If you’re old enough to be reading the internet, you’ve definitely told a regrettable lie before. Maybe it was back in high school when you said you were going to some movie to get your parents off your back, but were actually hanging out with friends. Or maybe you just casually mentioned something in passing to impress a significant other, but now it’s five years later and they’re still bugging you to serenade them with your concert-level clarinet skills.
