Does anyone else get accused of lying a lot?

I don’t know why…

Just the other day, someone asked me where I got my earrings.


I told them.

Yes. It DID involved a swamp festival in a bayou in the middle of no-where Louisiana (USA) where no one spoke English, but Cajun French. Yes there was a lot of alcohol involved.

That doesn’t mean that it isn’t the truth.

The way she reacted, you’d have thought that I said I wrestled a 12-foot alligator while drinking a shot of whiskey, and flirting with a sexy Cajun man. And that I was wearing a mini skirt and heels, with perfect hair/makeup. All at the same time.

I am sorry that my life is so different from yours that you just give THAT look and say:

“You sure do have a lot of STORIES.”


Just tattoo LIAR on my forehead and be done with it.

Tell me how you REALLY feel.

Go on.

    My (now ex) boyfriend didn’t really ask me alot about my childhood, so I never talked much about it. I’ve reached the place where I don’t feel the need to explain unless they ask. So every once in a while, when he’d ask how I knew ‘such and such’, I’d give him the short version. It wasn’t my fault it involved the amazon rainforest and living without electricity for a year..and hauling water from the creek. He would just looooook at me and then say, “You know, sometimes I’m not sure how much of this you exaggerate.” He wasn’t joking, either. I reached the point where I’d just say, “Look, it’s fine if you don’t believe me, but that’s the way it was and I’m not going to lie for believability’s sake. Hahah.”
