The Lie

I don’t ask very many people direct questions anymore, however when I do, I listen carefully to the answer they give.

The lie people tell is that they never lied. They just avoid the question.

An example: “Did you give my number to person X?”

“I haven’t texted person X in years.”

It sounds like an answer and later they will say smiling, “I never lied.”

Later they will ask after no contact with me, “Have I done something wrong?”

“You? No never…”
