George Washington, age 10, hat in hand: "Father, I cannot tell a lie. It was I who cut down the cherry tree."
Me, age 10, eyes cast down, tongue poking my cheek out: "I don't know who ate the last donut. I don't! Really! I am not lying!"
And I haven't gotten any better at it either.
Integrity is a Gift of Fat.
I wish I could say that my integrity comes naturally to me, that it has always been clear to me that Honesty Is The Best Policy, but unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.
I suck at lying.
And that's the truth!
