I was raised to tell the truth. . .and if I didn’t, or I “sassed back” at my mom, I’d get my mouth washed out with soap! Thankfully, that didn’t happen much. I learned my lesson pretty early and pretty fast! I don’t like the taste of soap.

Sure seems people are getting caught in fibs, flubs, stumbles and slips a lot these days–even outright, who-cares-if-I-lie kind of “Un-truths.”

Not sure how long I would last having my Every Word grabbed by the Gotcha Squads constantly on the prowl for a Big Lie. But, I think I might watch my mouth–so it wouldn’t get Washed Out with Soap.

Who do YOU think blows the most bubbles?
Wish my mother was here!
