Did you ever tell a lie?

Do you remember any whoppers you told as a child?

Well I must confess...I was a little liar when I was a child.

I am not proud of this, it is just the truth LOL

When I was in kindergarden I told all my new friends that I was a real princess who lived in a real castle.  Then when they wanted to come over and see the moat, I had to make up other lies to keep them away.  Like the fact that I had a pet dragon that would eat anyone who came on the property, except me cuz I was a Princess...   


I also told my first grade teacher that I was allergic to milk.  Everything was fine until Friday when we had Chocolate milk and icecream for dessert.  She wouldn't let me have any.  I had to get a note from my Mom saying I was only allergic to white mild...Lie....I wasn't about to tell my Mom I had lied to my teacher!!! I went all year watching the other kids enjoy these treats and got would think that would cure me right?  But NO!!!! 

When I was in 4th grade and hated to go to school I would tell my mom that I had a headache and a stomache ache.  ONe day she got tired of the lies and said I could stay home, but my dad would be taking me to the doctor.  Now you have to understand that my Dad never missed work.  Not even when he was feeling bad. He was a preacher....

I being the little actress (liar) agreed that I should go. 

My Dad took me to the doctor and I gave quite a performance.  Whenever the doctor examined me I yelled out in fake pain everytime he touched my stomach.

When my doctor left the room for a moment , my Dad seeing through my act warned me that I had better be sick and not faking it.

When the doctor came back into the room he had a very serious expression on his face.  He asked my Dad if he could take me to the hospital right away because he feared my appendix was going to rupture.

My Dads anger turned quickly to concern and rushed me to the hospital.

And here I am thinking, Oh no!  I am not really sick at all!" 

But if I told that I was faking it I would be in trouble!

I stayed in the hospital for 4 days as they were waiting on a childrens specialist to treat me. 


All the kids in my class made me Get Well cards.

Finally when the specialist showed up he told my parents that I was just fine and that maybe I had just gotten a bug or something....I knew better

I felt so bad lying to my parents like that and I will tell you now that it cured me from lying again. 

Today I am one of the most honest people you will ever meet.


I learned my lesson at the age of eight.

Liars will be found out.

The Truth shall set you free! 

Plus you don't have to keep track of what you say, if it is the truth you will remember.

 Always tell the truth! I will, Barbara

Cute story. Barb. ;-)))) Well, what I do remember was punching Georgie Petrowski in ths stomach for giving me chicken pox! That was in kidnergarden. I was also a brute with my brother when he took things from my room. So I am confessing my temper rather than lies. BTW, I can't remember the last time I hit anyone! ;-) Blessings, Sassy ;-)

This was a great entry Barbara. We do tell some good "whoppers" of lies when we are kids. Its usually easy to spot too because when we have to repeat the story again, its hard to if it is a lie.

Oh, you awful little stinker you!!  Wonder how much that little hospital stay cost your parents?  Glad you learned  from it!  I only remember trying to tell lies AFTER I was in trouble to try to get out of the punishment.  -  Barbara

Did you ever tell your parents the truth?  I was quite a stinker myself.  One day after I'd been married a while we were sitting around with the folks, coming clean about things we thought we'd gotten away with, with a lie.  Like the time I was supposed to be at the drive in movies and come straight home, & a carload of my girlfriends and I drove in to Oklahoma to a baseball game & I hit a deer! (She got up & ran off).  I told my folks I'd gone out east of town & turned around & hit it then.  They knew I'd gone to OK.  Mom never would tell me how.  I swear she had me tailed all the time. LOL.  My regular lie when I was a kid was telling my cousins & friends I  was adopted.  They all knew better, but I convinced a couple of them.
