What's the point to lying about anything on here? It's all anonymous. Yes, you all know my username. My pic is even posted in my profile. A few may know my first name, and you all know what state I live in. But...none of that information is going to help you find me at all. And if you did, fine. We'll sit down and have some sweet tea and talk.
I have shared, thus far, some pretty interesting and personal, sometimes very difficult things with the people of EP. The likelihood of me meeting anyone from EP is slim, although it would be cool, so why would I take the time and effort to create and keep up with a lie? Been there, done that, it's stressful.
I rarely embellish, however if I do, it's usually pretty obvious and stated as an embellishment somehow. For instance, if you are familiar with my stories, you'll see the parenthesis often enough, or my ...'s to break up my thoughts. Example: I walked into my bathroom and saw a spider as big as my head...or not...(maybe a pack of smokes) and I ran.
Anyway, why lie? I don't have the time to keep up with them anymore. I don't want to waste my creative genius anymore. I assume those that I talk to are being truthful to me and therefore offering the same courtesy in return.
