In 3rd grade, I told my teacher that I was working on a science fair project just so I could get out of math class and roam around the school unsupervised for an hour. I also used to pilfer Tootsie Rolls out of my Kindergarten teacher's desk where she naively kept the other children's medications. Pulling a "sickie" to get a mouthful of Tootise Rolls FTW.
I was an alarmingly devious child at times.

I am becoming quite good at lying to tell someone what they want to hear and leave me alone or to get what I want from them without interpersonal debt or suspicion of ulterior motives. The trick is to correlate the lie with something that is truthful. That way nothing becomes superficially suspicious and most won't think twice about it since the tendency of people is to only see what's on the surface. I don't know if this is a good thing. This is only in person though, of course, outside of my ISTP friend who I respect enough not to do that to and besides he's much too smart to easily fall for anything anyway ;P
After my parents got a divorce, I think my mom settled for the first person she found just so she could have someone. I dont think she is happy with her life. This makes me cry every time I think about it. But I only cry because I know its sad and that it should make me cry.
