When A Lie Works

“What are you doing, Dad?”

“Looking for your turtle.”

“By falling in the bushes?”

“I didn’t fall.”

“Yes, you did – I saw you. You lost your balance and fell.”

“Naw, I did it on purpose – hoping to scare your turtle out of hiding and make him run from the bushes.”

“Not only are you bad liar, but turtles can’t really run. Hey! — there’s my turtle!”

“See, Son — I told you. Now help your old man up.”
