You tell your partner that you are going out for a pint with a friend after work? How many will you have?
12, with chasers, and a fight
Your partner has a higher-powered job than you. You tell her this makes you feel:
A little bit emasculated
A little bit horny
A little bit proud
Your boss accuses you of not pulling your weight at work. Do you:
Claim that you have had some family or personal problems which you would prefer not to go into, so it is not really your fault
Say that you have been working on a top secret project for his/her boss that you can’t actually tell him/her about
Admit it and promise to do better
Your sex life with your partner is inadequate. You tell her:
It’s not me or you, it’s Lorraine Kelly, about whom I am thinking at this precise moment
It’s not you, it’s me
It’s not me, it’s you
Your partner asks whether you prefer the blue or the red dress. You answer:
I really have no preference and you will tell me it’s the wrong choice anyway
I have synaesthesia and experience colors as sounds, so I prefer the trombone
The red one. No, you’re right, the blue looks better
Your dad rings up and asks how you are doing. You reply that you are:
A wrong number
Worried about money, health, the future…
You are an unusually truthful individual, possibly due to religious belief or some form of head trauma.
Like most of us, male and female, you lie all the time, by omission, to be kind, or out of a sheer sense of self-preservation.
You not only lie all the time but you seem pathologically to enjoy it. Have you considered a career in politics or as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent?
