An Observation About Lying

HSP Observations

Look, I do tell lies. I think being truthful at all times would be an unmitigated disaster. If someone asks me what I think about their new dress – which, to my taste, is the most hideous piece of clothing I’ve ever seen – and they obviously LOVE their new garb, I’m going to say “ooh, wow, where did you buy it?” in my most enthusiastic voice. My opinion doesn’t matter and was not the point of the question anyway: the point is that they have a new dress, are very thrilled with it, and want to share their excitement.

Do note, however, that I would not say “ooh how beautiful, I want one too”. I do try to lie as little as possible.
