sometimes people tend to lie blatantly about things. the say one thing, but in the back of their mind, they mean a totally different thing. parents are the best at this.
girl asked by another girl if she likes a certain boy. audible answer, "no. why would i?" inner answer, "oh do i ever. i love him."
parent asks if child did homework. their answer; "yuuup.", real answer; "i forgot it at school. plus, i would never do it anyway."
it's just rotten human nature the way we work. sometimes we can be lovely and wonderful. other times we are down right horrid and have no direction.
the best lies are the ones that we say to ourselves.
we are most certainly not bad. but we act in ways that are stupid.
