  1. Lie? Have I ever to you lot?
    Unfortunately no. I haven’t.
    And as naive and stupid as I may sound.
    That’s just me.
    And due to my deteriating memory.
    Coz if I’m questioned or reminded in the future what I may have said. I only have to think of the truth. And know that that’s what I would’ve said way back when. This is the logic I live by.

  2. My whole life has been a lie. I piled one on top of the other and made them so real that they became the person that is me. Somewhere inside I may know the truth but I will deny it; that is not the person I am. If you knew the truth about me you would hate me. I, who have been your mentor, you would call a liar.
    So the lie has become the truth and the truth has blended with the lie, with both locked in the same embrace.

    • Lying about having a learning disability to get attention and popularity is not something to be considered “cool”. If you do have it, that’s different, but to say you have it to get attention and because it is “cool”, that is disgraceful and demeaning to people who actually have to live and struggle with the real thing.

      • Exactly. I have ADHD, and it’s not all fun and games. It makes it hard for me to concentrate on stuff other than what I want to. Or concentrate, period.

  3. If I could lie and get away with it I would say that I am filthy rich (Which I am not). And that I have all the latest electronics and a tv in my room(I also do not have any of that I do not even have a phone and I am 13)I would also say that I have my own horse and I am related to Carry Underwood the country song singer.

  4. If I could get away with a lie, I would tell people that I was an international spy. I would travel the world on secret missions, & make it my duty to dave people from being in danger.

  5. If I could lie and get away with it, I would tell people that I was an international spy. I would tell them that I go on secret missions & that it was my duty to save people from danger and keep them out of harm, from the hands of evil.

  6. If I could lie to anyone and get away with it, I would lie to the college application and say that I have a disability that caused me to stammer and lost my confidence and self-esteem, and that I got over it so they would want me more.
