5 Things I lied about in 2016

It occurred to me the other day whilst I gave a little white lie to someone about how I was, that the human race, even though we will deny it, lies a whooooole bunch. Maybe not big lies. Y’no the “I once went on a date with Tom Hardy” kinda lies, but the little ones that we don’t even really consciously think of as lies. This got me thinking, and I thought it would be funny to admit 5 “little white lies” that I told last year. Here goes

1. “I am so sorry, I already have plans with my other half” 

Birthday Cake Amynoos

To someone I do not know very well upon being invited to her birthday drinks

2. “Oh thank you so much, it looks wonderful, how lovely, how kind, thank you”.

To a student offering me a “treat” they had bought from their native land. It did not look wonderful. It went in the bin when they left the room.

3. “Oh this t-shirt, yes I have had it a while.”

If by a while you mean since yesterday? Yes.

4. “I was really good, I just had soup for my lunch.”

Soup Amynoos

And a bread roll the size of my head. And a bag of crisps.

5. “Oh only about £20”

When asked about how much I had just spent in Lush.

£45. I had spent £45. On bath products.

Have you told any good little white lies? Please share them below in the comments!
