I had the thought today that I lie to SOMEBODY pretty much everyday for some reason, and if I said I only lied once a day on average, I’d be lying to you.
Often it’s something all parties know is a lie, because, really how else do you reply without seeming belligerent.
Sometimes I lie to make life a little easier for somebody else.
Once in a while I lie because someone wants me to do stuff I think is pointless bullshit, and I figure if I put it off enough, it will go away.
I generally don’t lie to protect myself against having fucked up. and so I like to think of myself as an honest man. But when I really think about it, I’m lying to myself.
