A lie’s sometimes tough to pick out.

(For instance, quick – find the Storm trooper above. See?)

Lies in this 6 Words post are easy to spot. In fact, I asked for them.

Today, you see, is Honesty Day. So in contrary observance, I asked strangers, friends, bloggers, and a few strange blogger friends to tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies. Or, to quote modern British philosopher Phillip Collins:

It’s all been a pack of lies. (drum solo!)

Thank you so much for your deception, dishonesty, chicanery, fraud, trickery, bunk, crookedness, double-dealing, cunning, guile, fraudulence, rascality, and for your unscrupulous, swindling ways, all the live-long day.

    WHAT?! Easter candy has calories?!!???!! I thought eating all those cadbury eggs were part of the whole eating clean fad!!!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Not in Coach Daddy land. Know how my kid’s classroom is a nut-free zone? This place has been a calorie-free zone since the start.

      Cadbury eggs are dairy, I’m pretty sure.

  2. Tami says:

    First time here, Rosey sent me over. I love these six word stories. Is this a regular thing you do? Some of those ‘lies’ are quite funny. As a teacher, I can totally relate to number 46.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Tami – welcome! I always take Rosey’s recommendations. Glad you like this! I do them every month … drop me an email if you’d like to contribute next month! I thought you teachers lived for grading papers …

    There is a time warp out there and I’m going to find it! When I do, I am gonna make a million….I saw, I read, and I rationalized – ‘I’ll write a thank you comment this evening’ …… and four days later I’m doing it… life gets in the way of good intentions – thanks for including me – I’ve been grading papers non-stop – because I LOVE grading papers…. it’s getting close to the end of the year and I need to capitalize on all of my time. Have a wonderful day!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      i’m afraid of the ways I’d abuse a time warp, Clay! the good thing is, these don’t have an expiration date. Great to hear from you friend.
