A List of Lies



The writing prompt is a list of lies I regularly tell. The problem is.. not IF I have lies- but how MANY of the lies I can remember are lies and not the truth. (sometimes if you tell a lie often enough – you start to think it is the truth.)  These are lies I tell to my husband, my kids, and…generally everyone.



  • No, I definitely do NOT eat Swiss Cake Rolls (frozen) most nights while catching up on my blog reading.IMG_0196[1]
  • I OWN a pair of underware without a hole in it… somewhere.
  • No, I did not just snap a picture of you from behind while you roll yourself on that scooter thing down Lowe’s …trying to be “manly”
  • No, I definitely do NOT obsess on “weigh in day” – to the point of weighing myself before and after I poop to see if I am skinnier.
  • If you play in dirty sink water, you will get pink eye.
  • I weigh about 130 lbs. (I actually put that on a government document with a strait face the other day.)
  • Yes, I DO own a shirt without a stain, I just chose not to wear it today.
  • Oh yeah… That food is not spoiled – you should take it for lunch tomorrow.
  • I showered. I just didn’t wash my hair.


There are so many more… so many many more. but, I really want to keep some blog readers.

Linking with Mama Kat’s writer’s workshop.  Thanks for the prompt.  It was fun!


  1. Um I tell some of those lies too :)

  2. Angela says:

    now the big question is if I tell those lies now, what lies did my mother tell me?

    p.s. waterless shampoo is a god-send;)

  3. Kim says:

    this made me giggle! Not sure I am brave enough to do a similar list :)

  4. CJ says:

    And I thought I was the only one!! I will NOT weigh myself until after I’ve, uh, done the deed for the day. I just can’t do it!

  5. Ahahahahahhaha!

    I tell this lie too:
    I showered. I just didn’t wash my hair.


  6. Cindy says:

    Love it!!!

  7. Kristen says:

    No, that is not chocolate on my breath at 7:30AM, girls. Mommy would never eat candy that early and neither should you. It’s just not good for you!
    I’m pretty sure I believe this one after saying it so much.

  8. Brandy says:

    Hilarious post! I needed a good laugh today. :)

  9. Amanda says:

    Not a lie, I think we could hang.

  10. I don’t even weigh myself before the poop…mope, to until everything has been squeezed out

  11. Katherine says:

    “I OWN a pair of underware without a hole in it… somewhere.”

    I own more than THAT! :)
