the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Linda, from Belgium, poses a question that's tougher than it seems:

What's your biggest LIE, ever?


I promised I'd answer each question the best I could, but this one's a stumper. Biggest lie, in that it still bothers me? Or, biggest lie, as in most outrageous story? I imagine that, as a child, I probably told some pretty improbable tales.

Going with option a, I'd have to say telling someone I no longer loved him when, in fact, I still did. It took well over 20 years for me to say the truth and to say that even after all that time, love was still what I felt.


  1. Our biggest lie is "I have read and understood the terms and conditions"

  2. Brilliant! Better even than the standard three...

    Yes, I'll still respect you...
    The check IS in the mail...
    She (He) is just a friend...
