Reading a post by Mr Bump about ‘Truthful Tuesday’, I got to thinking about certain questions to which it is very difficult to be totally honest and tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The ‘little white lie’ sometimes has to prevail.
Here are a few examples, but you can probably think of better ones.
How fast do you think you were going, sir?
Does my bum look big in this?
Where do babies come from?
Is this going to hurt?
If we were totally honest about what we were thinking all the time, it would be very hurtful, or would it?
