Life is such a funny mess. People accuse you when you lie and they do not believe you when you serve them with the hot truth.
So, lying is an art and I have mastered every type of it. From white lies to protective lies, I have said it all. But one certain incident happened which made me reconsider the need to lie and now the need has decreased extremely.
Yesterday I bunked college to be with my guy and we were driving across the city in his bike. Now parents have this sixth sense or whatever you call it to be. They have to call at all the wrong times and have to give your intestines a quick squeeze. Mothers are strange but in an adorable way. If you fail to pick up their call within the first ring or two they end up thinking that you are either murdered or are being raped. I finally managed to force my dude to park the bike some place where I could pick up my Moms call. I picked up and the conversation went something like this-
Me- Hey Mom!
Mom- What is this? Why can’t you pick up when I call? You made me so tensed. This world is not a good place and you are so far away from us. Where are you?
(Now normally in such a situation, I would have replied with something like “Class got over by 11 and I was on my way back” or “Don’t you know I am in College”. But this time something caught my tongue and made it speak out the truth.)
Me- Oh nothing Mom! I am just enjoying a long drive across the city with my boyfriend. Awesome time!
Mom- Yeyeye! Anyways I just called to say that our neighbour’s daughter in law had a baby girl. Call you later. Bye Mole!
Me- Bye Mom!
So you get my point. People have been lied to so many times that now they fail to accept the truth. Or maybe trust played an important factor here. But again their have been instances where I actually told my friends the absolute truth, which they take to be a ridiculous joke from my side.
