Things it's okay to lie about
I played in the mookie last night. I had another night of losing. I played a few sit and go's - lost them all. I'm on a real downswing. Hopefully things pick up or else I'm gonna be busto soon. Thank god for Full Tilt sending me ad money every month.
CNN came out with a list of things that it's okay to lie about.
I'll just post the top ten.
1. The number of sexual partners you've had plus or minus five.
Well, if you have to lie about how many partners you've had, I would argue that five isn't going to make much of a difference. If you going to lie, why stop at five? If you have 180 partners, is laying about five going to make any difference? Plus, is that really a conversation that EVER needs to take place? Why even have the "how many people have you slept with" conversation. I think it's a rather unneccessary piece of information that has NO bearing on the your current relationship. I never ask anyone cause I really don't want them to ask me.
2. That you totally just washed your hands.
Huh? I assume this one is meant for guys because half of them don't wash their hands after they go to the bathroom. I Dunno. I've never had anyone ever ask me if I just washed my hands. Oh, maybe it's the kind of question you ask someone when they are cooking with their bare hands in which case I wish they'd rather just use those plastic gloves or something.
3. That the reason for your bags is not, in fact, that you were out late partying but that you wre up late reading "Twilight".
Um - yeah - good one. In my partying heyday I was rather upfront about my partying. I was rather proud of it. I was never sly and coy like I should have been. I pretty much let the world know (even people at work) that I was out all night. Pretty dumb of me now that I think of it.
4. That you're naturally toned.
GAY! Why pretend that you are naturally toned? I think it sounds better to say that I'm going to the gym. It shows that I'm motivated and not lazy. The "natural" thing is over-rated. I like a guy that sweats it out in the gym.
5. How much you paid for that (ridiculously cheap) pair of shoes.
Oh yeah - I totally get this one. Nobody needs to know (especially a boyfriend or husband) that I spent WAY too much for my shoes. I'll just get yelled at. So, of course I'll lie about this one. I bet most women do.
6. How much you paid for that (ridiculously expensive) bag.
I disagree on this one. Bags/Purses are a status symbol. The name brand says it all. I don't want someone thinking I bought a knock off. I want them to know that I am sporting the latest and greatest one of a kind Louis Vuitton bag. (Unless of course there is a husband involved and he's paying the bills - in which case feel free to lie).
7. That your not planning on seeing "Marley & Me"
I don't know why anyone would care if I was going to see Marley and Me. I hate crying though and I know there is a dog in this movie, I know there are some tears that will be shed and I HATE crying. So, I really won't be going to see Marley and Me. But, do any of you guys really care what movie I'm going to see? I didn't think so.
8. That your favorite magazine is, duh, The New Yorker.
I'm not afraid to say that I've never ever seen or read an issue of the New Yorker. My favorite magazines are In Touch, Us Weekly and People. I guess this is the kind of lie someone with a high paying, high powered job would tell. I don't think anyone would believe me if I said the New Yorker was my favorite magazine anyway.
9. That you can not do a headstand in yoga class.
Um - I've never taken yoga - no comment. I don't know why not being able to do a headstand would make a difference?
10. That you made that lasagna yourself.
Sure - knock yourself out. If I had a husband or if I ever threw dinner parties, I'd probably lie about it. I hate cooking and I probably wouldn't be very good at it. What's the harm in lying about the lasana anyway??
So, that was the top ten list that they came out with.
What else do you think it's okay to lie about??????
