It is interesting about lies we don't let them bother us as much as we use to let them. We use to hold politicians accountable for their lies but now we say "well they are pols so how can we except them to be honest!"
Parents often lie to their kids "it won't hurt", "we have no money for X", "we never Y when we were kids". What do you answer to someone if they ask how they look when it looks like they were in a accident with a lot of food? (Fortunately I don't have to lie about my lovely wife, she always looks good to me!)
White lies, black lies, what is the difference?
