Creepy Query Girl- age five * drops cereal all over the floor in the kitchen* Mother walks in -“Katie! What did you do?”
“It wasn’t me! It was Amy!!!” (points at her three year old sister who still conveniently speaks incomprehensible baby English)
CQG- age ten *gets a little carried away during a water fight (it happens to everyone doesn’t it?) and spits a mouthful of water at a passing car… the car squeals to a stop, reverses and chases her to the neighbors house. Man gets out of the car and rings on neighbor’s door. Creepy hides out in the backyard and then innocently walks down the driveway thinking ‘maybe they didn’t see who spit?’ Alas, the man catches Creepy and asks “That bigger girl put you up to that didn’t she?”
Creepy replies solemnly with fingers crossed behind her back. “Oh yes sir” (In my defense, I felt so bad about getting my friend in trouble; I brought her my piece of pie that night and told her mother the truth)
CQG- age seventeen. “There’s no way I could have been speeding officer. You see my car is overheating as we speak and I’m not even sure it can go 60 miles an hour in this condition…”
CQG- age twenty seven *breathes through her mouth to make her nose sound stuffy* “Yes, yes, I think I have the flu. NO I won’t be coming into work today…”
What are some of the lies you’ve told that stick out in your memory?
