Not to say that I have NEVER lied. I mean, mostly when I was a kid, I'd look for loopholes, so it wouldn't require me to lie. Example, my mom would ask, "Emma, did you do your homework?" I would answer, "My English and Math are all done!" Now, I didn't happen to mention that I still have Biology or Geography... So, I have done the loophole thing or the "answer a question to avoid a question", just for the sake of NOT completely lying.
So, a few weeks ago when I was filling out forms for my Concealed Firearms Permit I sort of fudged on one "fill-in-the-blank". Not that I would ever LIE about my past history, criminal activity (lack of it) or anything of great importance like that.
But I LIED about my weight. I wasn't going to put down my actual weight. Besides, I figured I needed it to match my Driver's License, right? And my DL info was filled out quite a while back, and I probably fudged that figure a little too. Plus, anytime anyone ever looks at it I wouldn't want them to see how much I weigh. Yikes!
And generally speaking, whenever I do gain/lose weight, there isn't that much difference in my face anyway, and it is after all just a "mug shot". My face doesn't change all that much. Nope. My FAT is always located in the "central region"; y'know, between the boobage and knees.
Afterwards, I thought about it, and wondered, "is there anything else I lie about?" I pondered that the entire way home. Nope. I couldn't think of one other thing. I just cannot tell a lie...unless it's about my weight!
What about you? Do you think "little white lies" are ok? Have you ever "fudged" your weight a little? It's okay, I won't tell on you, if you promise not to tell on me.
