HONESTY IS NOT ALWAYS THE BEST POLICY

But I am giving it a try anyway.

I have to tell the truth.

I mean I HAVE to tell the truth.

It's a horrible thing about me.

When I was a kid I would hear a lie cross my lips with no pre meditation.

I fought long and hard to rid myself of that habit.

Not that it wasn't frigging entertaining and funny as hell.

I mean an elephant stepped on my foot right! I got several gullable people to believe me......even with a known rep for storying telling. I was good.

Still, I wanted that stuff for the page and not wasted on some group of lunatics.

I trained myself to tell the truth. I just tell the truth. It is automatic, even to cops and now doctors.

Lets say, I might be able to go stealth in a game of poker but a full on sneaky lie to save my .......wait I can lie.

I just decide I better let these docs talk to each other for the best interest of zach's care.

Did you belive that bullshit about me not being able to lie?

I still got it!

Sometimes you have to lie to get to the truth.
Someone really smart said that once, don't know who.
