It’s My Birthday I’ll Lie If I Want To

I’m not a proponent of lying. I don’t like it when people lie. If they lie once, how do you know they’re not lying again? Lately, I’ve been thinking about what the definition of a lie really is. Is there some time when telling a lie is the best to do? And, is every lie a non-truth? The reason I’ve been having these thoughts is that I just celebrated my birthday. It always sneaks up on me, and I’m not sure why because it happens every year. It was like when I was in school, we always had a test on Friday, and it always surprised me that the teacher had a test. So my birthday this year was somewhat of a surprise because I was so busy doing other things I forgot about it. Having a birthday every year can be a little monotonous. One good thing about my birthday is that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s birthday is two days after mine. And so, if she remembers my birthday, then I will automatically remember hers. I love it when a plan comes together.
