    Once Bitten Twice Shy

    The more you lie...the more you need to think of another lie to cover the one before... How much memory bank can one has in the brain to accomodate all these lies..? How often can you remind yourself what you have told me to ensure the next story said will not bust the lie...

    I Don't Believe Everything I'm Told

    I don't believe everything I'm told.  Sometimes I can tell if someone is lieing by their body language.

    I don't always believe what I'm told

    because actions speak louder than words. Some people that I know to well don't always tell the truth. I have been to much son that makes it hard to trust a person when you first meet.
