Dishonesty is the best policy....

I told SuperNan to lie to me the other day.

It was wonderful, and from now on, I have a policy of comple dishonesty in my life. I never again want to be told the truth about anything.

My grandad left each of the grandkids a small amount of money. My grandmother requested that we do something of importance with it, that would last our whole lives.

Well, I already own an heirloom guitar. I have a computer. I have pretty much everything I need right now.

So, I told SuperNan that I wasn't sure, but I wanted her to pretend that buying a digicam is a good idea. I won't have it for the rest of my life, but I do love pictures and I do love taking them.

So, she lied! It was wonderful, and she was ever so good at it. Or, maybe she wasn't lying at all? Who knows! The great thing is that on the outside, my mom said "Oh, Honey, that's a wonderful idea!" and I have no idea what she's thinking on the inside.

And so now on, any time I do anything, I want my family to pretend it's nice. Like, the next time I try on a dress? Say things like "Wow! You have a great, uber-petite ass! And your legs aren't hammy at all!" Rather than "Holy Ham Legs, Batman".

Or, the next time I bring someone home to meet the family? Say things like "Wow, Honey! He's great! He's so nice! And look, he's almost on time! You should keep him!" Rather than "Are you kidding me? This is what you could find to date in the big city?"

Yeppers. A policy of dishonesty. A strict one.

I, personally, think it's a great idea.

Well, you do... so why don't they say it now?

See, if you brought me home, they'd say that for sure. *grin*

Sounds like you have a pretty cool relationship with your mom!

I do think the digicam is a good idea. But you should get a semi-good one, not a crappy one like mine. I'll help you shop. :)
