Ego Trip

When I was at the wedding last month, I realized what a liar I am. When I was trying to impress someone, which was often, I said I worked in "low income housing, helping people find places to live." And I'd get the oh what a good person you are look and a "that must be very rewarding." When I really just wanted to get rid of an unattractive/boring/annoying person who was trying to talk to me, I said I was a secretary.

I even said that I did free-lance writing in the A&E arena to the groom's step-mother (a desire, not a truth yet)

I did it on Sunday too. Mike, fellow bowler, was trying to talk me up when all I really wanted to do was talk to anyone else, so I told him I was a secretary and that I watched a lot of TV and movies in my free time. If I want to impress someone, it's "oh, I read a lot, go to the mountains, walk, etc."

I think I either have to live up to the lies or just stop the practice entirely.

Or get a second job and say I don't have time to do anything else.

That all sounded pretty honest to me...and very impressive.

Your freelance writing is why I visit this bastion of glory. You can do it.

I would however like to get paid for it.
