Liar Liar

City girls just seem to find out early how to open doors with just a smile.
A rich old man and she won't have to worry. She'll dress up all in lace and go in style.
Late at night a big old house gets lonely, I guess every form of refuge has its price.
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only given to a man with hands as cold as ice.
So she tells him she must go out for the evening to comfort an old friend who's feeling down.
But he knows where she's going as she's leaving, she’s headed for the cheating side of town.
You can't hide your lying eyes and your smile is a thin disguise.
I thought by now you'd realize, there ain't no way to hide your lying eyes. -LYING EYES (EAGLES)

We've all told a lie or two in our lives. We lie because we think some things are better left undone. We lie because the truth hurts. We lie because we just can't be bothered to dwell on the details. We lie because things are just easier that way. And some just lie for fun. I remember I once bluffed my best friend that my dad was working as a communist in Uzbekistan. I also bluffed my Math teacher that I won a green Kancil thru the Milo ad. I cheated in college and university papers, midterms and assignments. I had to *grin*. It's just the way the world works. I lie at work so I sometimes don't have to entertain idiots and annoying customers and colleagues. Because I had to. It's just easier that way. If you really think about it, lying is an art. How to come up with a believable and great lie. How not to get caught? How to be a good liar without ur face revealing it? Lying helps. Who's never told a lie before? Let me know.

I would not lie that I have not lied to anyone before. We all commit sins. It's just how big the lie is only.

"So our virtues Lie in the interpretation of the time." - Ironically one of Shakespeare's most misinterpreted lines.

Indeed lie is an art.... but a good lie need a good acting and thoughtful setup for it to be good.

You dont want to burst out laughing when you're telling a lie you can hide. You need to think about the event that might happen if you tell a lie. Setup a good story to support the lie.

We lie because we are afraid...afraid of disappointing others, afraid of our faults and short coming or afraid of being disliked....It tkes a lot of courage to stand up and tell the truth especially if it is a difficult one.
