Your photostudy tonight is on the Cattle Egret, as the Great Spring Migration continues. But first a quick update on the update from the last post describing the Prince Anole~ event in Walmart.
(i.e. He jumped in her face and she threw a fit, knocking things down, screaming, drawing a crowd, a cop, and the store manager, and she launched the Prince almost to the tall ceiling....).
Anyway, I received a complaint on that post
(from my best critic: the blind guy with the magnifying glass).
He said: Last week I clearly stated that I was NOT a Liar.
Last night I said: I lied like a big dog.
So I bring this to the table of consideration and seed for thought. Yes, I did lie to save my own neck from the angry lady. I did disassociate myself from the lizard and say I did not know him. (He is a lizard, not Jesus; he does not care if I betray him to save us both). If I admitted the truth that I wore an earring lizard to Walmart, I would have been responsible for the broken stuff when the lady started dancing around and waving her arms.
Now I know how the President and others must feel. Maybe sometimes you just have to lie to save your own neck. In human nature, everybody lies. So that's what I bring to the table tonight: When is it okay to Lie? How many lies make one a Liar? And in my case (and the President's) the truth is stranger than fiction!
Who would believe I would wear an earring that is a live lizard?
To lie or not to lie, that is the question!
