Delayed Honesty

Will:  How was your day?

What I thought about saying:  Well, I didn’t do a single thing on my list.  The coyote returned IN BROAD DAYLIGHT to take Three More Chickens!  I have a sunburn on top of which, I am apparently allergic to spring because my head feels like the Animaniacs dropped an anvil on it and the cartoon birdies flying around are making me so dizzy I almost fainted in Sutherland’s.

What I actually said:  Good.  How was yours?

 

Truth is the most valuable thing we have, so I try to conserve it.  ~Mark Twain

At the very least I try to reserve it until after Will has had dinner.
