Lies

I remember my first bedtime trench story. It sticks with you.

Why do parents lie to their children so often? "Carrots can make you see in the dark", "don't make faces or it'll stay that way", "tell the truth and you won't get in trouble", "santa isn't real, stop putting out cookies". All lies!

When I'm a parent, I'm going to lie all the time.
