Daily Prompt: Truth or Dare

Welcome to the daily prompts for 2014…here’s today’s prompt… is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?

Well…………that’s a slightly curly one.  There are times when bending the truth ever so slightly are fine.

When the phone rings and you’re just not in the mood to talk when you see who it is and you don’t answer it and then you say you weren’t home when the call came…hey there’s nothing wrong with that.

When a facebook message comes in and you don’t want to reply straight away, it’s fine to say you haven’t seen it, even though you’re read the full message on email.

Giving a cherub a different food/drink/whatever they’re asking for at school and saying that there isn’t any of what they want when there really is…well that’s fine.

However there’s a line on bending the truth.

When it comes to the law…yeah the truth is required.

It’s a simple matter of common sense as to what is bending the truth and what’s a little white lie and what is an absolutely ridiculous lie that nobody would believe.
