That is me, good or bad, I find it almost impossible to lie. Sure, if someone asks, if I like the dress they are wearing and I don't, I don't blurt that out. I say something positive. "I love that color." "What pretty buttons." "A great length."
If someone asks me about someone else's private life, I would never share the information, and usually I can say, just that but there are times, I have to simply say, "I don't know." I know, it is silly to obsess about such things and I guess I don't go that far but I do cringe, when I am put into a situation, where the truth is going to cause a problem.
That brings me to blogging. We write all our comments on each other blogs but there are two situations that put me in a bind. One is when I have nothing of import to say. I end up writing, "It looks great," or something similar. Truth is not the issue but I feel like I am copping out and shortchanging the person who worked so hard on the dish. The other is when I say, I plan to make something which I honestly plan to do, and then I realize, I am over committed and can't do it. I am sure the person is not sitting, waiting to hear how it turned out but I still feel a tiny, tiny bit guilty.
I don't want this to sound like a big deal. It is not but it is a truth. I do get hung up over the truth. I want to be honest and pride myself on the quality. I just want it to be easier.
