I used to own one rosary - a little blue plastic thing, with half of Jesus broken off. Then came my First Communion, and BAM, I suddenly owned seven.

Lies 1


I like lying. You might say it’s a hobby of mine, although I don’t have to dress up in a Civil War uniform or buy special equipment like a magnifying glass or butterfly net to do it. I don’t even need sneakers, which is ironic since lying is a bit like sneaking around. Still, it’s my hobby and...
