Today – Some of life’s little lies

Yes I know this is just the opposite of yesterday, but it was all I could think of on the way home last night. They kept running through my head. So here they are. Some of these I’ve heard and some I’ve told myself:

“You look fine.”

“I’m going to run to the store, I’ll be right back”

“These shoes? I only paid $20.”

“I love you.”

“I’ll pay you back Friday.”

“It’s not your fault.”

“Let me check on that and I’ll call you right back.”

“Time heals all wounds.”

“The cold front will arrive Thursday.”

“If you need anything just call me.”

“That’s the best deal you’re gonna find!”

“Everybody has a little junk in their house.”

“I’ll only have one.”

“Homosexuality is a choice.”

“Liberals are crazy.”

“Conservatives are crazy.”

“You can’t fight city hall.”

“This is just temporary.”

“Her? I don’t even know her.”

“I didn’t hock it. I haven’t seen it.”

“Yea, I went to work today. They just let us leave early.”

“It was just a wrong number.”

“Of course I have insurance.”

“I’m fine.”

“He’s perfect for you!”

“She’s not a bitch at all!!”

“I’m sorry.”

“I won’t tell a soul.”

“It pays to be nice.”

“I’m not that fat.”

“I don’t care what he does.”

“I don’t have time.”

“We just talked all night.”

“I’m stupid.”

“Thanks! It’s just what I wanted.”

“I’m not pregnant.”

“I’m sorry I missed your call. The phone quit ringing just as I got to it.”

“You’re not old enough.”

“You’re too old for that.”

“I’ll pay that off in full at the end of the month.”

“If I eat this candy bar now, I’ll skip dinner.”

“I’ll start exercising on Monday.”

“I’ll take care of it tomorrow.”

“I just don’t have time.”

“If he does it again, I’ll leave.”

Big or small lies are lies. The really bad ones are the ones we tell ourselves.
