In one of our recent conversations, my friend said, “My Daddy told me that you can lock up a thief, but you can’t lock up a liar.” A profound observation if I must say so myself! We can substantially count numerous liars that we interact with or have known. Some of the poetic liars claim that they “do not lie, they merely shade the truth.” Ouch …that cliché hurts as much as their lies do!
I always advised my kids, “Tell the truth so you will not have to manage lies.” If only I could invent a serum that would prevent lies, I would be rich; filthy rich! Until then, maybe I will chant the childhood slogan, “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” Oh my, look at all the scorched pants!
