The “Art” of Lying

I was inspired to post about this topic over the weekend, after going out one night and trying to find a way to get out of a birthday party the next night. I was invited to a party that I just naturally assumed my partner would attend, which he decided he didn’t want too (he’s an adult, he doesn’t have to go if he doesn’t want too). I felt like I had to attend because not only had I promised at least I would show up. I also had to drop off at the party this expensive drink that someone else has brought and left my house -.- The main reason I don’t want to go is because the birthday guy is a little … strange, especially when he drinks.

Now I am not encouraging lying by any stretch of the imagination, because if you are like myself. If I lie, well, I am just a bad liar. Mainly because I start panicking that I’ll get caught and it goes downhill from there. I am also not asking how about my readers “Art of Lying”…Unless of course you do want to share!

It was interesting to me though how people will lie and how they avoid getting caught (there may have been some alcohol involve) because now we all know how they lie. So here are some of the “Art Tips” I discovered.

  • Food poisoning is the best to go with, because if you say you have the “flu” or a sore throat. As a general rule you will then have to have a “sniffle” for the next few days.
  • Don’t go out during the day or that night, especially when you live in a small town.
  • Avoid ringing anyone, text if you must.
  • Don’t post on social media. Don’t even take a photo to show “how sick” you are.
  • Try to remember a time when you were sick with the actual illness and try to remember how you felt and what you went through.

*Disclaimer* I am not encouraging people to lie =P

Cheer Up Buttercup

I am going through the wars today! My leg started to play up, I think I might (just might) be coming down with a cold and I am a lady so…yeah…let’s not get into that one =P So to cheer myself up I have been watching videos of cute animals pretty much all day. So I thought that I’d share some with you =D

This one hasn’t got your “average” dogs and cat in it too!

 

Cure what ails you <3

This is my response to the “Daily Post” question:

If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?”

Without a doubt I would want to find some kind of cure for Emphysema. I had to watch my Grandfather die from it and I can say with all of my heart, I would not wish that kind of death on my worst enemy. Even if it meant that as the time neared, it made the breathing easier and better, that’s all I would want. No one should have to die like that.

Share Your World – 2015 Week #20

Share Your World

What is the most important thing that you ever learned? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)

No matter how genuinely nice you are and want to help others. For every nice genuine person, there is probably two or three “crazy” nasty type people and most people will let them win. You have to learn to be your own best friend and realise that sometimes you need to take a step back and take a step out and that is absolutely more than okay.

What feeds your enthusiasm for life? 

The goodness in people and the beauty that is in nature. I think that I lost that for a while to be honest. I was so lost and trapped in a whole heap of darkness a few year backs that it was a real struggle to see any goodness. In all honesty, I think it was watching the live feeds on the birth of a baby Ostrich, that brought me back. It’s hard to explain to people.

What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane commercial or private flight?

I have not really had a good flight experience, I get all the motion sicknesses so every flight I have to the drugs that make me sleepy so I sleep right throughout. Except for the one time I flew to America, it was over 12 hours and I woke up a few times during the flight. I always have an urge to kiss the ground whenever I fly and we land.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?

I would love to explore and try to find the great city of Atlantis, but if that was impossible. I would love to explore Greece, Rome and Egypt. The ancient stories just do something for me.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
