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?

  1. Brilliant take on it. I’d say the prompt title is a bit nonsense, except I think the same chap (I think) also does one called Fibbing Friday, so they act as a good foil. Some of the blogs I follow write responses, but I never got into it.

  2. When dispensing truth, my biggest concern is that I’m not knee-jerking. If my thoughts are mature, I’ve turned them over looking to see if it’s me or s/he, I feel it best to get it out, else feel a bit of a liar. But yes, you are on it, you cannot tell a child his momma ran away because he is so-o-o ugly, and you cannot tell a strange lady she, um, wears her blouse proudly, except with utmost care. Good thoughts, sir.
