Everyone tells lies. Whether they’re small half-truths, white lies, completely unintentional or things we’re not even aware of. I think the act of telling lies and the reasons behind them is really interesting. 

So, a little while back, I decided to keep track of every time I lied to see how I lie and what I lie about.

I told 19 lies in a week.


The other week I was at an awards do. It was a glitzy affair at the Hilton on London’s Park Lane (only a bloody purple on the Monopoly board!).

I’m not a glitzy man, far from it, but I went along and drank champagne, did the mingling, the small talk, the fancy food, the table wine. I had a suit on. I felt like a successful grown up and things were good.

Then I went to the toilet.


What if we all had to be really honest on Facebook? 

I’ve had one of those days where I am continually and inexplicably drawn to Facebook. I don’t know why. I have nothing to update the world with, no reason to be there except to digest the non-stop flow of updates. If today is anything to go by, prolonged exposure to Facebook is not healthy.
