Little white lies.

30 May

I’m back! Sorry, I’ve been away. I’m sorry. I’m sorry!

Well…let’s get to it.

You know how women lie about things? Men, I’m sure you’ve heard a few of these gems.

“Which of my friends are hot? It totally doesn’t bother me!”

“Tell me more about your ex-girlfriend. It totally doesn’t bother me!”

“You don’t need to get me anything for Valentine’s Day. It totally doesn’t bother me!”

Alright ladies, we can be known to lie about these things. Probably lying mostly to ourselves when we say ‘it doesn’t bother me.’

But men have their own little lies too.

“Honey, join our softball league. What, you’ve never played softball? No worries baby, it’s not competitive.”

Total lie. Men don’t know how to NOT be competitive. We all remember those guys in high school P.E. who took ping-pong just a little too seriously. I see that glimmer in their eyes when one of our teammates hits a home run; that flinch when someone on our team makes an error; that hopeful look on their faces watching our outfielder under a fly ball; that grinding of their teeth when the other team bats two home. I mean, come on, how can a group of guys who have been playing sports their entire lives, most through college, not want to win? I’ve got some breaking news: you ARE competitive. Even at beer softball.

Now, I’m not saying I’m not competitive, but man it sucks trying to be competitive at something you’re not really good at…

Honestly, I’m actually enjoying softball. Our team is made up of our friends, we are sponsored by a bar, and we are drinking on the bench during the game. And we’ve been rained out like four times, so there’s that…

So, boys, when you get angry about our little white lies, remember that you have some of your own.

What other white lies do men and women tell?
